Mural Project For Pediatricians Office

This is a very cool Pediatric office located in Port Charlotte, FL. We created murals for their waiting rooms and for 13 exam rooms. Young patients are not sure what to expect when they walk into a room. It is a very fun and welcoming place with amazing doctors and a great staff.

Don't buy decorations off the shelf for your office... make it a place that people talk about and want to come back too. Enjoy the tour of all of the murals and listen close for some fun sound effects too.

Mural Gifts - Elder Care Facilities

Announcing a special Gift for Elder Care Facilities.

“The residents absolutely love the mural, but they loved watching the process and Scott’s interaction with them even more.” – Joff Stride, Executive Director, Chambrel at Island Lake.
I love working with the elderly.  I have had the opportunity to experience some great care being offered to loved ones and friends as they age.  People make the difference in each facility, and sometimes just a little time with the residents can make their day a little brighter.  I recently completed a mural for Chambrel at Island Lake, an Independent Living facility in Longwood, Florida.  I enjoyed the day of painting and interacting with the residents and hope that I was able to, in my small way, share something of lasting beauty.

The Announcement:
I want to continue to repeat that experience, so I am offering a FREE mural project each month to an Elder Care Facility (This can be a pretty broad term and can include Independent Living, Assisted Living, Long Term Care Facilities, Senior Centers, Hospice Care etc.)  I am hoping to find places where a mural can brighten up an inside area or add beauty to on outside area where residents come together.  The subject matter can be anything that works for the facility though I find nature (landscapes with flowers, water, etc.) and murals that feel like you can walk right into them offer a peaceful view for the elderly.  Click here to view the mural tab on this site to see a small sample of the mural projects I have worked on over the last decade.
It really is a Gift!  Yes, there are no strings attached.  If the project involves an over night stay due to traveling, I do ask for a hotel for a night.  Most murals can be completed in one day (though I do take as much time as each resident wants to talk about the painting as it progresses).

How do I submit a Facility?  Management of the Facility can contact me by email or by calling 888-333-8787.  If you are a resident or know a place that could use a mural please share this blog post with them so they can call or email me.  This is a first come first serve proposition and I will do everything I can to work with each facility on a schedule that works with their calendar and my calendar of upcoming projects.

So, Spread The Word...

Tuscany Village Video

This video shows the creation of Tuscany Village by Scott Stafstrom. To view a high resolution photo and info about the painting please go to the previous post :)

Tuscany Village

The highest point in this hill top village has the best view of the warm Tuscany landscape below. The flowers are blooming and the slow pace of this late afternoon day in the Tuscan sun is mesmerizing. Stop and smell the flowers and watch them being created along with the rest of this traditional oil painting. Enjoy!

Special thanks to www.tuscanyvillages.com for the photos and inspiration for this piece!  Grazie mille :)

Romeo & Juliet Mural

This is a mural that I painted on canvas in the studio and installed in a Romeo and Juliet style balcony in a home near Orlando. Here is the before and after and a close up of the happy couple:
(I also faux painted the balcony to match the wood from the front door)

More murals coming soon... I decade later, over one thousand mural and decorative painting projects... and I can't wait for the next one :)
