Army Medic Sculpture Mural"
2003---Kenner Clinic, Fort Lee, VA
This was a fun project to work on. I painted this mural with another artist, Bob Jenny, in the newly constructed addition of Kenner Clinic Army Hospital in Fort Lee, VA. The army medic is an inspiration to soldier and civilian alike, since they must have all the grittiness and tenacity of a soldier, and yet the compassion and gentleness of a Florence Nightingale. On a blank wall, we did a tribute to the medic, depicting him as he bandages his fellow soldiers wound, and attends to his needs.
Done in the Trompe L'Oeil style, the mural is three dimensional, and looks like a bronze statue set within a marble alcove wall. Even when you look at it from an angle, the marble pattern in the front still fools your eye, and makes you think it's really there. This was such a rewarding project to work on, and we really enjoyed talking with everyone while we were doing it.
Shown is a portion of a 6'x30' mural depicting the bravery and importance of the army medic in American conflicts. The top wood border was painted to match the actual wood railing below.
This was a Trompe L'Oeil mural painted with other artists. Everything, including the arch, was painted on this previously white wall.
