While painting the mural, an elderly lady approached me and told me how she and her husband just returned from Europe where they noticed large amounts of murals all over the countries they visited. She continued to tell me how beautiful they were and how much they added to the urban landscape. She thanked me for adding color to the predominantly blank and conservative walls of Carlsbad. She even asked me who she needs to contact to request more murals in Carlsbad. I gave her a long list of city elected council and board members! My ultimate goal for the past 4 years has been to develop more of an artistic culture in Carlsbad through color and community… and things are really beginning to shift!
Hope you enjoy!
