Mouseling Muskeeter in Works in Progress: Painting Posted May 3, 2011 Do you have the ability to add a few flowers to the vines growing up the wall. Both for the fact that it is your daughter's birthday and girls usually like flowers, and also that I think a small splash of color will help offset the browns that you are referring to and help them out. We have a vine of orange trumpet flowers that grow along our back fence that I think would look great on this piece. Second suggestion, depending on your time you have and ability, would be to grab a second mouse, probably the banjo player, and do a little conversion on him to make him sitting on top of that wall singing away. Would both be cute, and also would give a little more life into the scene. Or maybe a water barrel sitting up against the wall with like a hunk of cheese on it that he is warding off a would be cheese stealer... Your idea of painting a fleur de lis sounds pretty good. Or you could paint a wedge of cheese there too.
