I have yet to paint a mural in a hospital, but have always wanted to. I have seen lots of murals done in hospitals that I have gone to and I especially love to see murals in the pediatric departments or children’s hospitals. I think a hand painted wall mural in a children’s hospital is so special.
I cannot imagine the struggles that some children go through with numerous illnesses, some even life threatening. And what better way to take your mind off of the pain than to let your imagination get lost in a beautiful wall mural.
Over the next few posts, I may focus on hospital murals because I really find them so inspiring. Baby nursery murals are great too, but only a limited amount of people are able to enjoy. In a hospital, hundreds of people come through on a daily basis.
In this post I am showcasing Under the Sea / Under the Ocean hospital murals.
The first image above was done by Carol Hawkins Studio for the St. David’s Hospital in Austin Texas. I love the vibrant colors!
This next mural was done by Wayne+Deitz Design Group for a Children’s Medical Center.
This mural was done for the Woman’s and Children’s Hospital in Louisiana. I am not sure who it was done by. I found it on the Woman’s Foundation, Inc. Site.
This is a mural that was done on canvas by the Nebraska Art Department for the Summerlin Hospital Children’s Ward. It looks so realistic!
The next 2 murals are my favorites! They were also done by the Nebraska Art Deparment for the Summerlin Hospital.
If you are an artist who has painted a children’s hospital mural and would like to showcase your work, please contact me. I would love to here about what inspired you and how you felt while painting.
