Quick pencil sketch on tracing paper for a mural/room divider I painted for the Hotel DeAnza’s breakfast room on the second floor. San Jose, California. Quite a few years ago. – the color photo is a color copy of an original photo i have somewhere, cannot locate it just yet. 😉

Just a few snaps of a mural, trompe l’oeil painting I made years ago for a decorator working on the interior of a luxury hotel in Kirkland, WA. – This one one of the penthouse suites that had 2 hidden closets behind my paintings. Literally had about 2.5 days to complete both and move on to the next. Fun times.

Old project in my old studio out on Yosemite street in the San Francisco Bay View area. – I bought up a ton of oval wooden boxes and painted the outside. (and inside) – Here they are, on my table in the studio. ~>

A few other studio shots. I was working on an acrylic painting, on canvas.
The shot below was taken on an open studio day. Not sure what year.

When I had a painting and design business years ago I would draw designs out on velum or thin tracing paper and then transfer the image on to a canvas or wall – whatever surface it was painted on. I sometimes used transfer paper or rubbed graphite on the back of the drawing and then re-traced the image.
This is what other panels of the paintings looked liked in progress. The color images were scanned from older color prints. Pre-digital cameras.
