Blue Line Studios - Murals


MY SPECIALITY!! My favorite thing to do is total transformation to a space! Murals can be painted on Canvas and installed on your wall in your home or office. They can be painted and sent as gifts or painted and installed so that if you decide to move, you can take it with you! John specializes in painting and installing canvas murals.  This concept saves time and money by allowing the artist to paint in studio rather than on site; thereby saving money in travel expenses and time, which in turn, means saving you money!

Zephyr and Flora on acrylic canvas

Zephyr and Flora on canvas

A beautiful image caught my eye while I was looking for an artist online. For two years I had this image on my screen saver thinking the entire time that I could not afford it. One day I contacted John and after we spoke about my budget, I sent a deposit! My friends thought I was crazy because I live in Montgomery, AL, and John, who I never met, lives in VA. After the painting was complete, I flew John down and he installed it in one day! He made the process seem as easy as if he lived 10 minutes away. I could not wait to see my friend’s faces after it was hung!”

Mural on canvas of a bar scene

“My husband and I hired John after a designer recommended him to us. I wanted to create a scene in my basement where it would appear that you can walk into another room while playing pool. I didn’t want to use any people in the mural. I was just looking for something simple. After getting to know John, I realized nothing can be simple! John looks for the uniqueness in every job! As we walked throughout my home I was thinking about my father who recently passed. John felt that he should be added to the picture. When the mural was complete, I was speechless and my emotions took over. Looking at my father at the bar was so real! It was like he was with me. We wanted it to be painted on canvas in case we moved. Five years later we moved to Denver, NC. John removed the mural from the wall and installed it in our new home. We love this painting so much we had put it in our will!”

Large ceiling mural with columns and statues

“Heavens Gate”- Haymarket VA. Won 1st place out of 900 entries in Las Vegas.

“A designer suggested calling John because we needed to repair a table that was done by a different faux painter. We were so delighted with john and his work; we decided to hire him to paint the rest of our home. John provided us with two detailed paintings of what he proposed to do with our entry ceiling. John was on time and worked every day until the job was complete to our satisfaction. Each day I enter my home I can’t help but look up!”
