October 1st, our 32nd Mural Painting Session

 (c)2011 Judy Burgarella, Dawn Mill, Christine Thomas

 NOTE: The Vero Beach Mural Project is being Sponsored by the Vero Beach Art Club, and created by Artist Volunteers Judy Burgarella (  Dawn Mill and Christine Thomas (   Examples of artists' work can be found on 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.
Today Dawn and I painted until about 10:00 when Sue Dinenno, our interviewer, and Bob Barbour, our videographer, arrived to go over the edits.  Bob is creating a video for the Mural Project for the Vero Beach Art Club.  So we did a run-through first of just voice with quick editing comments, then voice with video, quite a production.   I think the video is fabulous, and is sure to peak the public's interest in seeing the finished work in person.  Christine arrived just as Dawn and I were finishing up the edits, but Christing did another run-through herself, then we got back to the canvases for a while before stopping for lunch.

Although we didn't have a lot of time to paint today, I managed to readjust the barrier island and lagoon to better reflect perspective of it relative to the mainland, and I segued my Panel #2 with Dawn's Panel #3, rather nicely I would say.  I hope to get some trees in there on Monday.

Christine finished her stingray and some other little fishies.  She'll soon be painting in a conglomerate of underwater life on Panel #6, following Dawn's Beachy scene on Panel #5.

Below you can see where Christine has added more greenery and fishes to Panel #4.

Dawn is moving right along on her Panel #5, putting in the surfer and some seagulls stealing cookies!  So cute!

Dawn's panel #5 looks almost complete, however she still has lots to do on it.

Although we didn't have a lot of time to paint today, I managed to refine the barrier island to better reflect it's relationship to the mianland, and I painted in a seguey from my Panel #3 to Dawn's panel.

Well, that's all for now, Judy Burgarella, Blogger, signing off!
