Movable Murals

One favorite murals to make (the collaboration with the clients) was one for a friend who left science to go into the coffee house biz. My friend needed something that was unique and had a feeling of being old. She and her husband lived in Santa Paula, they called their coffee house the Santa Paula Coffee House.

The area is beautiful with mountains, trees, and framing. So, she wanted mountains, trees, farms, and coffee beans, all in a Craftsman style. Sounded like one of those wonderful orange crates from the turn of the 20th Century... With lots of ideas back and forth over the internet we came to a design, pallet of colors and style.

Lettering is always a bitch... but they wanted something homey....

Here it is at the opening of the shop....
