On August 20 and 21, I joined approximately eight other artists to create individual outdoor murals as part of the 2010 Dartmouth Cove Mural Project. The image I created was designed specifically for this location in tribute to the mammals, birds and fish that inhabit the great oceans of our world. As a focal point, I chose to depict the incredible anomaly known as "Rockall", a great solitary rock which rises from the depths of the North Atlantic to stand alone against the elements. A wave rises to become a gull, while a whale dives in the background and a school of fish swim in the foreground, all under the tidal pull of a full moon.It was a sincere pleasure to participate in this project and I hope that all the murals are enjoyed by the public for years to come.
