Public Mural

Finished mural on the side of our shed. It can be seen off of Crystal Lake Drive in Corvallis across from factory on the right. Painted with misc. reused house paint and acrylic on wood pannel in late summer 2011.
 My first mural in a public space is now complete! I wanted to paint one on the side of our shed so neighbor's walking by could enjoy some art instead of a run down looking building. It is quite a sucess and brightens up the shady space amazingly!
