I was giving free range to paint a mural with trees in a bedroom. I was inspired by Sleeping Beauty concept art by Eyvind Earle in the 50s. My client wanted to give the bedroom a gentle, relaxing feel and I thought there was no better story to inspire rest than Sleeping Beauty!
With a friend between flights at the airport and not a lot of time, we had to find something close. Discovered the adorable hidden gem that is Hapeville, Georgia. Here’s a selection of new murals to share!
If you know me, you know how much I love seeing public art and murals in other cities. I was on a tight schedule in Portland because it was a business trip, but I did get to see some great art not only as I made my way around town, but also at the UVAMC reception at the end of the first day of the conference. Portland is a fun and eclectic city and I hope to go back and spend some more time there soon!
Country’s BBQ – Vintage Greyhound Logo
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.
Starry Night Over Peachtree Corners Mural
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!
