The Indiana Dunes State Park | Nature Center Diorama Background

As part of her responsibilities at Blue Rhino Studio, Beth paints background murals for fabricated nature scenes--dioramas. This diorama measured 12' across and was installed at the Indiana Dunes State Park's Nature Center in spring of 2010. The mural was designed in small-scale and painted by hand at full size (approximately 21' long, 10' high). Many of the foreground elements (artificial grasses, plants, and groundform) were also fabricated by Beth, along with other members of the talented Blue Rhino Studio staff.
