A collection of kitsch- tastic light-up paintings serves

the scenery in the old Disney animated films” -- and
brightening up the space. As
Darleen notes: “One guest walked in, took a look around and
said, "Windows would be a distraction!" I thought that
was great. My light-up paintings are my windows.”
