The St. Albert place and city hall is onto its self a work of art. There are no corners; only curves Designed by world-renowned Canadian architect Douglas Cardinal. Built in 1984 two years after I got out of highshool, I rember my frist time going there it was with my dad, and visiting the new library, I remember being so impresed and proud to have this building in my home town.

This is by far the most important panel in the mural, with out this panel the whole mural will falls apart, the composition depends on this piece, this is the piece that your eye will constantly go to, and this is the piece that ties all other piece together.
Oh did I mention being 2012 this is the piece that will probably bring the end of the world if not done right.... truth be known I look at every painting this way, asked my wife what its like living with me.
Since we are now unveiling the mural at the children's festival I thought this could be one of the panel that celebrates this awesome festival, I did a number of drawing, the one i choose was a figure wearing the children's fest logo, plus this one worked best with the shape on the board .
Because this board was going to get allot of attention I wanted to use my brother Paul as the model, being the unsung, shy guy of muralmosic, and honor him for all he dose with the murals. plus he's the only guy here.
finished painting, "I have him wearing a burger king hat if your wondering"

this was the first image i pick because of the name of the school (Leo) later I thought the wizard of Oz caricatures, the lion stands for "Courage" the tin man stands for "heart" which this school has tons of, and the scarecrow stands for wisdom or "knowledge"
