Bookstore Mural

I see I completely failed to update during the month of August. :/ But it was because I was busy! Jennifer and Andy Gyurisin of Winchester Book Gallery, a great independent book store, hired me to paint a mural for them. I'd done one for the shop a few years ago, on canvas. This time, I got to paint on location, in the children's section.

Andy and Jen had the idea of a 'feast of books'. On the first wall, I painted books growing on trees and kids harvesting them. On the second wall, I painted a 'book bakery', where blank pages go to be filled with ideas, words, and pictures. The third and final wall was where everyone ends up - at a 'book banquet'.
