‘Shadows’ mural on Rock Rabbit part of PFAC Public Art Project

September 14, 2014

Artist Charmian McLellan has completed her mural, entitled "Shadows," on the west side of the Rock Rabbit building in Pinedale as part of the Pinedale Fine Arts Council’s (PFAC) In|Site:Ex|Site public arts program. Her mural replaces Sue Sommers' "Our Glittering World" which had been up for two years. Sue’s mural was cut into sections and sold for $100 per square foot as a fund raiser for the Pinedale Fine Arts Council.

The mural projects are managed by the PFAC Visual Arts Committee, which invited Charmian to submit three proposals to replace the Rock Rabbit building mural. They couldn't decide which one to choose so they put them on Facebook and allowed people to vote. The "Shadows" mural design received the most votes. It is a redtail hawk soaring after a snowshoe hare. This painting will also be up for two years.

"I spent 75 to 80 hours on the project which took a month, including breaks for rainy days," Charmian said. She used top-of-the-line Sherwin-Williams exterior primer/paint for the panels and Golden fluid acrylics for the images themselves. The red chop or seal is her first name in Chinese, which she I stamps on her oriental brush paintings.

Other PFAC public art projects include several sculptures on the street corners around Pinedale and the cabochons in the sidewalks.
