I started doing murals for Great Harvest Bread early in my career as a muralist. My first one was for Farmington Hills, Michigan, then I did one in Nashville, Minneapolis and Fargo. Unfortunately, I don’t have very good photos of any of them except Minneapolis because I went back to visit it several years later. The Farmington Hills mural was a massive 50 foot long mural on canvas that hung from the ceiling over the production area. I also did a redesign of the bread store as part of the project. Sales went up dramatically after the store redesign and as word traveled around through the bread store owners, I was hired to reorganize several stores and to do many more murals. Here are a few of them.
FARMINGTON HILLS, MICHIGAN (only have this one detail photo left)
This Great Harvest Bread Store is near the four lakes of Minneapolis and wanted a mural that depicted the year round activities of their area. I walked the four lakes and made sketches of how the area would look from a bird’s eye view. The mural is accurate down to the smallest detail and covers all four seasons.
