I just completed a quick mural + installation in the front window at the Brentwood Art Center. Address for those who are in LA and would like to drive by: 13031 Montana Avenue (at 26th St)

I usually put a ton of emphasis on layering in both my paintings and murals. To me, the paint textures created can be as interesting as the image itself. Here I have some bright neon paint under dark blues, taping off for directional patterns. The result is a nice glow that omits from the wall.
I had also planned to create a garden in the window, and it was suggested that I paint the base to match the mural. It really completes the piece! Here I am on the second, blue layer after setting the base.
The garden incorporates found foliage, manufactured foliage as well as painted paper bag flowers.
