Now we have trees laid in! We have selected colors for the chairs so they are next along with some more details and we will have a completed mural.
I spent most of yesterday painting a mural at Main Street Travel. (You can check out their Facebook page here.)
I enjoy mural painting. It’s fun to see the client’s vision come to life. And Ginny is a wonderful person for which to work. She and I had fun deciding what and where to put it. You can see from the photos my step by step work yesterday.
I got the background in: sky, ocean and sand. Today I hope to get the rest done: palm trees and Adirondack chairs.
And didn’t they do a terrific job in the Young Kids Class this past Thursday?

Two wonderful and very different artists share a birthday today – Edward Hopper and Alexander Calder.
Edward Hopper (July 22, 1882 – May 15, 1967) was a prominent American realist painter and printmaker. While he was most popularly known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolorist. Both in his urban and rural scenes, his spare and finely calculated renderings reflected his personal vision of modern American life. See more here.
Alexander Calder ( July 22, 1898 – November 11, 1976) was an American sculptor known as the originator of the mobile, a type of kinetic sculpture made with delicately balanced or suspended components which move in response to motor power or air currents. Calder’s stationary sculptures are called stabiles. He also produced numerous wire figures, notably for a miniature circus. More about Calder here.
