Naples Florida Marine Life
underwater mural at the beautiful home of
Phil & Stacie Manhardt.
I'm creating an underwater, top water and landscape scene all wrapped up into one mural.
The color will coordinate with the floor tiles and surrounding walls earth tones.
Phil & Stacie with their two adorable son's.
The boys picked out most of the fish that I used in this mural. It was so much fun watching their faces light up each day after school when they would dash out to the patio and check out my progress. Shark and Barracuda are their nick names.
This project is complete now. You'll notice that the Sting Ray was replaced with a Turtle, which gives the wall a friendlier look. This Mural was a challenging project due to the heavy stucco texture and desire to have an underwater scene without having a predominately blue wall. Our goal was to create a Mural that visually coordinated with the overall taupe colors in the room. I believe success was achieved, and hope you agree.
Dear Phil and Stacie,
Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality and for putting up with me during both stays.
I have enjoyed painting for you and greatly value our new friendship. Getting to know you and
your family was an honor and a pleasure. I am especially grateful for your support and
understanding when my daughter became ill, thank you for taking care of my supplies while
I was in Phoenix...
Until we meet again, I wish you and your family the best... Always.
