While we were on our San Francisco vacation, Cozy's dad requested a wall mural similar to the one he had seen on our dining room wall when he last visited.

The wall is painted with shapes, lines, words and reverse-applied newsprint (in Korean). However, the wall surface is covered with a thin silver glaze that reflects light. On first glance, the wall seems blank, but as you examine it, you can see echos of the images buried beneath the silver layer. It changes as the lighting conditions in the room change.

The slide show below shows the process of building a wall mural for Charles that's similar to the one at our house.
