Oct. 24th: Our 39th Mural Painting Session

 NOTE: The Vero Beach Mural Project is being Sponsored by the Vero Beach Art Club, and created by Artist Volunteers Judy Burgarella (http://www.burgarellaart.com/)  Dawn Mill and Christine Thomas (www.innerspacesandouterplaces.com).   Examples of artists' work can be found on www.verobeachartclub.org/) The Mural consistes of six stretched canvas panels, 36' long by 8' high, each panel 8' x 6'.  Created in and for the Community Center, in their "Florida Room."  Visitors are welcome to watch the artists paint between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Mondays and Fridays.

Christine here, filling in for Judy, she is off for the week, her daughter and darling new granddaughter are visiting from California. I am jealous, but hopefully will be able to get my 'grandma fix' when she brings the baby to the community center for a visit. Dawn was off too, she was fulfilling her duties at the Artist Guild.

Usually we are painting and chatting, but we do notice that we all get in the 'zone' at about the same time...and it gets soooo quiet. I guess I was in the 'zone' all day since I was painting alone.

 I worked on getting the sea turtles started, and the beginnings of a large octopus. Being that this is the Treasure Coast, I must include some of the treasures that local diver/treasure hunter Mel Fisher found off our coast. There was a fleet 11 ships that wrecked in 1715. One in particular was the Capitan which is located off of the Riomar golf course. I have started with a canon and will add the jewels, gold and other artifacts and maybe even Mel.

Dawn is solo painting Tuesday...hopefully Dawn and I will be there together on Wednesday and Judy will bring her little sweetie pie here to see us. Right Judy :)
