A BLANK CANVAS

Body
Mel Eason, owner of Joy Brush Signs, recently completed her mural on the side of the Edward Jones building in downtown Sealy after seven days of work. Based out of Houston, Eason said it was the most time she had spent in Sealy although her parents live in Bellville so she wasn’t unfamiliar with Austin County. Erin Krampitz Designs contacted Joy Brush Signs and brought her out to a blank canvas to do with what she pleased. Eason built off inspiration she got while picking out a bouquet of flowers and went to work.
