The start of the mural summer kicked off this year with a great project in Worthington, MN for the 2014 Windsurfing and Unvarnished Festival. This year it was the National Championships and it was a great time throughout the entire 9 days I was there. Thanks to Gail Holinka, the VFW, and a grant thru the SMAC Arts in Legacy grant, this is what was able to be created. Also thanks to Jasmine for helping out!

Well, I have officially worked on the largest mural I have completed to date! This mammoth project was 2 years in the making and with partial funding from the National Endowment for the Arts "Our Town" grant and the remaining from the City of Wahpeton and their beautification fund, this 135ft long 35ft tall mural was completed a matter of 5 short weeks. I couldn't have done it without Lise Erdrich and Circle of Nations School for helping secure the grant, the city and also my assistants, Elaine Klocke, Caleb Schmidt, Olivia Schmidt, Sam Klocke and even my mother Karen for helping create this lasting piece in my hometown. It was such a great time creating the piece and really hope that the community enjoys it for years to come!
