Acrylic mural in five niches, each niche approximately 4.75'x7.5'. Megan Mckeithan painted the mural in five niches inside of a curved stone arcade. This space connects the foyer and pro-shop to the dining room and bar area. The mural incorporates elements often found in Tuscan murals; cypress trees, rolling hills and cultivated fields make up the landscape. Olive branches and a fig branch drape in the foreground to help add depth to the mural. The interior designer, Yvonne Portwood, also asked Megan to integrate the feeling of the Florida landscape in the mural. While the client didn't want to include palm trees and other Florida details in the mural, the designer did want to help connect the theme of Tuscany with the Florida landscape right outside the window. Toll Brothers, the design client, also asked for bright color to brighten up the somewhat dark arcade area. So, Megan used the beautiful blue and bold clouds of the Florida sky in the mural, echoing the rich blue tones of the accent colors used throughout the golf club. She also incorporated the limestone railed stone walls and rich tones of the beautiful Saint Augustine grass found throughout the country club into the design of the mural. The mural also features two views of a beautiful lake like those found all around the golf course to help connect the mural to its Parkland Golf and Country Club home.
While working on the mural the client also requested an antique finish on top of the painting to help make it feel as though it wasn't brand new. Megan's associate Tinsley Dempsey was on site helping paint the mural and created an antique glaze on top of the mural. One other consideration of the project was keeping the mural within a tight budget. Megan was able to accommodate this request by keeping the sky large and the foreground simple. With the larger budget quote below, more detail could be included in the foreground; perhaps flowering plants in Tuscan urns or sculptures could be added in front of the stone wall in the future. Or, stone pavers like the ones outside could be included to add even more depth in the foreground, with other items perhaps painted on the railings. Whenever she is planning a mural, Megan considers all of the requests of the client and come up with the best solution to fit the architecture, the interior design, and the budget. This mural was not painted on canvas but could be.
