Artist works on chamber mural that depicts historic commerce

Artist Mark Martensen works on the chamber-sponsored mural that will be on the wall of Affordable Treasures in Old Town Ramona.

San Diego County artists Bob Teague and Mark Martensen are busy working in their studios on the latest mural for the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project, one sponsored by the Ramona Chamber of Commerce.

The mural will be on the wall of Affordable Treasures at 677 Main St. As the chamber requested, it depicts historic commerce in Ramona.

Based on a painting by the late Ramona resident Louise Shidner, the mural features a horse-drawn hay wagon on Main Street.

Teague is carefully replicating the Shidner painting with the approval of her trustees, said Elaine Lyttleton, Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project president.

The completion and installation is hoped to be achieved in the next few weeks, said Lyttleton.

  1. Another Bob

    We passed by as they were working on the mural. I complemented Bob Teague, and the others standing around, on the job they were doing. I was dismayed by the rudeness and faces made. What's up? Affected artist? Genius? Who knows. Next time get someone from Ramona. Not a "San Diego County artist" who didn't seem to want to be bothered. My 11 year old daughter was even surprised by their actions. Used it to teach her a lesson on manners.
