Mural for Casa Quinchon in Tegucigalpa

Last week I create a mural for Casa Quinchon and Connect CoWork in Tegucigalpa.  Here's a 2 minute time-lapse of the painting process. 

2-minute TimeLapse video by Honduran visual artist: Helga Sierra Commissioned Mural for Connect CoWork and Casa Quinchon in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Casa Quinchon is a new creative endeavor in Honduras promoting collaboration for entrepreneurs and creatives. The commissioned mural is inspired by my original painting "Constant in The Rain: which you can view here: -- bit.ly/2ku6vvE Video production and edits are original.

The mural is inspired by another painting I created in the Spring of 2017: Constant in the Rain. The colors were modified to fit the brighter color scheme that is a part of Casa Quinchon.

I maintained the original elements of the composition: the 3 white lines, while modifying the colors to make it seam less dark.  Casa Quinchon is a collaborative work-space so the colors chosen were to communicate energy.   

Emulating rain drops, the mural features several "washes" to give this sensation. 

The original inspiration came to me, as I finished a work out on a rainy night in Tegucigalpa.  I was at a point in my life where everyday seemed to be different, some days were happy, others were not; yet even in the most difficult moments, God showed me He will never leaves me and is working through and around me, many times in ways I can't control.  Constant in the Rain, is a reference to a moment, where the rain drops fee (as I saw the workout equipment -red and yellow-) and was reminded that my worries or happiness can change daily, but God is constant and it is because of Him that I can have joy.  A year after painting the original I can still say I believe this is true.
