The phases of the moon adorn the branches of the tree, which portray the seasons of the earth. If you look closely , the wintry branches are made with flashed glass. Flashed glass is a process where colored glass is introduced to molten glass and the two pieces meld and become one. Then the glass is masked off in the areas to keep the color, and the glass is sand blasted to reveal the white wintry branch.
An American Dream , a brilliant golden field of grain being harvested. The American Flag, the church , the constitution. These are the things the client of this mural wanted me to convey to the viewer. A Proud Community. This is a mural painting size of 8'x15' located in a small rural farming town in Michigan. Designed and painted by the artist. ( myself)
