Block Island Ferry Trompe loeil Mural, 8’6″ x 4′, 2014
Private Residence, Narragansett, Rhode Island
by Charles C. Clear III
This scenic trompe loeil mural features the Block Island Ferry. It shows the boat coming in to port at Point Judith in Narragansett, Rhode Island. The Ferry is a Rhode Island icon that transports passengers, vehicles, and freight several times a day to and from Block Island. Block Island, also called New Shoreham, is a part of Rhode island, but it’s located off the mainland.
The misty twilight scene in the mural is shown through a hand painted bay window. This trompe loeil bay window has decorative grilles. The warm brown tones of the window’s faux wood molding compliment both the furniture and the actual molding on the opposite side of the room. This is a very calming, quiet Mural, and it fits perfectly inside this luxurious seaside home in Narragansett.
The homeowners were so pleased with this Block Island Ferry mural that they commissioned me to paint a companion piece – the Narragansett Towers Mural.
