Today I was all by my lonesome working on the mural. It sure was quiet in there (after all the exercize people left and the jazzy music stopped). Missed my "buds," but Dawn was away and Christine is knee-deep in her move. Got there early, but had to leave at 3:30 for a meeting, but felt as if I accomplished something in spite of the short day. The Vero Beach Art Club's "Art by the Sea" show at the VB Museum took up a lot of Dawn's and my time last week, so that took priority over the mural. If you missed that show, you missed a good one. So exciting to be involved in a really great show like that.
So using my trusty laptop as a guide, I loaded up some pics I took of Vero Beach's new Mayor, Pilar Turner, and painted her into the crosswalk of the Downtown (Panel #1) canvas. Pilar's image on the canvas is really small, but you can tell it is her, wearing the same outfit as in the photo. Pictured below is a close-up of Pilar walking towards and looking at the group gathered in the lower left side of the panel.

NOTE: After posting this and then proofreading it again online, I realize that the perspective on the vertical "Theatre Plaza" sign is absolutely wrong! Eugh! Guess this will be a redo for Friday. Panels are so big sometimes you just get lost in them, but once they are in the blog it seems that one can see all the mistakes.
