Children's Reading Room

Grant Funded
Located in the Somerville Public Library - Somerville, MA

The inspiration for this mural came from things that children learn from books.  On the main wall of the mural there are dinosaurs, fish, frogs, castles and storybook characters.  Prehistory, nature and fantasy are depicted throughout the room.

This was my first big public mural.  It was a wonderful experience.  Each day groups of children would come in and watch the progress of the mural.  Some children would color as I painted.  Some would question every brushstroke and others would come in just to "hang out" with an artist.  It was very rewarding.
