restaurant entrance mural

Magnolia Restaurant in Myrtle Beach, still under construction. The cook makes the best cornbread muffins I've ever tasted.

This is in the front foyer next to the front door. I had to get them to move a fire alarm to another wall, but couldn't get them to move the outlet. Why in the world would they need an outlet THERE????

Comments welcome!

Ruth

Re: restaurant entrance mural

Ruth, it's fantastic...a wonderfully comfortable feel in your style. It's great that you got them to move the fire alarm...but they better not set up a table with a lamp and use that plug. LOL!

Re: restaurant entrance mural

Thank you Valorie! I run into this "problem" everywhere. I don't know why builders and electricians can't leave a nice wall alone!

Hey... really good looking Ruth!

Get them to buy one of those nightlight covers that are made out of sea shells and the plug will have a purpose.

Re: restaurant entrance mural

Wonderful once again! Your work is always great!

Out of curiosity, how do you get your restaurant commissions...just from referral, or advertisement, or do you drop cards or brochures? I have only had one restaurant job and it was for faux finish, not mural work. They actually called from my newspaper ad, although most of my work is by referral. Just curious, cause I was thinking of dropping off some cards or brochures at a couple local places with a proposal/ideas to go with their theme.

Ruth

What I want to know is when you do these murals for all these restaurants, do they give you free meals? If so, will you hire me as your assistant?

Re: restaurant entrance mural

Maybe free cornbread muffins? This is beautiful, as usual, Ruth. Did you see the article Olan posted on Eric Henn and the aquarium murals. Really interesting reading.

Thanks for showing us your art. You are my inspiration.

Re: restaurant entrance mural

just found this post and in answer to the question about the outlet. places have different codes but where I am from, any wall length of 4 feed has to have an outlet; to help prevent the use of extension cords.
it looks as if they could have moved it to one side or the other but didn't want to bother-depends on how it was originally wired and if they wanted to bother. Doesn't matter, the wall looks terrific!!

Re: restaurant entrance mural

Beautiful job! Im about to start working on a similar project. I have to revive faded murals (outdoor). My question - which medium is the best to use? Thanks

Re: restaurant entrance mural

Ruth, Very lovely. I like the idea of being fed on the job! I know I have had some great Hushpuppies in Myrtle Beach. I just paint over those switchplates, if possible. Pat

Re: restaurant entrance mural

It's always nice to see these old posts pop back up. This one was from 2004. Ruth has always been amazing.
