I wanted to paint a mural at this location for several months. I loved the restaurant and noticed that the mural that had been there for years was painted over white. I had a show at the Brian Marki gallery and felt confident that I would be the best artist for this wall. Ben and I were having breakfast there one day and I asked the waiter who I would talk to about painting a mural on the wall. He said, "me". I showed him one of my paintings on my phone. He took it to the kitchen to show the owner, came out two minutes later and said, "We like you. You can paint the mural."  It was being at the right place at the right time and having the right subject matter or my art. Bit of Country restaurant is located at 418 S Indian Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, CA 92262 and is open for 7am to 2pm everyday.
