Cool another hotel pool mural

Here's what I'm working on now. It's in an indoor pool area, Holiday Inn in Myrtle Beach SC. The wall is about 7' high and about 40' long. There's a jog in the middle of it, so here's what I did with it:





This is the other end of the wall:


Close-up of the corner bar:


This shows the rough texture I'm working on... ugh!

Too much fun!
Ruth

This is AWESOME!!! I did a mural once with dolphins in 1994. It's nothing fancy. I can't remember how big it was, but I haven't done one since then either & don't plan on it.
This is very creative. How long has this taken you so far?

Hi, Ruth... every time I see another of your murals, I am newly awed... your talent is boundless... and your choice of subjects is just marvelous.... this is a really beautiful piece of work. I hope the client is suitably impressed...

Thanks, y'all! What you see here is 3 days' work. I'll probably be at it for another 6 or 7 days. I don't know if the owner has seen it yet, but the hotel guests are very appreciative.

Jenrou, let me know when you come to the beach, we'll have lunch and I'll take you on a tour! I'd love to meet you.

Ruth

I hope they have medics on standby to treat all the people who run into the wall, as they run towards the beach

Thanks, Ruth. I haven't been in awhile. We used to vacation in the condos south of the midway/carnival area. I'd like to go back, maybe next year. Love to meet you too.
