Last week the floor went in at the dental office, so I wasn't able to do any work on the mural until Wednesday. My trusty intern, Allison, was there along side me, keeping me going. I asked her to paint the background for Africa, to do the drum and costume as well. This girl is amazing, and I don't know where I'd be without her. I painted most of France (I think she's my favorite, so far), India's costume, and started the American boy. He frustrated me hugely, as most American boys do, so I need to make some adjustments.
We began to name these little ones, as they have started to come to life and have little personalities. Really, it's fun to spend my day with them. I'll have to reveal the names at the end, so stay tuned!I'm back to work again all day tomorrow, likely for another 6-8 hours or so. That's hard work to have one hand in the air all day as construction-ers are blasting all around me. I left with a killer headache, but the evening ended well with a dinner in Carlsbad with some friends from home (SLC) where we spent 2 1/2 hours laughing and cajoling about old times. That's a good long day.
PS! If you haven't given your ideas for our Name the Student Art Blog contest, now's the time. I'll be revealing the winner and the prize tomorrow!
