Prescott Heroes mural

GUITAR ART

GUITAR ART Recently, I learned how to use automotive paint. I painted my scooter.

DEER VALLEY AIRPORT MURAL painting progression

Deer Valley Airport Mural Day 1: This mural, started Feb 18th 2008 presented some logistical problems.  The mural measures 12’x5’2”, small by most of my murals standards, but it is in an awkward place, about 4’ from the ground on a wall that had quite a bit of texture, had a large built-in counter in…
