immunization... on brick: panel #1




well, i'll say it now, and knock wood... i think, THINK, i only have one day of work remaining. downside: i'll miss this piece. i've enjoyed watching it come to fruition. upside: i get my IN studio mondays and tuesdays back (and really, i just want to sleep in... just one day), i get the backseat and trunk of my car back (and i've promised edison a full service interior and exterior professional grooming session for him soon) & most important, hopefull, with the aid of a massage and a visit to the chiropractor, i'll get full use of my spine and muscles back. nevertheless, here are the updates for today. panel #1 (called that because of its location, not chronology), is complete. it's "immunization" (though i've added a few of my own "healthy ideas" in the posters behind the nurse). i like the baby with the pacifier (or "par" as its known and spoken in my daily child care life). once this one was done, i scooted myself all the way down to panel #6 (the polar opposite of #1), where the sidewalk is lower and the mural is up higher and you need a ladder for EVERYTHING! oh dear. my aching shoulders. i could only bear a couple hours on this one before my muscles seized up... BUT, i did manage to paint in all but one of the faces, and those are usually the most time consuming. score one for me. and then, of course, the long shot... look at them all together (well, #1 & 2 are cut out). here's to a good night's rest, an early start and a successful finish! extra special thanks go out to dunkin donuts and the genius behind coconut ice coffee.
