Ned and Margaret Colbert with Mae

Ned was the director of the Museum of Natural History in New York for 35 years and his wife, Margaret, was a mural painter.  The Ruth Hall Paleontology Museum at the Georgia O’Keefe Ghost Ranch in New Mexico asked us to be “Margaret’s hands” and paint her mural in their new display.  Margaret was 82 years old and came in every day, watched us paint, and told us what to do.  It was one of the coolest experiences we have ever had as mural painters.

                          How to get a Mural


 The mural portion of our website is divided into four categories and you can check out Murals, Cloud Murals, Portrait Murals, Faux Finishes and Theatre and Film Sets to see specific samples that may be relevant to the type of artwork that interests you.  Every mural is unique and a short discussion with us will quickly help you decide what we can do for you.


 First contact us by email or phone and we will find out a few basics like where, what and when. If you are long distance, email us a photo of your environment and some information about the space where you would like the mural.  We can then evaluate how best to proceed with a design. If you need help with a design or ideas for your mural, we are happy to offer many possibilities. Our design phase is included in the price of the mural. For a basic design that we do not paint we charge $150. With a design agreed upon, we will estimate what is required to access the place where the mural will go and how long it will take to complete.  Frequently with cloud paintings on a ceiling, we can show you a photo from our large collection of samples and we are ready to paint!
