Thank you all so much for the nice thoughts. I'm slowly feeling better but it's been a long (and painful) haul.

I have been able to mock-up the diorama I've been planning for outside the windows behind the bar.
It will have adjustable lighting to transition from Day/Sunset to nighttime with horizon glow and stars.

The water effect will be accomplished by rear projecting HD footage I shot from a high atop a cliff during a recent trip to Hawaii. The screen will be frosted plexiglass installed into the diorama in the shape of the body of water.
The projection from below will also help create the effect of reflected water ripples on the underside of the dock and wings of
the Boeing Clipper.

Sound effects of the shoreline, birds, etc. will come from speakers outside the window to help complete the effect.

Where do you get these ideas? This is fantastic. If the rest of your work is anything to go by, this will look amazing.

That is going to be AWESOME John! I need to made a trip to WA

I am working on a project right now that requires a water effect on plexiglas, I just ordered an American DJ "Hydro" for $100. It projects a moving water light effect, check it out. 2 Similar units are the American DJ "H2O" and the Chauvet "Abyss"

So glad that you're back and feeling better, Mr. P! Your work on Hula Sue's is incredible. I can't wait to see some of your other themed rooms. Take it easy until you're feeling 100%! All my best.

Another fantastic idea! I love it. You could charge admission when you finish this bar! The forced perspective will be an interesting challenge.
How deep will the diorama be? Your are fortunate to have some space to work with, most of us have our backs to the wall!
