For the theme “We come in peace” my plan is to illustrate a cowboy being elevated upwards through a green beam coming from the top of the wall. The green represents the tractor beam coming from an unseen ufo. Within that beam of light would be a cartoonish illustration of all things that represent the Fraser valley. Outside of the beam in the background would be a more traditional style paintings of surrounding mountains including winter park. I spend a lot of time in Fraser area and think I can really bring a fun mural to the festival.
