Finished At Last!
As promised, and with the cooperation of the weather, Doug has put the finishing touches on the nursery mural. Our volunteer painters did a great job and Doug went back over all three walls to make sure that all the colors were consistent and that the perspectives were correct. Over the next few months we will be landscaping the area in front of the mural with some ground cover vegetation to enhance the setting.
We are thrilled with the final result and know that the nursery mural will be a centrepiece of the CUE Haven landscape for years to come. The mural painting effort embodies everything that the CUE Haven project strives for—community involvement, cooperation, beautification of the land and celebration of native New Zealand habitats and creatures.
Once again we want to thank everyone who helped out on the project—and hope you will come out to visit and see the mural. We especially want to thank Doug Ford for his time, inspiration, leadership and for help making the mural and the painting days so special. And a special thank you to the people at Resene Paints who generously provided the paint for the project.
