Rainforest Mural: Macaw Exhibit at the Aquarium of the Americas

This past September, while simultaneously serving jury duty in Criminal District Court, I completed and installed this mural for the Macaw Exhibit in the Rainforest Area of Audubon Institute's Aquarium of the Americas. Like the exterior one for the Zoo's "Dinosaur Adventure" exhibit, it was executed using exterior latex paint on vinyl billboard material to withstand the constant moisture and weekly hosing of the painting.

I think it is one of my best works, especially considering I only spent a week to complete and install it. I can only post photos of sections and not a photo of the mural in its entirety due to the mural's size, my inability to photograph it from a distance, and my lack of a wide angle lens.
