MAR Mural

Hey guys...

Last week, I completed two murals for a new restaurant that will be opening here in Decatur, called MAR. Mar is cited as being "coastal Mexican food, with a tequila tasting room"... sounds delicious to me (Mexican is my favorite type of food. If I had to only eat Mexican food for the rest of my life, I'm pretty sure that'd be fine with me. And, MAR is coastal Mexican, so there is a lot of fish on the menu, and I don't eat any meat except fish, so it's perfect there, for me, too! Can't wait to try it out when it opens in a few weeks)

Anyway, I was in charge of two murals, one on the side of the big white building, and one on the front. Here is a picture that the owner snapped while I was positioning the projector for tracing the logo:

As you can see, it was pretty high up (I was standing on a flower bed that is about one foot off the ground here). I traced the image in the evening, then painted it during the day. One of the days that I worked was really cold and rainy out - not ideal! :)

Getting started the next day:

  5. Debe tener en cuenta que no todos los bolsos baratos disponibles en el mercado están hechos con material de la mejor calidad. Ciertos fabricantes se comprometen con la calidad de los productos, para ofrecerlos a precios bajos. (etiquetas: Bolsos Michael Kors,Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos,Bolsos Michael Kors Outlet)

    Dessa grossister kommer också att erbjuda dig ett brett utbud av alternativ att välja mellan, med avseende på färg, storlek, material och design. Dessutom kan du även få dem skräddarsydda, genom att komma med en handväskedesign på egen hand. (Taggar: Väska Michael Kors,MK Väska,Michael Kors Rea)

    Si vous vous assurez que les sacs à main bon marché que vous achetez sont fabriqués par un fabricant réputé, à partir de matériaux de la meilleure qualité, vous pouvez être certain qu’ils dureront longtemps. Les femmes dans le monde d'aujourd'hui ont besoin de transporter beaucoup de choses avec elles, où qu'elles aillent. (Mots clés: Sac Longchamp Pas Cher,Sac Longchamp Solde,Sac Longchamp Pas Cher)
