Ceiling Mural Finished!

Well, I finally finished the ceiling mural in our master bedroom. It turned out to be more of a challenge than I thought it would be, but it was worth it, my wife and I are very happy with the way it turned out. The putti are based on photos of us when we were toddlers. The photos don't really do it any justice - it looks much nicer in person.
