mural

I did this to myself. I know from experience that high contrast images with large shadow spaces make good stencil art and those comprised of thin lineart not so much. Also, it's obviously less of a pain to cut by hand.

But, I have determined that this is exactly what the last of the [Baker Institute] murals needs so it is exactly what I'm going to do; a large image that you can sort of make out from a distance but one that doesn't at all take away from all the layers of other content on the surface. This will make up the final addition to the wall, and after that it's just a matter of final touch ups here and there.

Oh wait, and some ceramic tiles :–)

Wall 2 is catching up with Wall 1, which I consider barely half complete. Which leaves me the month of September to finish them up. Will probably devote 1 week to mostly finishing each, and one week to the 2 additional walls I have to do (pretty straightforward those), with the final week of September left for final touches.

Tomorrow's tasks: – Modify posters and pasteups. – Wall 1 and 2: Wheat-paste posters – Wall 1 and 2: Take measurements for 3rd layer of art – Wall 1 and 2: Assorted scribbles and doodles

After a couple of 6-hour days on the murals, I was near destroyed (still forget it's been a long time since I was in my 20's), so I'm back to 4-hours a day now, leaving me enough time in the day to exercise, prep meals, spend a little time with moony, and plan the next day ahead, in addition to some prep work at the studio.

Speaking of, plan for tomorrow:

  • Wall 1: Finish up green bar
  • Wall 1: Finish blue column
  • Wall 2: Paint Blue Bar
  • Wall 2: Paint White Camo
