This is a commissioned mural in a new home in Skokie, IL. It descends a staircase and is on the ceiling. The inspiration for the mural came from a collection of ideas and images special to the home owners.
As I painted, a story emerged. It is the story of a lonely unicorn who comes across a magical spring. When he leans down to drink, he finds that there is a whole other world on the other side of the water. A world filled with beings just as magical as he.
I am going to title it “Magic Spring”. It make me think of the “Through the Looking Glass” concept.
I am available for commissioned murals in your home as well. Prices start from $600.
Honey Bees are often Mis-Represented in Arthttps://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ryanfalenlee/rivendell-apiaries
I am so honored to have gotten to work with Ryan on this project. Watch this video to see a 30 second stop animation of Ms Anna creating the beautiful hive painting. Though it wasn’t planned, Ms Anna’s Mother Heron totem makes an appearance at the beginning of the video. Please watch the whole video to see and hear about Ryan’s work to create natural homes for Honey Bees throughout the Chicagoland area. While his project received full funding in just a few days of his kickstarter, Ryan can use more funding for even bigger visions for the bees. Some of his visions include an official bee park and garden within the city. More of his kickstarter can be found online https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ryanfalenlee/rivendell-apiaries
