I did Public Art in Florida

Last month I was invited to create public art by the City of Mulberry.  It was an amazing experience to say the least. The Abstract House (as I called the mural) is located at the Public Recreation Park and the artwork was inspired by one of my pieces that showed in my Solo Show and was the favorite among the kids.

I wanted to paint something colorful so kids were attracted to it. In the process of making it, a group of awsome kids got involved and helped me paint.  It was the must rewarding experience ever.

I painted the mural with rollers, brushes and spray paint, you can say I did mix media on a wall, and now I'm obssed with it!!!  I cant wait to do public art in the near future. 

Will I do Street Art?

I was approached by the Mulberry Center to design a Mural for some structures they have in their public park.  I already designed what I wanted to do.  Is inspired by a large piece of abstract art I did and is currently exhibited at my solo show.  The image above is a mockup I did at the beginning of the year, wishing one day I could do something similar.

I wanted to do something colorful to attract children and youth, since it will be next to a skateboard facility.  I really wish I get to do this project, so will definitely keep you posted.

By the way, If you live connected to internet, chances are you've experienced connectivity issues at some point. Most of my work is done online, so a reliable connection is a must. Recently I was trying to upload photos from my exposition at The Mulberry Center, and it took me hours to it. I called my ISP and seems that on their part everything was fine. That just meant the my home/office was the troublemaker. Ruling out the ISP, I started testing until I found out that my router was at fault. 
I went on the search for a new one. I realize I didn’t know a thing about it (MU-MIMO, Dual-Band, Tri-Band, NAS, etc.), so I enlisted my husband in the task. Skipping all the technical part, we switch to a very reliable Synology RT2600ac with a steady signal all over the place. I transfer a 1.9Gb file in under 40 seconds.  So, I'm a happy girl!!!!
