-—The Kirk Reeves mural—-
In July, I painted a 10 by 38 foot mural of Kirk Reeves, the street performer who passed away in 2012. The piece is on NE Grand at Lloyd in Portland, Oregon, and it was featured on KOIN and KGW as well as in this video, which filmmaker Ifanyi Bell created for Oregon Public Broadcasting.

-—Going public—-
The mural was not an easy project, and the articles in this section of my blog reveal some of what I learned as I made my first piece of public art. Among others there is this post describing why this memorial was so important to me and this one about the many issues I had with the City as I worked to make this mural happen.

-—Prints for sale—-
Most of my animal paintings, a few select portraits, and a lot of my photography are available as prints through my RedBubble shop.
