SUNRISE Wall Mural for LINKS Costa Mesa

Drew Brophy sunrise mural art painting for Links in costa mesa californiaLast month Drew painted two murals back-to-back.  It’s funny, when it rains it pours…it all happened at once.

The first mural Drew painted was for Yogurt Wave, and you can read about by clicking on the link.

The second was for a company called LINKS in Costa Mesa, CA.  Our contact there, Tom, loved Drew’s painting called SUNRISE.  He’s also an avid fisherman.  So he wanted the mural to incorporate SUNRISE and fish somehow.  Drew pulled it off nicely.

Tom also wanted the wall adjacent to the mural to have a nice faux finish that would compliment the artwork.  And there are beams in the room that he asked Drew to paint to look like a big cross.  Check out the photos to see how it all turned out, below.

After all this, I wrote a piece on my blog called PAINTING A WALL MURAL – TEN WAYS TO PLEASE YOUR CLIENT.  The article is based on what I learned by watching Drew handle his mural painting and his clients.  In the end, Tom was very very happy.  And so were we!
