This mural below ( a muraflage ) is about 10 feet by 30 feet and is mostly oil paint on canvas! I painted this randomly (zen) in my studio that we called ‘the LART Studio’ at The Studios At Sheridan in Peoria (2016). I enjoyed having such a large space to work on large projects like this where I stapled canvas to the wall, primed it and then just went to work with mostly oil paints. Nothing was planned out but when you work that way you can surprise yourself with some unexpected results! The studio was a little too expensive for Hollye and I to keep more than a year but we participated in the CIAO First Friday events and made a lot of people happy with our public coloring book walls!!
The local newspapers (Peoria Journal Star and affiliates) referred to this place as a “hot spot” for it’s CIAO First Friday gatherings right after my gallery show in the central area! You can see from the picture below that my gallery show was fun!
