Table Mesa King Soopers Mural

I was honored to paint the fine art mural hanging in the front entryway of King Soopers and contributing to the healing of my community and to the place that saw so much pain. Art has the power to bring beauty, hope, comfort, and a feeling of welcoming to returning neighbors.

 

“A New Day” evokes renewal, inspiration, peace, safety, and joy. Lael's aspiration is to bring a sense of light into our everyday. This painting captures the essence of Boulder's natural environment: a magical place filled with the sounds of birds and running water where you can stand among the trees celebrating a spirit of togetherness, community, healing, and hope.
