The other mural we created was a more advanced rendition of a Striped Bass and Bluefish chasing baitfish. We used the flounder prints from the Seafood festival to outline the image in the middle... More postings when its complete!

Beach Murals at the Beach Bash and Splash!!
During the Annual Beach Bash and Splash, a select group of artists and I had the opportunity to create some awesome murals! Esmeralda, Jazeel, Edward, Ruth, Roza and I started by painting the backgrounds an ocean blue hue. We then taped off the borders and created a multi-colored tile frame around it!
When the kids started arriving they drew fish and aquatic motifs on a separate sheet of paper, afterward they modge-podged them to the canvases! The result was priceless. The kids animals included first and foremost, sharks, octopuses, angel fish, bass and angelfish! When the modge-podge dried it revealed a crystal clear glaze against a bright blue background. Everyone was enthusiastic and the final mural will be displayed within the office very shortly.
