A Painted Garage Door Mural for Your Home?

Sawmill Lake, Exterior Garage Door Mural in Calgary AB painted 2022 by me (Debbie.lee Miszaniec) on my garage door.

This summer I completed this mural on my garage door. There has been such a great response to the project that I may open up bookings for garage door murals for next summer.  Prices for this type of work would likely start around $2500 for projects in the Calgary area, but I would only have a few slots available between late spring and early fall, weather dependant. If you are interested in something like this let me know.

Life, A Creative Process: Challenge. 48x78 Acrylic on Canvas, 2021

Produced by Dawn van de Shoot and photographed by Shannon Smith, this collaborative story telling project has created some truly memorable images and I was honoured to participate.
