Our 3rd annual mural participation concurrent with the Hobe Sound Festival of the Arts on the week-end of February 5th and 6th, 2011.

This mural depicts an underwater close-up of selected local intracoastal species swimming among the mangrove roots!

The setting and creatures are depicted in an over life-size scale - but otherwise done with an eye toward realistic qualities.

It is a topic near and dear to avid fisherman and building owner - Rob Weigt.

His business logo is centered around a personal favorite - the snook.

The interior offices of R.L. Weigt Environmental Consultants are well appointed with many artistic versions of environmental themes, done by various artists.

His two young grandsons - Dylan Barber and Austin Buntz, contributed a sponge, crab & snail image on the wall....

Otherwise the painterly credits go to:

Shannon P. Wiley of Stuart, who is a professional artist and whose original small scale work is already hanging inside the office. 

As a ‘guest artist’, he brought great humor, fish expertise, friends and paint to the project outside!

Shannon did a pair of snook, mangrove snapper, puffer, and school of bait fish.

Please read more about him in the ARTISTS profile section and through the links to his own website.

James Hook, who has helped on each and every mural so far -

once again lent both his morning and evening hours, between the daily artistic work he was already providing for a private client...

His thoughtful dedication to a snook, pair of redfish and escaping mullet was very much appreciated.

Natalie L. helped paint for the 2nd time on a H.S. Mural.

She tackled the spanish mackerel & jack crevalle with her typical zest and added great coloration on many mangrove roots.

Carol Boye on her 3rd mural so far, did a permit fish and shared her general painterly & colorist touch throughout.

She and Arthur LeWall also rendered most of the fore & background grasses.

Frank Marrero who has helped on most of the murals so far, laid out the careful placement for all the fish silhouettes in chalk and began the school of sergeant majors.

Josef Utto took care of prepping, priming and painting the beautiful backdrop of water & sand color on the entire wall.

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

Curt Wilson, a drive-through visitor to Hobe Sound,  happened to pass by the wall in process, stopped to talk about it and ended up helping for 3 days!

Among other skills, he is a movie-set painter who works in Atlanta, Georgia.

Since he was an out-of-state person, we gave him the “invasive species” to contribute. . . He was good-natured about accepting this task and painted in the snakehead, peacock bass and tilapia fish on the northern edge of the wall!

The mural took 9 full  days to complete.

Several additional individuals took a brush in their hands and even if it was only momentary - contributed some color - somewhere.

This brings the number of painters in the Hobe Sound Murals project to.... 70!
