Mural Project Update

I’ve fallen a bit behind in the polls for the 1881 Project’s Mural Contest but I won’t let that get me down…

I’d like to share some  more pictures of my work for the project, both during the process and the final piece. I’m very pleased with my work, and I think it’s a great piece. I think that they needed someone to participate whose work is a little bit on the “lighter” side, and I’m glad they picked me! I’m also pleased that I got to represent lady artists for the competition as well.

Whether I win the competition or not, I’m happy I participated. Please enjoy these photographs taken by me and my Dear Boyfriend, who was kind enough to take a break from his busy weekend and hang out with me throughout most of the competition.

If you haven’t already voted for my piece, please visit the VOTING PAGE for the 1881 Project. I would greatly appreciate your vote!

**Voting has now ended. Thank you all for your support!

VOTE FOR ME!

Please VOTE FOR ME!

If you haven’t heard, I recently painted a mural for a Live-Art Competition in Los Angeles over the weekend of September 23 and 24. I created a lovely little well not-so-little, painting that depicts Hollywood Boulevard on Parade. It is a fun and playful piece that captures both my personal style, and what I always imagined Hollywood to be like. If you’ve never been to Hollywood, it’s a little different than what I imagined, but it does always feel like a parade has just ended. There is always music playing, food cooking, and there is always someone wearing a costume or handing out balloons. I think that my piece captures the idea of Hollywood very well, just without any of the copyrighted characters that seem to spend their time there.

Here’s how to vote:

More information is available on the 1881 Project website, but this is a competition for the community of Los Angeles AND the WORLD to participate in the outcome of this competition. I was picked along with 8 artists to paint an individual mural inspired by one of “Los Angeles’ Famous Boulevards”, and we each chose very different subject matter, mediums, and boulevards. If you like my piece, I would really appreciate your vote! You can vote with your email address OR through Facebook. If artistic democracy wasn’t reason enough to vote, each voter is entered to win an ipad 2.

Many Thanks,

Mural Project Update

Starting at noon on Saturday, September 23 the BLVD Hotel hosted an art competition. 9 artists were picked and I was one of them. I got a bit of a little start (I had to work until 5PM), and immediately got to work.

Here are some pictures of the work. I’ll be sure to post more as soon as I retrieve them from my camera.

Mural Project

I recently submitted a design idea to the BLVD Hotel and Spa for a mural design competition they are holding. It is a competition for artists in the Los Angeles area wherein the  artists of the top 8 mural projects compete in front of a live audience from September 24 thru September 25. Each artist is allowed an 8 by 6 foot “canvas” on which to paint their design. After Sunday the 25th, the pieces are uploaded to the hotel’s website, and the public votes on the “top” piece.


I was one of the 8 artists picked!

The competition starts at 12 PM Saturday, but I will be arriving late since I was unable to get a sub for work until then, and goes until 6PM Sunday. My piece depicts Hollywood Boulevard. Each artist was asked to design a piece inspired by or featuring one of 8 “famous boulevards of Los Angeles.”

I will be sure to post pictures of the process as it happens. It should be a lot of fun, but it will also be very hard.  I’m pretty darn excited! I have a feeling that I will be pretty pooped Sunday night, so please be patient if I do not post anything until Monday.
