The second Parksville, BC mural depicts a tropical beach scene not unlike Pirates of the Caribbean. The artwork includes a cutlass in the foreground pointing towards a pirate ship anchored with a smoking volcano on the horizon, a beached pirate ship wreck with a skeleton and pirates on the beach, and a treasure chest with a dagger marking a treasure map.
Conan the Barbarian, normally hidden in my murals, struts down the centre of the beach wearing pirate boots, belts and a baldric. Never outdone, the smiling Cimmerian brings a barrel of rum into the mural, where the other pirate has a jug.
The right side of my BC pirate mural depicts a Caribbean beach scene and a washed up ship wreck with a skeleton resting inside. Jolly pirate scoundrels occupy the beach, wile in the foreground a treasure chest of gold is about to be buried, as a dagger pinning a map reveals the location.
The pirate ship I painted in this BC mural is a Frigate Man-O-War, complete with a skeleton figurehead. As I was painting I was flooded with childhood memories of pirate ships, and how I was always wondering if they secretly sailed in Vancouver Island waters.
The left side of this BC pirate mural shows a tropical ocean scene with a pirate ship anchored in a bay with cobalt coloured waters and a volcano in the background. A cutlass sword protrudes out of a tree trunk in the foreground, which is painted against real ivy and Bas relief boulders.
