mural at my dad's coin laundry

thank you diana for all your help!

me with paintbrush in my mouth looking at the pony's behind. he's wearing socks by the way. those are not boots. i'm going to add more clothes on him later.

this was done in 2 nights. click on image for a bigger view. i have to take a break from working on it until next month when i get back from NY, SF and bali. my dad has had this coin laundry for over 20 years and he'll drive an hour every day, both ways, to make sure it's running smoothly. there were a lot of nights when an emergency would come up and he'd have to go back out to the coin laundry to take care of business in the middle of the night. i asked my dad what he thought of it and he said 'i don't know if the customers will get it. it looks like something in a bookstore. we'll have to see if the machines closer to the mural make more money. then that means the customers like it. if they don't that means they want to get away from it.' ha. the next night he seemed pleased cause he got positive reactions but he's my dad and he's the best and i think he would have liked anything i painted even if it was a piece of poop on the wall.

come on by if you need to do a load of laundry. lights. darks, big loads for big blankets.... everything!
