Colorful murals keep a daughter’s memory alive – The Washington Post

What started as a therapeutic window-painting project in her daughter’s room just before she died in 2011 has brought Weller back to paint her whimsical murals in eight other pediatric rooms.

The paintings are big, colorful and splashy — filled with birds, trees and fish — and they brighten the otherwise antiseptic rooms of critically ill children.

They make Weller, 56, of Gaithersburg, think of Lauren. And she hums as she paints them.
