South Sound Connection (SSC) LIVE 007 with Mindy Barker - Tacoma Murals
"Every project I complete is a study in the complexity, depth, psychology of color and how to manage, mimic and manipulate it. Whether it is a straightforward faux finish, a complex trompe l’oeil scene, or my original artwork, the color becomes the central character that leads every project adventure.
