I’ve been asked to design and possibly paint and mural for a restaurant in my town. I’ve never done something so large, but I’ve got a good plan and think it’s going to turn out amazing if they decide to let me do it. I hope I get to have this experience!
Macado’s wanted some of the highlights of Farmville to be the main focus of the mural’s design. I decided on the following buildings- Longwood’s Rotunda, the Farmville Train Station, the hospital, firestation, and the entrance to Hampden- Sydney. I also included an old fashioned train pulling into the train station, the Highbridge trail in the background and a view of Main Street, all the way to the right of the mural.
I’ll be including the names of the locations on the signs in front of the buildings/landmarks. Also- in case you couldn’t tell, the black boxes are the windows in the side of the building. The whole mural is probably somewhere around 12′ high by 30′ long. I really hope I get to do it!!
I’ve also been working on this new pet portrait for a friend. The subject is his best friend’s dog who passed away recently. I love memorial portraits, although they are mournful, I think they are so sweet.
