Village Kitchen Restaurant
Ann Arbor, Michigan

There are actually two murals in this restaurant on North Maple in Ann Arbor, but most people only remember this one--
a whimsical depiction of Main Street Ann Arbor.

The Restaurant had a lighted sign in the middle of the wall (shown below) that had to remain, so
choosing to do a rendering of Main Street in the middle of the road, allowed for the best
showing of the buildings with a balance on both sides. Because the neon cast a glow on the entire
painting, I chose to rendering the street as through it had just had a summer rainfall and the early evening
street lights reflected themselves in the pavement and sidewalks.
