Mural Enhancement in Leesburg, Virginia

Recently I had the enjoyment of painting enhancements to a residential mural in Leesburg.

Jumping Whale and Dolphins, Sea Turtles. More mural progress.

Painting upside down is a real workout! I hope Michelangelo had a really good chiropractor when he painted the Sistine Chapel. Today I started on the underside of the mural that I’m painting in a townhouse studio in Ashburn, while also painting in jumping whales and dolphins, a sea turtle, and colorful sea fish!
