Today Dawn and I got a late start with both of us having other appointments, getting to the Community Center at about 9:30 and leaving at 3:00. I had another appointment at 11:00-1:30 so the day was interrupted again. It is difficult to get back into the groove each time, so this was not a quantity/quality type of painting day. However we did get some elements done which were important. Dawn worked on the difficult area of buildings in the distance on the beach, trying to make them somewhat more interesting than they actually are. Dawn also worked on the problem area of transitioning bottoms of Panels #4 to #5. Christine will follow up once she's back with more painterly touches to add to this transition. I worked on skunks and people on panel #2. Below are pictures of our progress, albeit not a whole lot.
Pictured below are panels #4 and #5, with the transition looking much more natural. We strived to create as much logic in the transitions as possble, however each panel represents a different habitat and must stand on its own for the mission of the project.

I finished up the baby skunk looking over the log and put more finishing touches on the log, although need more scumbling on the right side.

So check back some time on Saturday when I'll have posted another bunch of pictures, and be sure to see the Vero Beach Art Club's fabulous Art By The Sea Show, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with an opening reception Friday night from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm - wine, hors d'eouvres, lots of artists, and you'll be able to see the fine art of two of the Mural artists - myself and Dawn. Don't miss it!
