Last summer I painted a local brewery’s logo on their wall and as soon as I was finished, people began to take selfies with the logo. These photos end up on social media and make great advertising for the client and me.

The first Walldog event that I attended was in 1997, in Belvidere, Illinois and I try to attend one every summer. These events have been a resource to learn new painting techniques and styles. It is also a fun time to hang out with my art family. It has been an honor to serve as a project leader at several events over the years. Currently we are in the beginning phase of holding a Walldog event here in Paducah in 2021. I am looking forward to that. They are always a lot of fun.
