Doug Robertson's murals can be seen around Bend, adorning such places as the south wall of Substance cannabis dispensary’s south location and Cascade Heating’s west-facing wall at First Street and Olney Avenue.

In typical years, he’ll work on stencils and do other prep work during the winter months, painting commissioned murals May through about October.

As we all learned the hard way, 2020 was hardly a typical year.

Robertson was able to keep busy early in the COVID-19 pandemic with a mural commissioned by Brooks Resources, planned in 2019, with the painting of the mural begun in June 2020. However, after it was complete, the mural momentum halted abruptly.
