August 1st, Our 15th Painting Session (+ Aug 2)

Who:  Totally funded by and sponsored by the Vero Beach Art Club.
           Artist Volunteers:  Dawn Mill (artist and project manager), Christine Thomas (artist), and Judy Burgarella (artist and blogger)
What: Vero Beach Mural Project.  Six stretched panels each 6' wide by 8' high, totaling 36' long, to be hung in the Community Center.
Where:  Community Center, 2266 14th Avenue, Vero Beach, 772-978-4592
Why:  For the beautification of the City of Vero Beach; also to be used as an educational tool and in the promotion of the City of Vero Beach.
Timeline:  Artists paint Mondays and Fridays, early morning till late afternoon.
Visit:  Best time to view painters at work is 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  If visiting, kindly keep it brief so that painters can get the most out of their day.

Blog:  It's kind of hard to see any detail in most of the photos we've posted, so I am presenting some details for you.  First is Christine's, which as you can see she is expert in all things under and above water.  She is having a ball--as we all are--seeing those fishies come to life.

As for Dawn, well that goes without saying that ALL her details are worth posting even now at this early stage, however I am posting my favorite detail of her panel.

And as for me, since I am so far behind because of my trip, I snuck in to get an additional painting session in Tuesday, 8-1:00.  I had hoped to have more done, as the Vero Beach Art Club will be having their monthly meeting Thursday here in the Community Center.  Below is a detail of my panel.  It does't look like I got a lot done, but I am finally over-the-hump with the annoying little details of the Vero Furniture building.  Couple more hours on that and the critical details of the building will be done and i can move on to what I enjoy most--painting people!

 Well, that's it for now, until Friday.
