I was invited by the chART organization to paint a mural in Charleston, SC this past weekend as part of one of their great events celebrating public art. I was originally going to paint just one mural over 2 days but once i got the hang of it, I worked pretty quickly and finished one in a day. Geoff Richardson, the leader of the event, offered another space to paint the next day.
It was fun working on a new surface and at a large scale. I brought headphones to listen to music but found it better to listen to the sounds of the hustle and bustle of the area. That was an unexpected perk of working outside in a public space. I had lots of people stop and ask questions and some old friends and students came by to say hello.
