Branching Out

After quite a few months the new website MacArthur website went live, although today I was over shooting  pictures of the band new nature center to add to the pages. This is a totally new endeavor for me to do a design and create images for a website. I am very honored the Friends of MacArthur asked me to to it. The company  I worked with was 360True

My MacArthur Beach Turtle Tank Instalation

Well after much hard work and nail biting, my installation at the MacArthur Beach State Park is finished and a few days ago Caretta was placed in her new home. She is the Loggerhead seen in my 2nd photo down on the upper left. The new Nature Center had it's Grand Opening a few night ago and I was so honored to have my work displayed so visibly on their new front porch. The composites I created out of many images I personally shot to make the look and feel of the reef located off the Parks's beach.I then turned my giant PS file over to Knaffs Signs who printed it on the material they use to wrap cars.
 Today I am going over and later will add an image of the viewing window on the front with Caretta . I am still working on the website that went live this week. I did say "YES" to two new major works. This tank plus doing the Art and Web design on their website. I am so happy "The Friends of MacArthur" gave me the opportunity. The website is live but I am still adding photos to each page so it is a work in progress.If you are in Florida please make a trip to this amazing Park located on Singer Island in Palm Beach County.

Snook Island Opening

Snook Islands Natural Area
Lake Worth
Wednesday, February 29, 2012, 9:00 a.m. is the Grand Opening of the Snook Islands Natural Area.  There is a boardwalk, fishing pier, water taxi and day-use docks, kayak launch, and boat trailer parking area.
I am hoping this new boardwalk will give our local birders a chance to see shorebirds and maybe catch a glimpse of Lake Worth Lagoon's nesting American Oystercatchers and Reddish Egrets.
Snook Islands Natural Area is located within Lake Worth Lagoon just south of the City of Lake Worth Municipal Golf Course.
From I-95 go east on 10thAvenue North. Go right on Federal Hwy. Go left on 2ndAvenue North. Go right on North Golfview Road. Parking is available in the vicinity of 101 North Golfview Road both north and south of Lucerne Avenue.
