Here are some photos........
I started focusing on developing my own work after my father passed away in an effort to distract myself from the sadness, to make myself feel better. Then after a bit, it started to feel really good to try and make things that might help other people feel good, too. So that kind of became a quiet goal with my work. This mural is visible from the southbound blue line el train....downtown-bound.. full of people headed to work or appointments:: serious, caught up in thoughts (like we all can be, so often)... My hope with the mural is simply that it gives someone a moment of lightness in their day and maybe a feeling of connection or openness to the people around them.
Ok, that's enough personal stuff. I rarely do that on my blog, and will surely feel a bit uncomfortable after posting this. Stop by and see the mural if you can! I hope it makes you feel silly or smiley or big in the heart or something really warm and good like that.
