Local Artist Paints Mural For Yacht Club
A new hand-painted mural graces the walls of the Henderson Harbor Yacht Club.
Local artist Garrett McCarthy spent two and a half weeks creating the new mural.
It's a re-creation of a well-known nautical painting, with a few changes and additions here and there.
McCarthy had an audience as he painted, with local boat captains pulling up a chair to watch and offer advice.
"I don't know if he was too pleased to be painting and having an audience," said yacht club member Marshall Reutlinger.
"Michelangelo, he didn't want to be."
Spotlights above the painting make the sails appear to be back lighted by the sun. When the lights are turned off, the scene suddenly turns stormy.
