painting by shayla garland
the process of...
in some far corner of the earth
giant space love

the guide within: a meditation
not the process, but the final product, of my 2013 class banner as an example of custom mural work.
took a weekend, painted some lake & loons at the cottage.
i wanted to integrate realism and native canadian-inspired stylization as i appreciate the natural beauty of the great canadian lake, as well as connotate native canadian values (and thus art) with a sincere connection to nature. and cottage time is synonymous with nature-connection time. after a night of pondering the concept and layout with the help of a small amount of spiced whisky, i got to work. thanks to mi papa for the scaffolding and the honour/opportunity to paint some large amount of wall, and thanks to philippe for editing the video above!
