A new mural has popped up recently in the city.
Bredenbury artist Mya Lauer has added some colour to the back wall of Refresh Massage Studio and Spa at 35 Smith St. W.
“I work at the spa,” said Lauer, who had done a logo art piece inside before taking on the mural.
Lauer said the idea was one she was excited to pursue.
“The owner (Lindsay O’Quinn) wanted to do something at the back to make it a little less plain – something fun,” she said.
Lauer said she asked what O’Quinn had in mind and the spa owner suggested wildflowers.
“I came up with the design after that,” said Lauer.
The actual art work took about four days, spread over a couple of two-day sessions with the final piece pleasing the artist.
“I think it turned out OK,” she said, adding that was especially true since “it was my first time doing something that big.”
With the mural under her belt, the art hobbyist said she’d certainly be up to doing more given the opportunity.
“It was a fun experience,” she said.
