Making a Mural, Starting with a Pool

Of his artistic process, mural artist James Bullough says, “Every wall is a slightly different process…I normally start with the dark areas and work toward the light areas and just kind of move like a printer from one section of the painting all the way down.” Read more about the mural, and parts one and two of a larger interview with Bullough.

Via Instagrammer @theclarelife: “Once or twice a week I drop everything to go to the woods or an art museum. A personal development day. It’s a time to wander the world without agenda and immerse my senses. I leave with fresh eyes and ears. How do you guys drop into yourselves in new ways?”
