I was commissioned to hand paint an 18-foot by 50-foot interior wall mural at a new building constructed by Albany RV at 48 Rensselaer Avenue in Latham, NY. The two story 8,000 square foot building features a massive indoor showroom.

The mural image is an autumn Adirondack landscape. It complements the outdoor theme of the showroom. Interior designers added depth to the wall mural with manmade 3-dimensional rocks and trees that adorn the showroom.

An acrylic mural this size required many hours of preparation. Artist Annette Gurdo assisted in painting. It took the artists eight long work days to paint. Rashford and Gurdo have teamed to offer mural painting for business and home.

Testimonials
"I would highly recommend Midair Studio. Peter painted a mural of a nature scene for me that was approximately 48'x18' and was located in Latham, NY. He was great to work with and made the process very easy from start to finish. He provided a rendering of the finished mural before he started that was very helpful. The site was challenging because there was a lot of other work going on near the mural, but Peter was flexible and worked with our schedule. The mural turned out great and the owners love it."

Peter is prompt, professional and his artistic talents are amazing! He created a masterpiece for my son's bedroom wall. His reasonable rates coupled with his astounding talents, kindness and tenacity make Peter our number one choice in the future. The Syracuse basketball player that he painted on our son's wall is something we enjoy every day and will continue to enjoy in the years to come. It is truly unique and crafted with precision and care. Everyone who sees it wants one for their own children. That is the best testimony to the fantastic artist that Peter is!
- Susan F., Homeowner

After viewing some of Peter's artistic endeavors, I had no doubt about his artistic and creative talent. I eagerly asked him to do pen and ink line drawings for my latest children's book: "Adirondack Mouse and the Great Storyteller". He provided professional quality line drawings within the agreed time limit. In addition, he created an outstanding, eye catching cover picture by combining modified photographs with his magical drawings. Peter's artistic capabilities are superb, I highly recommend him, and plan to request his talents again soon,as the illustrator of my current book in progress.
- Irene U., Children's book author

Peter Rashford is an outstanding artist. I have ordered several art pieces from him and he has fulfilled each order in a timely fashion, making sure to do each piece as requested. High quality work. I would highly recommend him.
