Early in my art career, I created an elaborate mural with Dana Irving, Famous Painters. It was a beautiful Persian dining room designed for a private residence (think Persian rug but on mansion-scale and complete with realistic birds, flowers and decorative elements). It was great experience yet not one I thought I’d repeat any time soon. I was responsible for much of the detailed work along the ground which was physically demanding. My preference became designing murals—rather than painting them. Following, I created a mural for a Vancouver children’s clothing boutique, several murals for the Saudi Arabian science and technology centre, SciTech, and a multi-story graphic design banner for a global conference. I can’t complain—I’ve had some stellar opportunities! Yet, I’d talked myself into doing just one type of mural—the one where I designed it and someone else produced it. To complicate things, my doctor recently said it may not be a good idea for me to make murals. Well, I disagreed.
