Mural from Summer of 2009

Here are some photos from a mural I did over last summer. It is at the local swing dance club. They were having a themed dance "Under The Sea" so they asked me to paint the mirrors. These are some of the characters I came up with. It was difficult at first to think of how I could relate dancing to Under the Sea but I think I succeeded. After drawing it all out it took only 5 hours to paint. I had a total of 5 colors to choose from. Sometimes I work better with restrictions and time limits.

Lizzie Borden

Lizzie Borden had an ax,
She gave her mother 40 wacks.
When she saw what she had done,
She gave her father 41.

My assignment was to paint Lizzie Borden. The poem above basically describes who she was. This is my progress so far. I still have to add color.
