A NEW UNDERSEA MURAL for RADY CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL

This new mural is 4ft. x 14 ft. and is located in the hospital's cardiac waiting room. Stephanie and I were asked to make it representational not cartoonish, yet the staff requested we include Nemo and Dory type fish for the kids. If you click on this image, you can see them kissing just to the right of Stephanie's head.
