This mural is meant to connect the two Ithacas: in Greece and New York. Imagery is drawn from the Odyssey, referenced in the books in the central panel. People seek both Ithacas for knowledge and beauty.
The two creatures in the side panels are also drawn from Greek mythology. On the left is the god Pan, a satyr who is all about music, fun, joy and playfulness. The Sphinx on the right represents knowledge, and you're not going to get by her without answering the riddle!
Painted on the parking garage on Cayuga St, for the 2010 Art in the Heart grant. Central panel is 8' x 4', and the side panels are 2' x 4'.

The theme of the piece is buying locally. The first panel shows the farmer's fields in early spring, with a biker in the distant background, along with a windmill. In the second panel, the farmers are harvesting the fields with the biker in the middle ground. The third panel shows the biker at the Ithaca Farmers' Market purchasing the local produce. This mural is even more meaningful for this space since the first IFM was on the Commons.
Speaking of the Ithaca Farmers' Market, you can find me there many Saturdays in booth 85.

This is a typical Ithaca landscape with a little whimsy. I wanted to paint something unexpected for the viewer, to put a smile on peoples' faces when they drive by. This was paid for by a CAP II grant.
Here's the whole mural:

This is my mural, on an 80' x 30' wall, on the the Bang's Ambulance building in downtown Ithaca, painted for the Alternatives Federal Credit Union in 2004. Painted with exterior Benjamin Moore paints in 2004.
