If you’ve visited CACi Wood-Fired Sicilian Grill in Eagle lately, you’ve probably noticed the colorful mural on the back wall. The mural is the collaborative work of local Eagle artist Steve Humke, and Meridian artist Joyce Green.
Humke still frequently chooses to work with others. “When I took on the CACi project, I knew it would be better working with another artist. Creating a team seems to bring better results, with strengths and weaknesses complimenting each other,” Humke said. His partner on the 7 by 16 foot CACi mural, watercolorist Joyce Green, worked alongside him to add important portrait-like details which made the eleven characters in the mural more appealing. “Joyce added expressions with her paint brush quickly and naturally, while I easily developed the large areas with my airbrush. Our work complimented each other.
