"Concerts In The Plaza"
16" x 20" - mixed media on wood

This painting was commissioned by The Downtown Association of San Luis Obispo in 2011. The image was used to promote their "Concerts In The Plaza" event that they put on every summer. The criteria for the illustration was that the following three things need to be in the painting:

1. Mission San Luis Obispo De Toloso
2. Music
3. Movement

The first two I think I made pretty obvious. For "movement" I had a pretty loose interpretation. Previous artists painted people dancing for movement. The whimsical lines coming off the character's elbow and the violin were my "movement", along with the purple "burst" behind the cross.

During the summer of 2011 this poster could be seen in the window of practically every downtown business. In the third photo I'm sitting in front of an enlarged version of the poster that was directly across the street from Mission Plaza, where the concerts take place every Friday during summer.

This is a one of a kind original painting on wood. The edges have been painted black and the surface has been coated with a thick layer of clear plastic resin. The resin coating provides a protective high gloss finish. It basically looks like a yummy piece of shiny candy.

Wire has been attached to the back so this is ready to hang right out of the package.

If you live in or around SLO and would like to avoid the shipping cost you are welcome to come by my studio to pick this up. Unfortunately, I don't think there is a way on this site to skip the shipping cost, so you will be charged shipping during checkout and I will gladly reimburse you when come to the studio. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to send me a message.

If you are not going to pick this up I will ship this via UPS.

Thanks for looking!
