This Italian scene is hand painted on the wall of a Roman-style, master tub surround.
Artist/Designer Dan Thornton designed and supervised the construction of this Roman-style tub surround. His design input began with the architect drawing up the initial floor plans. Working with the builder, Dan rendered elevation drawings measured to scale for the builder to construct the tub deck and arched soffits above four columns; he drafted the column shapes and dimensions to be custom built and shipped from Mexico, He hand painted a stone-implied texture on the overhead arches. He and artist Zuleica Thornton personally selected the varieties of travertine tiles and pavers for the surround and tub deck. Dan measured and laid out the tile work design with the tiler to frame the spaces preparatory for his two paintings of serene Italian countryside and seascape murals.
Dan Thornton's input assured the master bath surround would more than meet the home owner's expectations and achieve an optimum in artistic form and function. -- all combined to create a luxurious and relaxing bath time experience.
