Hurrah for Israel!

This summer I'm privileged to be part of a group of artist going to Nazareth to paint a mural in a children's hospital there with the service organization forPEACE. The trip actual trip will take place in August, but we've been working together for the past month on the planning stages. I thought I'd post for you our sketch for the mural, still very rough line work and pieced together from bits we all worked on, but it will give us the basics for what we need to get started.

And some rough color studies:

We wanted to do something with a sense of fantasy about it, and we liked the idea of glowing lantern like elements. And of course, you know what a huge fan I ma of fish.

The other artists in the group are Bethanne Andersen, Boston Madsen, Adam Borgia, and Jake Wyatt. It's been wonderful to work with such talented artists and excellent friends. And I can't wait to see how the mural turns out come August.
