Today, Friday, Dawn and I were at the mural all day. We had a couple of visitors in the morning, and in the afternoon Rita Ziegler (President of the VB Art Club) and her husband George, and Rita's sister-in-law Jean. Dawn explained the old and new mural to them, we chatted a while, and they were on their way. Shortly thereafter, Judith Ragusa, our fellow Artists Guild Gallery member, came by and was blown away. After painting all day it was good to hear such positive responses.
Dawn made progress on her Panel #5, with the children on the beach. Her boogieboard boy is finished, having given her a good deal of trouble as she tried to combine several images into one to use as a reference--a very difficult process. She has finally nailed him and is now ready to tackle another section.

I worked today on details of Panel #1, painting the logo of "Natalie's" Citrus Company on the 2nd car of the train, and painting in a Hispanic mom and daughter to represent the strong Hispanic history and presence in Vero Beach.

Well, that's all for now folks. Stop by the blog Monday night and perhaps you'll see more. Or better still, stop by the Community Center and see it for yourself--it's a sight to behold!
