Artist and muralist Lynn L. Risor Bradford of Iredell, Texas transformed this Serro Scotty camping trailer into a Victorian delight on wheels for a local client. The camper now looks like Grandma’s country cottage come to life. Bradford, a self-taught artist born in the creative community of Marfa, enjoys painting life’s simple pleasures.
The Serro Scotty trailer now looks like Grandma’s country cottage.
The exterior mural has a classic, American porch with swing and trellis, window boxes full of flowers (which actually attract real butterflies), and even a gazing ball.
Other wonderful details include a faux door handle on the real trailer door, a pink tiled roof, landscaping, and even a cat dozing on the porch railing. A French-style patio table with umbrella is located on the front of the camper and the back has a memorial placard and a classic red and white cruiser bicycle flanked by a fishing pole and tackle box.
The mural details include a clothesline, flyswatter, and a loving child.
The flowers are so realistic, they attract real butterflies.

Bradford didn’t stop at the outside of the trailer, she also painted a Victorian scene on the inside complete with faux sconces and oil lamps, a birdcage, and even a pair of trusty, red cowboy boots.

Bradford regularly posts her paintings and other mural work on the Hometalk website. She has also refurbished various furniture projects, and painted a hunting mural on the wall of young boys’ bedroom.
