Mural for Water Conservation

I was commissioned by Portland Store Fixtures to paint a mural that would "make people think about local impact on water pollution and conservation".  There are four 4x8 panels each depicting a different ecosystem found here in Oregon: wetlands, rain forest, agricultural land, and the coast. Haiku's by local poet Annie Herring are on 3 of the 4 panels, and around each one in a tone-on-tone technique are statistics and factoids about water-  its vital impact on our daily lives and in turn how our daily lives impact the environment. Water is the only element necessary to the survival of all life on this planet.  The mural is installed in SE Portland near the Eastbank Esplanade. You can see more pictures of the installation here.  Click on images below to enlarge.
