J.R. Smith says, ” I would like to reach designers that are decorating lobbies, entryways and restaurants, etc. I’m getting more calls for mural panels or themed type series that are appropriate for their venue. “
The artist recently completed a series of Cinco de Mayo paintings of dancers and musicians in his characteristic *feel good* style. There were some delays, according to the artist who stated that, “restoring the sign on the west End of the Wool & Mohair building (in Alpine ,Texas ) slowed the completion of the Cinco de Mayo series
but the paintings are now hanging in Los Jalapenos Restaurant on Murphy Street. The Murphy Street weekend festivities will kick off with a reception for the show on Thursday the 29th, August (5:00 – 7:00 PM) at Los Jalapenos.”
