Mott Library Mural
During the fall semester of 2019, I designed and painted a mural with a fellow classmate Danielle Tice. We painted it in a small room in the Library at Mott Community College. The room is going to be a space dedicated for families to enjoy. I have always wanted to paint a mural at least once. I finally received that opportunity my last semester there. I really enjoyed it and am happy to share it with you.

Creative Journey of a Mural
This is the main palette we decided to use for the piece.
We individually created our own mural designs before working together. This was mine.
This is the first design of the landscape I did.
Danielle did her own mock up to add the changes we needed for the design.
This day we sketched out the design on the wall.
Danielle is the one in the front taking the picture. I am the one behind her.
Here we have laid down some paint.
A celebratory selfie to document the progress we've made.
At this point it felt really nice to see everything covered.
This is us at the end of day 1, exhausted, but very satisfied with our progress.
Here we worked on adding details to the grass, bluebell field, and clouds.

Feeling very tired but satisfied with our work.
