Camouflage Mural adds Grit to Company Gym

Friday, January 12th, 2018

I enjoyed my time this past December working at the Wetlands Studies and Solutions office in Gainesville, VA. From what I was able to learn in my short time there- these guys do great work… and they are equally passionate about working out!

Step 1: was priming the entire cinder block wall. I was fortunate to be able to use a scissor lift in this space, rather than traditional scaffolding which takes a lot more energy to climb up and down.

Due to the nature of the aerial lift, I worked in 7-foot columns, finishing a vertical section before moving the scissor lift- this proved pretty efficient.

My view from the top!…

The end result was a fun, camouflage wall- ideal for a company that actually uses duck blinds and waiters in their daily work and studies. I’m sure it will inspire future boot camps as well!…

While we’re on the subject of camouflage, check out the Florida Gator blue & orange camouflage room I painted a few years back!:

School Spirit

I thought in honor of that Back-to-School time of year and the onset of fall- a SPECTACULAR season to live in Virginia…. I’d highlight some of my previous school mural projects.

Most recently, I completed this Success Pyramid for Lakeridge Middle School in Lakeridge, VA. What an inspiring wall for all these young athletes!

Next, is the cafeteria stage at Baldwin Elementary School in Manassas, VA.

This was painted during the summer, so needless to say there was a lot going on- it was difficult to get a good picture!

For Stone Hill Middle School in Ashburn, VA, I painted their Stingray mascot to label the various areas in the hallway.

The gymnasium mural at Sycolin Creek Elementary in Leesburg, VA proved a little more challenging due to the acoustic boards that surrounded the gym.

For Congressional Schools of Virginia, I keep adding to the mural in the reception area. Here’s a before and after of the front desk area- showing the outside of the Early Childhood Program building.

Lastly, I had the privilege of painting the Senior Cafe at Mount Vernon High School in Alexandria, VA. It was a gift from the class of 2012. You can see from the before and after pictures- this added some much-needed color and excitement to the Senior-only area… afterall, they worked hard to be there!
