539 e. 21st... signed, sealed, delivered

you're looking at: 84 hours over 25 days. dozens of gallons of paint. and lots of muscle strain.
well, i put the last coat of the anti-graffiti sealant on yesterday and in so doing, OFFICIALLY, sealed the deal on the mural at 539. it'll be a while before the scaffold comes down and i can show you what it looks like behind all that metal. once the scaffold comes down, i will need to go back over with an extension ladder (EEK!) to paint 4 one-inch x 2 inch patches of bare wall where the scaffold was connected to the wall, 2 levels up. Until then, i thought i'd share the details no one will ever be able to really see... unless they were really, really tall.
So, starting at the top and working our way down... here's "Our Roots, Our Community".
