Dawn, Christine and I worked pretty much throughout the day, only breaking for lunch and laughs, interrupted occasionally with back-and-forth about the mural. Dawn and I had worked some extra hours during the week and so got a bit ahead.
Christine had a smashing day at painting today. She painted in puffer fish, parrotfish and some dazzling little golden fish (can't remember the names), which almost vibrated off the canvas due to the deep blue background. This panel is sure to be a favorite of the young folk.

Dawn spent most of her day on Panel 5 refining the Driftwood, and working on the foliage at the southwest area of the panel. She roughed in some bathers on the beach, and tweaked other areas. Below is her progress so far
|Panel #5 - Back of Driftwood Inn|
Pictured is Dawn hard at work on Panel #5. We were all in such deep concentration today that long stretches of time went by without a word ... just the quiet sound of brush on canvas (and an occasional "Oops!" or other commonly-used words which are used relieve one's stress, when one of us splattered or spilled paint).

Also in the beginning stages is a mama eagle guarding her nest. There will be eaglebabies in there somewhere at a later date. Mama eagle needs to be enlarged though which will have to wait.
