My readers are likely wondering when this wall mural is going to be completed…it’s coming!! I continue to embellish and paint into the negative spaces and today Marilyn worked to create a rich sense of warm violet/red soil beneath the tree. You will know that the piece is completed once I paint the Omega symbol in the bottom right of the picture plane.
Today, ten-year-old Dylan was welcomed into the space and adhered his angel to the wall, shown here just to the left of his head. I told him that in twenty-five years, he will be able to bring his friends and family into this space and explain that this is where he stood in 2012 and posed for this photograph for me. Thank you, Dylan. I think that his angel is a bit of a caricature…so whimsical and lovely.
