PATRIOTIC MURAL FOR BILL
It was blazing hot August when I secured a contract to paint my first wall on Main Street. Bill, owner of Elite Bonding, shook my sweaty hand and I spent the next week painting and guzzling free Mountain Dew from Main Street Liquor, only a short crawl from Bill's.
A few months earlier, Bill approached me while I was working on the Dragon mural on Douglas Ave. He said he wanted something really BIG and BOLD on the side of his shop so people would know what to look for from the road. I didn't have any other help from him on what he wanted, so I hit up his website to see if anything would guide me... and BINGO! Bill is a former US Marine! I instantly decided on a patriotic theme and dove into my pinterest tattoo boards. The eagle with wide wings was a perfect fit for a deep one-story building. Bill loved my ideas and gave me the go ahead on this coveted wall on Main Street. Unfortunately, there was no way to know that my Eagle would only be temporary. . .
