location. Dustin Office Machines, Gainesville, TX

story.     Thank you to Johnny and Mary Lou Leftwich for the opportunity to paint this mural on the side of their business! I admire their commitment to               Gainesville and vision to better the community through the years. And I was honored to add a little something to downtown as part of this                   vision. The conversation started with Mr. Leftwich saying "I want a big American flag and it to say In God we Trust"...and this is the design I               came up with.

             I titled this mural "Movement" for a double meaning approach. The folds in the fabric and billowing banner evoke movement. But I also                     hope the mural can speak to everyone. We, as a nation, are in constant movement. As I try to be the ever optimist, I see movement towards               improvement, towards daring to embrace change as good and sought after. I hope that as the community changes and grows, we all see                   where our individual uniqueness and contributions are an important part of the Movement.
