Mural Sketch in Progress

The video above is the sketch for the mural I’m getting ready to start. This small 12 x 12″ painting is 1/10th the size the mural will be. It will be painted on an outside wall on the back patio. The people I’m painting it for have a very lovely garden yard and I am excited to see how my art will look among the trees and flowers. I picked Spring colors for that very reason. Then, even when it’s not Spring, they will be reminded of the yard when it’s in bloom! The idea is that the Sun mural will shine year round. I hope they like the design. 🙂

Now that I’m all finished with the work for the NM Cancer Center Gallery show, I’m switching gears to start work on a mural job I’m very excited to get started! I do have another art show to get ready for, but that deadline is in July and I don’t have as many pieces to get together for it. However, I will be starting a new guitar painting for that show, very soon!

My art show in August is at the local Albuquerque Sierra Club offices. I’ve decided to make it a recycled art show, with the center piece being one of my guitar paintings. There will also be plenty of recycled vinyl record paintings too! 🙂

Mural Project has begun!

Before

Signed the contract on Monday and started priming the walls on Wednesday for my very first mural project! I’m so excited about this whole thing! 🙂 My eldest son, Bryan is helping me with it all which has been a lot of fun. It’s been a long time since we’ve spent this much time hanging out one on one and now that he’s an artist too, we are discussing doing more mural projects together.

getting started

Painting began yesterday, below are progress photos we took along the way. Today is a studio day, working on sketches that we will use to transfer drawings of lambs onto the wall before painting them. Having so much fun! Enjoy the progress photos and stay tuned for more. 🙂
