504 sq feet of brick completely covered in paint!




here it is! finished! wow. this is the largest single mural i have ever painted and i couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. i love it. i don't however, love the fact that i can't turn my head to the left at all. at all.

the final panel was: "senior services" and there they are... seniors... being "serviced". ok, so i'll admit that this one is a little more vague in narrative, but they have a cat and i think they look happy & healthy and really, isn't that what matters? i love its purple-y-ness. this is also the panel that gets my full signature and imagine my glee when mid name i turn to see katie, isadora and sweetie estelle... at THEEEEE MOMENT! such a cheering section.

so yes, this is the last of the health department mural posts. i will go by today and seal the paintings with a milky, gluey, coating that supposedly resists (or at least makes it easier to clean) graffiti and other ick.

then, tomorrow evening, after work, the long awaited... massage! i've opted for deep tissue and i doubt i will regret it.

switching gears a little... now that mural time is behind us for a while, i will be re-focusing my attention on knitting, and collaging. i have a few new ideas too, so those of you who come out to Bazaart at the American Visionary Art Museum will not be disappointed. til next time! xoxo danamarie
