“Roses and Hearts on the Blue Sky” – The mural of my painting was installed on the façade of Marquee building - 901 Main Street, Houston, TX - from July 1 through October 15, 2016, as part of the Art Blocks at Main Street Square project. The size of the installation: 20 x 40 feet.
My intention with this work was to bring peace and happiness to Houston and particularly this site with the jubilant, vibrant and attention-grabbing flower composition.
From the observation of a Houston viewer, the brightly colored flower compositions would strongly influence their mood in a positive way –bring joy, an elevated outlook, enhance the vitality, and offer a hint of perception on the international societies and their customs and traditions.
While it was on display, I feel my work enhanced the diversity, connectivity, liveliness, and vigor of Downtown Houston.
Four artists, including me, were selected for this rotating mural project, three months each.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
