|The computer-generated mock-up of 'about' how the finished mural will appear shows the scale. Note the tiny adult human on the lower right-hand corner. He stands 5 '10".|
These captions are short and straight to the point. Once I feel I have a bit more breathing space, I will go into more detail about the thought and process that is invested in a project of this scale. There are other adjunct stories that tie into the project as well...stay tuned.
It's a new day. The scaffold stands ready for mounting with painting in mind.
The scaffold stage is lowered to the six-foot level in readiness for the next eighty-foot pass.
Fast forward about five hours as I make my way across eighty feet of glazing the next six foot wide swath of orange glaze.
You can see forms ( that would be a team of four oxen ) already emerging from out of the golden-hued background tint.
Shot from across the arena in the score-keepers box.
Before I stopped for the day, the scaffold was rolled back in position on the far left-hand side in preparation for the next pass.
