A Pop of Color-Gate Mural

Each week team members come with special talents and gifts.  In June, we had a few team members from Welsh Baptist in Maryland were artists.  Erin & Barb designed a mural for the front gate of Alex's House.

They used the inspiration of the tropical backdrop of Haiti for the main portion of the mural.  They also designed silhouettes for around the outer edges of the door.

Over the course of the week team members helped prep the door, paint base coats, and outline silhouettes.  Next the artists went to work on the main focal point.  The mural adds a nice pop of color to our home.  After it was completed, many of the children would stand and gaze at the art!

Check out a few photos of our new mural.  Thanks to the team from Welsh Baptist for our beautiful new artwork!
