Mural for Seemanta’s shed, 2015

Seemanta lives in the center of Boulder. She commissioned me to paint a design on her shed in 2015, right when I was painting Gene’s mural. Seemanta is a master gardner and wanted to see Tiger Lilies, Sunflowers and birds. I took time out from Gene’s mural to work on this project. Instead of painting directly on the shed, I fashioned a piece of wood that could fit in the exact space she wanted, and did the painting on that, in my studio. The painting is therefore separate from the shed, designed with future removal in mind. Fun fact: both this painting and Gene’s mural are within a 5-minute walk from the mural I painted at the Unity Church.

I wanted to show the progression of this painting, from start to finish.
