Janet's Mural

mural.jpg (47899 bytes)


After my recent motorcycle accident, I spent some time recuperating at my sister's shore house just off of the Barnegat Bay.  As you enter the house, you walk up a short flight of steps to a landing, and then turn for another short flight of steps. The wall of this landing is 11'6" high and 7' wide.   It was the perfect place to paint a mural. I continued the seascape onto the adjoining side walls to the stairs and even partly on the ceiling.  I was happy with the detail in the sand and land plants, but because of my injury, I had a very hard time with the palms.  All in all, at 12' high, the lack of detail on the palms seemed to add depth while standing beneath them.  For my first attempt at painting a mural, it worked out well.
