Created with Liquitex acrylics on wood, “Loomer” measures 4.3′ x 3.6′. This painting was developed when I was given the mural project in Lafayette (see previous post) and was completed at the same time. It ended up having its own personality.

When I finish a piece I write details about its life on the back, like the time period and what albums I was listening to most at the time. The phrase “Look Up” sums up my perspective on life. Positive minds create their own positive world. B$#$%.

It was super cool painting at this size. I plan on going bigger next time.

Mural In Lafayette, CO

mural and me serious

It’s done!

Last month I finished work on my first mural in the great state of Colorado. Located on a garage door in Lafayette, “Loomer – The Mural” measures approximately 8′ tall by 10′ wide.

The mural was done in conjunction with the great people at Project YES, a nonprofit also based in Lafayette that provides leadership opportunities for young people through the arts and service-learning. Check them out – they are doing some really great things for the community. The more art in kids’ lives, the bettaaa.

I met many cool people during the course of this project and was excited to see how much is going on in Lafayette’s art scene. Can’t wait to get back there – I hope to be rocking a booth at Art Night Out several times this summer. More info on that to follow.
