Boise Mural progress

I'm in Boise, Idaho working on mural number 2!
I won't post the design here, just a few details so far...

Here's the wall and an early progress photo. More to come. As always, click on images to view larger.

I have not been keeping up with this blog. I completely forgot to post anything about my Corvallis show which is still up. I'll add more on that soon.

Mural Complete

All that's left now is the anti-graffiti coating, then send out those thank you gifts to all of you super generous donors out there and this whole project officially becomes the past. It was a lot of fun.

On N. Mississippi Ave. between Fremont and Cook at Ecliptic Brewing.

Mural Funding

As part of my effort to raise money for the mural in North Portland on Mississippi Avenue I am offering these paintings at slightly below their regular gallery price. Instead of simply paying me, the proceeds will go directly toward expenses involved in the mural project. For a donation of $2475 you can choose any one of the paintings below. If you are in the Portland Metropolitan Area I will personally deliver the original to your door (If you live somewhere else I am afraid to inform you that insanely expensive shipping charges may apply. OK not that insane. Just enough to make the total more or less match the original gallery price of the painting).

note: Hatchfund is a non-profit and your donation is tax deductible. But Hatchfund requires an additional 10% in order to run their programs so the actual donation amount to the project is $2250. The good news is that the entire amount that you pay (minus $100 material costs) is completely tax deductible!
