I recently had the great opportunity to do a mural for the Connie Morella Library in Bethesda, Maryland. It is 40' long and 5' tall. I painted it in my studio on a giant scroll contraption, rolling out 8 feet of canvas at a time. It is painted in Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics on primed canvas. It took me 5 weeks working 6 days a week and on the seventh day we rolled up one section and rolled out the next blank 8 feet of canvas. Rolling it took four people because of the weight. It was installed April 12th by Jim Lackford of Paper and Paint in Silver Spring. Thank goodness for his expertise!
It was wonderful having so many dogs and cats in my studio for awhile! I miss them but I can always go to the library to visit. It is really nice to have a mural in my own community!
