September 2002 finalist

From the Resene/Your Home and Garden Colour Home Awards Competition - Sep 2002 finalist

A mural on a concrete wall in an Auckland courtyard has won homeowners Dot and Michael Haslam $500 worth of Resene paint vouchers. Dot asked Glen Hutchins, a Master of Fine Arts student at the Elam School of Fine Arts, to recreate her vision.

Glen, who has several murals to his credit, says he always chooses Resene paints for their pure rich colour and durability. Briefed to create a waterfall on the 5m x 3.5m high concrete block wall, Glen chose Resene Bush, Resene Golden Dream, Resene Bright Red, Resene Resolution Blue and Resene Racing Green for the mural, which he painted freehand. Dot finished the scene with riverstones and artificial grass. "I don't have to mow it," she says."I just vacuum it once a week and enjoy!"
