Start of the mural SOARING for ArtPrize 2012,

A mural is a really big painting. You will see them on the sides of buildings and inside on large walls and sometimes on ceilings.

 SOARING is our mural about birds flying above the fray. An expansive landscape with a curving river is seen in the background. Birds of all kinds and sizes soar over the landscape and evoke the feelings of freedom. See samples below.

This huge mural (12' x 36') will have dimension with a layered surface and 3 dimensional birds.

SOARING will be appreciated by nearly half a million people during ArtPrize. We're appealing to you because we expect this mural to cost us around $5,000 and need help to make our dream come true. Your pledge will go towards materials and paint. AND you get beautiful rewards for helping us! 

Take a look at the cool stuff we are giving away to our supporters. You'll get gifts like signed posters of the finished painting, clay bird pendants, original bird paintings, and beautiful silk scarves.
