Started March 9th – Operation Vermeer Tunnel (Chico Mendes Tunnel) updates located in my blog.
Delft is in dire need of an artistic makeover due to a large number of neglected or just plain boring walls.
As many are aware, getting permission and/or funding is where the challenge lies past the vision. Luckily, I love a challenge. This page will be updated with more information as it arises.
Examples/Ideas – Lucy Paints Delft – Online album featuring inspirations, mockups, previous range of commissions/works.
Sun and Mist Study – Lighting is everything. 5:52 minutes of serene compositions of light and shadows; many of which would be a treat to paint in a large scale interpretation.

Tests and experiments are critical to my development as a painter. Here is my test of what a landscape mural turns out like when painted quickly using leftover paint. The color “chrome” (oddly enough) ended up being the favorite unexpected shiny hero in this one.
Normally I paint painstakingly slow with a great deal of attention focused on details and exact colors, but I was already doing that on a large project during the week so it felt great to do the opposite here. That, my friends, is how we grow. A simple mural also has merits.
