Beds for Brushes an Artist in Residence Program
A few years ago a young artist from San Francisco, California, was visiting Casa Hamaca Guesthouse along with his wife. We chatted about art, specifically about murals since there are 15 murals in the casa. After Matt Christensen returned home he wrote me and asked if I would be interested in another mural. I responded "yes" and offered a room for him and his wife along with breakfast and lunch for the duration of the project.
The mural in limbo until Jan 2016
The Plan for a Collaborative Mural Began to take Shape
I envisioned nine different artists would each complete a segement of the mural following Matt's design but putting their own spin on it. That would make the finished mural the work of 10 different designers/artists/muralists.

What at first looked like fish turned out to be serpents...serpents of the day and of the night.
