Summer Time Means Murals!!

This summer has been very busy with a variety of murals that I've participated in painting.
I painted in Shipshewana, Indiana  and Kewanee, Illinois as well as Centerville, Iowa.

It was a pleasure to work with everyone that participated in these murals.  It's always a joy to bring color and life to a community through a mural, especially one with historical connections!
I also completed my first sign/mural at the shop and the work isn't over! It looks like there are at least a couple more murals to work on before the end of season. What a great way to spend the summer!

The Cobbler's Children Have Shoes!

After a very busy mural season, I've had a chance to work on some projects at the shop...including my own mural/sign. I'll be moving on to 3D items now, but this is a start...

I separated the mural into 4 pieces...each cut out of aluminum panels as my building is corrugated.

After I finished the banner for the bottom, it was time to get it all assembled on the wall...

I've intentionally left room above it to install a goose-neck light that will illuminate it at night.

Now I'll paint the door and add the address number... Then it's time to begin the 3D rocket mailbox!
