I painted this creek scene landscape along a 75′ long retaining wall at the rennovated home of Mary and Kent Gustafson. Their family spends their summers in the cabin Kent went to as a boy, where he would fish in the creek that runs alongside. This is a sacred place to their family, where they spend time relaxing outside of their busy lives. They gained a large, beautiful subterranean living space from the remodel, but the windows looked out onto a plain stucco wall. Now, with their new murals, they can jog (on their treadmill) along the creek scene I have painted, and be reminded of one of the places that makes them happiest. And yes, I did stock the stream with trout.
