Underwater Ceiling Mural In S.C.

This is a large ceiling mural about 24′ x 27′ to fit over the dentist’s chairs.

Cindy had a public viewing of the finished mural in our gym for the locals (before it was rolled up and hand delivered and installed by us). It was a big success with about 50 people attending.

Everyone wants to go to Dr. Young’s office! (don’t tell them, but I think that they are too old!)


Below are the in Progress Photos

Cindy can’t figure out why it takes SOOOOooooo long to paint bubbles…
Art thinks it’s because there are a bizillon of them.
Robert wants Cindy to add more!

Fish Mural
A school of fish, about 70 of them… the dolphins look happy they have arrived!
(Everything looks really small now, next to the whale.)
