Red Fox Mini-mural on a Jersey Barrier
I was invited to join a really cool art project through the Amherst Business Improvement District, with the pandemic there’s been a need to separate outdoor dining spaces from the road, and it can be an ugly prospect to have so many Jersey barriers! enter in artists!
I was one of a group of artists who took on the challenge of beautifying the space.
We had three hours total to prime and paint, it was quite the challenge! I was also given 24 hours notice! I ran to the store and estimated what supplies we would need, stayed up that night, came up with a design and enlisted volunteer help from my friends Megan and Will because no way was I going to do it alone!
We came early and primed first thing with a cement primer. Then the painting began!
It came together really quickly and we were very proud of the end result. I had drawn out and created vinyl stencils for the butterflies which sped things along a bit! It can be seen in front of Oriental Flavor in Amherst as of July 2020.
This was my first foray into public art and I really enjoyed it!
You can see the butterflies just bleeding out of the painting =)
This same fox was featured in the painting I did for CoSM
