Completing a Mural

The work is done! I now get to share the completing of a mural for the Haystacks restaurant in Sulphur Springs, Texas! They have also added it as a background image on their website!

My first video post on the project is here. It basically shows the sketch. Here are the next 3 short videos showing the progress and completed project!

Getting the Ground Covered

Sky Work

Detail Work and Finish

This was a fun project and quite different than working at the easel. Plus working with acrylics and acrylic mural paint rather than oils was also different and using Styrofoam plates asĀ  palettes!

Here’s some still shots of the mural. Click the images for a larger view. So what do you think?

 

Oil Painting Commission of Boynton Pass

Recently I was able to experience a change of subject matter from my Texas themed works for an oil painting commission of Boynton Pass, a location near Sedona, Arizona.

The following photo was provided for inspiration. However, there were a couple of requests, including a canvas size of 30×46 and then removing the highway and making more of a path and finally adding a century plant on the left.

The end result is the “Majestic Red Rocks of Boynton Pass.”

This was a fun painting to do and a nice diversion. My client was very well pleased and the painting will be featured in a special spot in his new home in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

If you have a special photo that you would liked to have painted, please contact me.
