Had a few errands to run, so didn't get to the mural until about 9:00 a.m. Christine had to work, and Dawn is away, so I was all by my lonesome today. And it was lonesome, but productive. Lauri, who works at the Community Center, asked if I get more done without Chris and Dawn there, and I had to say that we get right to work and work while we talk. Actually sometimes it goes faster because numerous problems are solved beforehand through consult with each other as the problems arise. Remember, we are working mostly from our own minds, guessing at perspective--not only on buildings but on animals, people and foliage. Redos are frequent in spite of collaboration, as in today's instance, where I discovered after uploading Monday's "Theatre Plaza" marquee sign that the perspective was completely the opposite of what it should be. So today I spent over an hour repainting the signs with all the tedious lettering. See below--still not perfect but good enough for a mural.

Below is a detail of Panel #1 which shows a few of the things that were painted in today: grassy islands, marquee signs, ibis, bench, 2 women and baby, and touch-ups on Mayor Turner.

And so here is the whole panel #1 so far, alongside Panel #2 which it transitions onto. Although I'm having fun with #1, I can't wait to finish up that ornary snake on the dead tree in #2, and put one of those ugly ol' vultures in that I always see cleaning up roadkill. A very fascinating food chain we have here by golly!
