Stellar Grade School Mural Magic
SPRINGFIELD SHAREFEST 2013!!! This year, I had the joy of coming up with a design and painting something in the library of McClernand Middle School in Springfield, IL. The room had very interesting architecture and a big 5′(h) bulkhead wrapping around the entire room that was already painted a nice dark blue and since the school mascot is the McClernand Stars, painting a vast, cloudy outer space mural was a pretty easy decision. I was fortunate enough to have my sister, Christy Freeman and the art education coordinator for the Springfield Art Assn, Erin Svendsen to help me out with this one. No way I could have gotten this done in 3 day without them.
The mural was painted with a mix of brush techniques and all the clouds and star fields done with spray paint.
