Above and Beyond - Colleen Gnos

As an artist who enjoys painting large, this year I was awarded the commission to paint murals on the Avila Beach Lifeguard towers. I enjoy working with the community, and for this project I held a workshop where anyone could come to my studio and paint with me by laying in the base colors on the panels for the lifeguard towers. I will be working on these for the next couple months and will be displaying them “in progress” at my studio during the Open Studios Art Tour. I would love for everyone to come by and see them during the tour, as well as check out my jazz-infused and mermaid art that will be on display.  I'm at catalog location #87, facebook, and website.
