Life is Often Too Seriously Taken, so for that reason, I'm going to post a silly poem from time-to-time. These first several will each be taken from a small booklet entitled, Lighten Up! 100 Funny Little Poems, compiled and edited by Bruce Lansky.

The Mural is Pretty Much Done

We might find a couple of touch-ups to do yet, but for all practical intents and purposes, the mural on the Church nursery wall is finished.

One thing we must do is to coat the paint with (polyurethane?) so that it will be scrub-able. If we don't coat it and someone needs to wash the wall, the paint will be removed. Yipes! It makes me sad to think about the possibility!

Anyway, this is what it looks like as of this afternoon.

Those little pachyderms look tired!
Maybe that's how I was feeling this afternoon! ha.

The alligators have a couple of teeth each...

Some of the flowers were painted...

And poor Mrs. Noah is forever plagued by mice!

Do YOU have an idea of the best way to coat the mural?

Hi Karen, Thanks! Isn't it fun to have a reason to do something so whimsical??

Spray it with Water-based Polycrylic Protective Finish by Minwax!! This mural is beautiful, I work in the Nursery for our Church every Sunday, have for almost 4 years.

What a delightful mural!

Karen, I believe Darla's suggestion is very similar to the product you described. Plus, I'm certain I can purchase that here.

Darla, Thanks. I'll be looking forward to finding this. I see by an internet search, that it's available in a gallon can for painting.

Hi Garden Lily! Thanks for the compliment! :-)
