June 15th, our 91st Vero Beach Mural Painting Session

NOTE: The Vero Beach Mural Project is being Sponsored by the Vero Beach Art Club as a gift to the City.  The artist members of the Vero Beach Art Club who are volunteering their time and talents are Dawn Mill (Project Manager), Christine Thomas (, and Judy Burgarella (   Examples of artists' work can also be found on  The Mural consists 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," 2266 14th Avenue, Vero Beach, Florida USA, 772-978-4592.  Visitors are welcome to watch the artists paint between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Mondays and Fridays.

I was M.I.A. this Friday, as I had a show, but Christine was painting by herself.  She sent me this pelican that she worked on.  She had him sketchily painted in but now he looks fantastic.   His body spans two panels.  Nothing much more to tell you about the mural as I have scant information, but here's Christine's pelican:

Monday I hope to work on the murals if possible.  As long as they are set up and Christine is working still, I'll go and tweak a couple of things.  Perhaps put beautiful Dolce's face on the hispanic mom with child.  Dolce works at the gated community where I teach painting., a really sweet girl.

So check back and perhaps there will be more interesting posts yet to come.
