This peaceful river and Half Dome mural in San Jose, California is a collage of the clients’ favorite places, tied together into one cohesive image. That’s my client, Don, fly fishing on the McCloud River. His wife, Nancy, is creating a needlepoint creation on the riverbank for one of their many grandchildren with their dog, Moxie, by her side. They have a beautiful view of Yosemite National Park’s most iconic cliff side, their family vacation home, and a golf course tucked into the scene. This wall can be seen from several rooms in the house, and it creates a peaceful backdrop to the patio seating.
