The mural I painted along the Rail Trail is called “NY State Wallpaper.” The work is intended to brighten up the bridge and give community members a nice splash of color during their daily activity through the trail. The design is a conglomeration of New York state flora and fauna stencils, painted on a variety of colorful wallpaper-esque designs. The stencils include beavers, pine trees, flowers, deer, and squirrels amongst others. In between each color pattern, I used a shadow to indicate depth and give it a 3D feel. I painted the mural with spray paint to extend the life of the work and painted around 30 or so panels. I am very grateful to the Rail Trail Committee and am happy to have been able to bring my work to the community.
