The Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Tampa Florida Commissioned a large 11 foot by 5 foot wall mural of Dan's work on custom materials stretched on a larger stretcher bar. Dan personally handmade the oversized stretcher bar and received praise from a master wood craftsman, noting the large stretcher frame was square within a 1/32" "virtually impossible for such a large frame".

Dan is expanding his fish series to include "METAL FISH" cast in zinc that is melted using the power of only concentrated sunlight.
