Mural Making

The soon-to-open prAna store at 50th & France in Edina, MN has hired me to do some decorative painting on their walls and floors.  I am just finishing up on the last of five mural thingys.

This 8' design is right inside the front door on the stone/concrete floor.

A progress shot of my giant 8' hand. I added flowers to the palm last night.

This flower design is over 9' long on the gorgeous hardwood floor in front of the cash register.

A detail of the flowers.

A detail of one of two 5' wall paintings.

I am accustomed to painting at my desk, while sipping coffee and listening to MPR, so the adjustment to operating a lift in the midst of a bustling construction zone moved me way out of my comfort zone. (In a good way.)

prAna is using local artists to decorate their new stores nationwide. Very cool.

This project was nerve-wracking and exciting. I am so greatful to everyone at prAna for this opportunity and to the nice people who helped me at "the site"- especially Laura CB, Laura V and "Jones-y", the site superintendent. 

On a surprisingly unrelated note- prAna has used some music by my BF, Brad Senne, in a couple of their short films. Have a look > here < at the 12 min mark. ;0)

The store opens for biz on Oct 28th.

Lovely! I bet these are breathtaking in person. Working at such a scale seems difficult...I think you've conquered it magnificently.
