I painted a new 3D mural at the History Colorado Center this week. This is the tenth mural I have painted for the museum. This 3D mural is a promotion for the new “Wildflower” exhibit that will come to the museum this Spring. The artwork features wildflowers that grow in Colorado and a team of hungry bees. People can pose on the artwork for photo opportunities. You can sit on the big bee in the foreground and it looks like you are flying! I create this illusion by painting on a curved wall. The mural covers the wall and the floor, allowing me to create an immersive photo opportunity.
I always have a lot of fun painting 3D murals at the History Colorado Center in Denver. I get a chance to paint in front of the museum guests and hear their feedback while I work. It’s a lot of fun to hear what the kids think about the artwork and how excited they get for the chance to pose for photos.
