I have made a few murals, but nothing compares to doing them outside. It’s a whole new game for me. I’ve been lucky these past few days – no rain, nice weather, shade. I can’t complain. This mural is being completed in a beautiful backyard in Washington, D.C. Of course it features the water bodies that surround DC and run through it – the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers, as well as Rock Creek. This mural will also feature many landmarks and symbols that are important to the people who live here. Here’s a little bit of my process, I can’t wait to show you the finished piece!
The wall has been going through some changes these last few weeks. There’s been some problem solving, much needed breaks, and some breakthroughs. I’m really having fun with this project and the idea has taken on a different kind of significance and study. I feel like it’s moving forward.
So with the much needed breaks I’ve also been working on a few other paintings to keep it interesting. I’ve ordered more wood to keep going on a series of smaller abstractions and of course wood panels.
