This whimsical little ocean themed painting for the Osborne Bay Pub was the first mural in Crofton, BC. The mural is composed of a wave washing over an underwater ocean scene where a giant Pacific octopus is playing a red piano, as musical notes curve out of piano into the sky. As a Vancouver Island mural artist living in Victoria, BC, I made sure to capture all things Crofton in the mural, like the Vesuvius ferry arriving from Saltspring Island and the loaded wood chip barges towed in to the Crofton mill.
Really lovely.” That’s been the consensus of everyone to the bright image that captures all things Crofton, including the incredible Osborne Bay Pub music venue, the Crofton-Vesuvius ferry, undersea life and much more, with the notable extras.
In fact, that’s how he got the attention of Osborne Bay Pub general manager Patricia Berry and owner Tony Van De Mortel to paint the mural for Crofton.
“I strive to produce strong art that can be appreciated by all and doesn’t require an elaborate explanation.” This mural is certainly a big hit in Crofton and throughout the region, judging by all the personal and social media reaction of what a wonderful addition it is to the town.
It’s the perfect location for that size.” “I am a huge supporter of the arts in general and am honoured to be able to add something beautiful for everyone local and passing through to enjoy forever,” Berry noted.
