Going With the Flow

muralblend_smThe plan was to finish the mural on Monday, however it is not done. As you can see I am doing some glazing and blending of the colours to tie it all together.

More time was spent drinking coffee and eating poppy seed cake in the beginning, so I ran out of time. A good visit, so not all was lost. Sometimes you have to make life a priority.

Exciting, n’est pas? Someone is paying me to have fun … playing all over their walls. Whoo Hooo. They have promised a steady flow of nectar of the gods (coffee), and I have been invited to stay for dinner.

My first mural. The wall is ten feet by eight feet. Stay tuned for some photos of the escapade as it unfolds. And the finished product, of course.

Good conversation, in a relaxed setting, we enjoyed an amazing meal of West Indian curry. Although I had known these people for sometime, this was the first opportunity we’d had to socialize.

When I saw it hanging in it’s place of honour, all I could say was, “Wow, did I do that?” Their love for the work, was obvious as we observed the way the light was reflected when viewing from different angles. I was in awe.
