When a local artist took time out from her busy career as an art director to create a mural in front of her apartment building, it was clear that she was going to have to be creative.
The piece is titled “The Uninvited Guest,” and it was created by muralist Sarah Schmoe, who is based in Portland, Oregon.
It is an interactive mural, which means that it shows a viewer what the building is like from the inside.
It is meant to illustrate the idea that, “If we do something wrong, we are not welcome,” Schmoes said.
“The Unvowed Guest” is a project that has been on the backburner for months.
She said she got tired of having to make the mural and realized she could make it on her own.
She wanted to make it as natural as possible so the mural would be in front the same apartment building where her daughter lives.
The mural, she said, has been sitting in her apartment for a couple months and was not moving in.
So she took the mural to her apartment, got a few hours of sleep and began the process of painting.
The result is a beautiful, organic mural that Schmodes a young artist and painter with a love of nature.
Schmoe said she wants to do the mural because she loves nature and wanted to bring people into the world, even if it was to just be in the background.
“It’s just a way to bring it out and not only make the environment look good but also to create some sense of presence,” Schmetos said.
“It’s like being on the beach and looking down at the ocean and seeing how it looks, and I love that about it.”
Schmoes and her husband, Michael, are the parents of two young children.
Schmode said they have not seen their son grow up, but they have a dream that their son will someday play soccer at the same time as his daughter.
The Schmoses, who are both artists, are also interested in finding ways to use their artistic talents in the future.
Schmetos is planning to create more art in the coming years.
“I’m trying to take more time off,” Schmsoe said.
“[My husband] loves painting.
And if I do something I want to do that’s not always in front my daughter, that’s just something I’m passionate about.
I just want to make art that inspires people.”
