Blog Take-Off Day!

Yes, after a four and a half month (phew! I was afraid it was longer) hiatus, I am back to posting! Summer is definitely over here in southern New England, with trees turning from their Summer greens to the myriad warm colors of Autumn. What a beautiful season! I am working now on a landscape that has a base undercoat of rich yellow.

Early in August I finished the mural (in two sections) for Bread and Chocolate in Hamden CT. It shows part of a house in an architectural style typical of the coffee growing region of Columbia as well as the many attendant plants and flowers well loved by the women of the area. I am very proud of this work not only because I love how it came out but also because so many people who see it tell me that it transports them to another place away from the travails of life in our fast paced world.

Here’s snapshot of the larger mural (there are actually two but they are meant to be viewed as a single concept):

Have you considered having a mural done? They expand your space and enliven your environment – even those that encourage a sense of wonder and tranquility.
