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!

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.
