Entertainers Beyond the Sea, 8 x 12 foot wall mural, acrylic, 2017
This mural has many unusual characters from the world of the arts. Artists often live lives a bit out of the box. Some of the people here are archetypal, some drawn from people in my life, but with my crowd I tried to tell a story of life, joy, music, sadness and hope. People who have had pain and difficulty at times can see beyond the day to day to things of deeper significance.
This is a 14 x 40 foot mural I was commissioned through the Percent for Arts Program to paint for the new Capital Judicial Center in Maine's state capital of Augusta. The mural is titled Kennebec and tells of the history and importance of the river to Maine.
The Brunswick-Trinidad Sister City Association, sponsored this mural in Brunswick, Maine, celebrating Brunswick's friendship with Trinidad, Cuba. Joshua Chamberlain, Henry Longfellow, James Bowdoin, José Marti, Harriet Beecher Stowe are among the 50 Mainers and Cubans represented in the joyful throng dancing through the painting. The mural measures 8 x 32 feet and is located at 11 Pleasant Street.
