After I painted the HV Stampede I was asked to do a live painting piece at Pennington Day on Saturday May 16, 2015. Pennington New Jerseys Largest Street Festival. So the concept that we talked about was when urban meets rural. So I created a rural scene and filled it with my signature patterns and designs. I added a grain silo and old truck as th focal points. The background sky contains a simple funky legible “Pennington”. I used warm and cool colors to give the piece depth. I got great feedback from everyone and I am very pleased with the outcome.

I got a call from an old friend Charmaine. I painted walls in her gym about 6 years ago. She told me that she was managing a new gym and wanted a mural to liven up one of the walls. The company sent me a mock up of what they wanted and I replicated it on the wall. This job was challenging because it was a relatively large wall 12ft x 15ft and most of the work needed to be done after hours so that I didn’t disturb the customers. Planning is very important when doing a project like this. I made sure I had all my supplies and I carefully masked the area around the wall to be sure not to get any paint where it didn’t belong. All in all it was a fun project and I’m proud of the results.

We have been waiting since 2006 to paint the back wall at Terracycle but never could because it was owned by another company. This year I found out that Terracycle was buying the building and we would be able to paint this “virgin” wall. Ras and myself had not painted together in a while so we decided to paint together on Sunday, April 27th. Ras recently saw a Bobby Fisher documentary and said he wanted to do a chess themed wall. Being a chess fiend I was excited. Ras showed me the reference for the portrait and I worked the chess theme into my piece.
