Last Thursday I participated in the Reimagine 13th Street event with several other artists, vendors, and food trucks. This event is “to help residents “reimagine” what the corridor could look like with fewer, slower traffic lanes, on-street parking and revived businesses along the route.” (Read more here).
In addition to setting up some artwork and jewelry to sell, I also helped Midtown Columbus prepare for the celebration by painting the windows of the mostly empty center to give people an idea of what could be there.
Yesterday I had the honor of painting the iconic vintage greyhound-turned-dining room of Country’s BBQ on Broadway. I am so excited that people will see a little something of mine everyday! And if it was done well enough, they may not even realize it as they will think it was there the whole time.
I mean, how many artists can say they got to paint on a 1947 silverside greyhound bus? That people eat in? See more pictures here.
Last month I painted a mural on the wall of Masterpiece Mixers in Peachtree Corners. The owners wanted something to represent the area, and so we went with the Forum shopping center. This was a massive mural, and I totally killed it knocking it out in about 12 hours as I had only one day to create it!
I’ve recently returned from a trip to Naples, Florida. Every year they have a chalk art festival which my company participates in (we have a franchise in Naples). I had a lovely few days in southern Florida as I attempted to relax and take a few days to enjoy the beauty and get some inspirations for new paintings! And there was also our chalk art painting. We had a late start due to rain, but we had a great time! I cannot wait for next year!
