Fenway Park Mural, 12′ x 4′, 2006
Private Residence, Lincoln, Rhode Island
by Charles C. Clear III and Bonnie Turner
People who love the Red Sox, really love the Red Sox! In Autumn of 2006, we were commissioned to create a mural of Fenway Park in the billiard room of a spectacular Rhode Island home. The approximately 12′ x 4′ mural is meticulously detailed, with architecture, signage, and the majority of the people in the crowd were painted individually – with facial features! To heighten the sense of realism and to add a bit of a trompe l’oeil effect, we included the pillars from the Fenway Grandstand and then framed the scene with faux wood molding to match the real wood in the room. We also included beers and binoculars on the painted shelf.
And one more thing to note: While painting the mural, we jokingly asked the homeowner if he would like to be painted into the mural being led out by Fenway security for wearing a Yankees shirt. He laughed, and asked if we could do just that – but with his son in law….funny!
Following the success of this Red Sox mural, we also painted a New England Patriots Football Mural in another area of this home.
