Whew, this is pretty big. It took me about 10 hours of work.
There's only 1 way that leads to the end. I don't think that anyone is going to try and find the way :)

"The City of Happiness is in the State of Mind"

This is a mural that I've just completed for my good friend Terri. We stuffed all of her hopes and dreams into a fantasy town based upon the Montmartre area of Paris. Neither of us have been there, so please excuse the extreme liberties that I've taken.

In the center, she has the shop she's always wanted. I have a big fantastic art gallery in the front right. In front of my studio are her parents walking arm-in-arm as they were on their wedding day in 1950. The woman and child at the flower cart are a memory of my friend with her daughter when her daughter was about ten. The bistro at the far left is a restaurant for her son-in-law who loves to cook with all of our friends present at the tables. And at the very far right of the picture are Terri and I dreaming of the paths our futures will take us.

I wish my camera were better at capturing the little details like the little birds bringing good fortune, but you can sort of make those out. Our friends also have little shops in the background, but that lettering would be very hard to capture.

The whole wall is 90" tall by 73" wide, painted in acrylic. This is about a 40" swath of the whole mural that doesn't include a railing in the lower foreground.

PS: You'll notice a light switch over the music store!

Growing up in Michigan has given me a deep appreciation for Fall. Most of my favorite memories of Michigan involve long walks through vibrant forests, crisp air that turned my nose red, crunchy leaves, roasted almonds and hot spiced apple cider...

A lot of people look at fall as something sad or melancholy as everything begins to die before winter. But it's not so! This is the final frenzy from flora and fauna as everyone scurries to prepare for winter. There is so much to do, so much going on! Even the wind seems to push us on, hurrying us along that sweeping path toward the cold and dark months ahead.

Materials used:
Shoe box
Paper
Balsa wood

„... I think we went wrong again at the hall of skulls!”

So, this is my fan art piece in honor of the game, that brought me out of gaming retirement. I love the dark atmosphere of the Diablo, but with so many heroes setting out to destroy evil once and for all, a few of them are just bound to be the B-team.

Blue Jay I found in my backyard that I took a picture of a year ago.
Clearly the season it's representing is winter...
