Ellis Drum Shop page

The theme is borrowed from the Parthenon frieze, but I have subsituted the urns carried in procession with colorful drums.

This mural was painted with oils over a steel garage door.

Ellis Drum shop is where several of my interests converged. Art of course,  painting murals inside and outside the store; Drums, as this encounter has reacquainted me with playing the drums after a hiatus of many years; and soccer, because in the process of doing the murals I learned that the owner, Tim Ellis, played soccer so I recruited him as goalie for my coed soccer team. And since Ellis Drum Shop fabricates their own unique line of drums in addition the other new and used inventory, I have created a number of original hand painted snare drums and full drum kits for them.
