Case Study: Interior Mural, Jupiter Foods Petaluma
Problem: Create an interior mural that embodied the spirit and values of Jupiter Foods, a socially responsible grocer in Petaluma, CA.
Solution: I developed a design for a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables in a mandala shape, to fit over a window (and future cash register).

- Jupiter Foods
- Owner: Dan Bleakey-Formby
I develop concept sketches and color studies until the client is happy with the design.
Painting in Place
It's rare that I get to paint actual murals on walls anymore. This one was straightforward and satisfying.
This phase is simply about laying in color, and on-the-spot mixing of paints.
The Fun Part
Once all the base shapes are in, the fun part starts: rendering! Using a variety of brush techniques (and loud tunes in the AirPods), I add dimensions that give the mural life.
A happy client, a fresh dose of color in the space, and plenty of grapes!
