The National Veterans Art Museum is honoring Memorial Day 2012 with the opening of a new mural installation, “War Made A New Me,” by Dominic (Dom) Fredianelli, one of the subjects of Where Soldiers Come From (POV 2011). Dom is in one of the museum galleries all week working on the mural before it is unveiled this Saturday, May 26 along with a film screening and artist’s talk. Check out his progress throughout the week here on the POV Blog.

Today, the National Veterans Art Museum shares a few photos from their Facebook album “War Made A New Me” – A Work in Progress

The paint pens are in three different widths, so Dominic can play with density and shadow, helping create the illusion of dimensionality.
Dominic works from sketches of the figures in the mural, taping them to the wall.

Dominic has set up an area with painting supplies and his muse: music.
