Charleston Pour House Mural Competition..."Metamorphosis of a Song" by Michele Levani
The Charleston Pour House hosted a mural competition Labor Day weekend. I was chosen to paint the front entryway of their attached restaurant, El Bohio. The winner of this competition is dependent on public votes. Please go online and vote http://www.charlestonpourhouse.com/ or email Jessica Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org .

First day on the job
Since The Charleston Pour House is a music venue, it was obvious that I would incorporate music into this mural. The idea of butterflies with guitar neck bodies and piano keys that trim their wings came to me. There was a column in my space, and with their permission, I turned it into a giant piano turned on it's side from where the butterflies originate and earn their piano keyed wings!
The El Bohio sign was taken down for me to paint, but I took it into account in my design since it will be reattached after. I decided to have one of the butterflies land on the edge of the sign.
Again, if you really enjoyed my mural, please go online and vote http://www.charlestonpourhouse.com/ or email Jessica Wilson at email@example.com . Add my name, Michele Levani, along with Mural #8 to the subject line.
