lyrical painting

i painted some lovely ben harper song lyrics on the wall of the bloume baby store in manhattan beach. the lyrics are hand painted in modern white on a deep chocolate background with little leaves to mirror bloume baby's logo. and thanks to a great idea from a friend of mine, i decided to use felt and patterned fabric to make the leaves dimensional. i love the textural touch the fabric leaves add to the letters and the natural feel of the mural next to the fabulous birch tree wallpaper in the store. perfect.
