trompe l'oeil muralTrompe L'oeil literally means "trick of the eye" in French. This painting I did in a very small hallway with two sets of French doors on either side. The client wanted the effect of an outdoor patio overlooking a garden. Although the client's decor was French and Jeffersonian I ended up borrowing from English and Italian gardens for the composition.  
Zoo Rain Forest Mural This space was commissioned by the Tulsa Zoo and The Nature Conservancy to raise funds to conserve rainforest in Belize, Central America. Zoo patrons placed coins in the parking meter. The colored carpet sections indicate how much rain forest is saved for each coin. Very fun idea to help increase awareness.

Close-up of a mural for a corporate dinner party. The painting is free-standing (12 feet by 16 feet) and was designed to fit under a stairway as the guests came in. The guests enjoyed appetizers provided on a small table in front of the mural. Note: the table cloth pattern was no accident! The client had picked out the pattern for the actual dinner and wanted the mural tables to match. (see Chateau painting for settings)

German Restaurant Mural - Neuschwanstein's Castle (6 x 16 feet). This was painted for a German Deli Restaurant with a very narrow side room. By adding a mural the atmosphere of the room was completely changed. The room now feels more spacious and relaxing.
Italian Town & River The owner was not sure what he wanted so we spent a lot of time beforehand just looking through travel books of Italy. This one struck both of us. I transfered the image to the wall, added some countryside, and viola! The edging was created by using the original green wall paint and "fading" the mural into the wall.

French Chateau - The Tulsa Philharmonic hosted a fundraiser and commissioned this mural. The theme was French pastoral. Here a chateau with sheep is the backdrop for the dinning area. The actual tablecloth pattern was used in the Picnic mural.
