Check Out that Nutria!

Most people love the nutria almost as much as they love the 45' long alligator!  Diana Shortez helped with the basics and the leaves around him, Andrea helped add some shading, and I put the finishing touches on his furry back.  Thanks also to Brandon Paillant, who did about 80-90% of the trees, Amy Reuben and Wendi Berman for all their help prepping, priming and basicking.  

And thanks to every neighbor and passerby for telling me how much the love it!  It is your mural as much as mine.  Muah!

Breaux Mart Mural: A Celebration of Audubon Zoo's Swamp Exhibit

Okay, so it only took me two weeks to finally post these!  That's because I STILL want to work on it, though I'm "sort of" letting it go!  This mural is 17' tall x 160' wide... and took me and some assistants 5 weeks to complete in the Louisiana summer heat!
