Hobe Sound Office Building Mural

Our 5th annual mural participation concurrent with the Hobe Sound Festival of the Arts on the week-end of February 3rd and 4th, 2013.

It is our first subdued, subtle and painterly mural.

It depicts an ‘Old Florida’ landscape with a moody sky to match the building’s existing color and includes 11 native bird species!

Since it is on the west-facing wall of the ‘Hobe Sound Office Building’, with 3 mature trees right next to it ... the mural image transforms as the day proceeds - and as the moving sun casts increasingly strong shadows of real trees against our painted landscape.

The painterly credits go to:

Nadia Utto, for design proposal, the daily process and the birds...

Shannon Wiley of Stuart, is a professional artist and was our ‘guest artist’ for the second time!

He brings a quick and very skilled eye to the projects horizon line with intermittent palm trees rising above background. What he can do in a few hours!!!!

Carol Boye helped paint the important lily pads dotted throughout the water feature.

She is a master colorist and took time out from her own large painting commission to be “on the wall” with us. Thanks!!

Please read more about them in the ARTISTS profile section.

Frank Marrero who has helped on most of the murals so far, also helped here again on the depiction of grasses on the far slough shores.

Josef Utto took care of prepping, priming and painting the millions of grass blades in the foreground of the entire wall.

He is once again “the wall’s” most helpful person!

The mural took 9 full  days to complete.
