Trompe-l'oeil an illusion of reality

Years ago I found a book about trompe-l'oeil in the library. I fell in love with the illusion of an open sky. I photocopyed some pages and kept them in my folder of decorations, thinking that some day when I had a house, I would paint those murals. 5 years later we bought a little house and as soon as we moved in I started painting all the walls of the house in Amber wave, with the exception of my future baby's room. (In that time I was not pregnant but I was preparing his or her room.) I chose the Peter Rabbit and his friends theme from the " Great big treasury of Beatrix Potter Book". The baby's  room is really small so it did not take me too much time to finish it.
The photo above is my bathroom ceiling.

My dining room ceiling. I would like a chandelier in this room.

My baby's room. " The tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck"

"The tale of Mr. Jeremy fisher"
"The tale of the Flopsy Bunnies"

"The tale of Squirrel Nutkin"

My bedroom Ceiling.

My kitchen. I would love a Chandelier instead of that ceiling fan.
People say that I am an artist but I don't think that about myself. I just paint for a hobby. For me an artist is a person who goes to school and studies art. I have not done that, but I really find joy creating and painting things that I really like. I take the time to smell the roses, enjoy life and love my little family, listening to reggae, latin music, and music from the 40s and 50s. I really love shopping at vintage shops, flea markets and thrift stores. My heart jumps when I find a good deal.
I hope that you have a wonderful day and come back soon.
