|Drawing in the lines on wall 2.|
The sun was blazing down like a champ. I honestly enjoyed it and at the same was trying to escape it.
I started drawing in the lines on the alley wall of Caroline and my left arm and face was getting all the sun. Every time I had to sharpen my pencils, I would turn around so that the right side of my body would get some sun. I knew the end result would be a very strange farmer's tan.
I worked for about 2 hours solo, then was joined my assistant Joe Walker. Later in the day, friends and artists Alex Barber and Lizbeth Ortiz stopped by to say hi and take photos. Oh yeah - they had stopped by on Saturday as well. Thanks guys!
As soon as Joe left, Germain Quintanilla, friend/art teacher showed up to help. And...Tina McPherson, who will be part of the Lonestar Explosion this upcoming weekend offered a couple of hours of assistance.
I'm glad they both showed up because I was getting to the breaking point. My body was ready for rest, but their presence kept me pushing to work a couple more hours.
Throughout the day, I was visited by this bee. Yes, a bee. It just kept showing up to buzz around my face about every 15-20 minutes.
I think the colors from mural have been attracting a lot of insects. Strange, but true.
And...we had this awesome visit from a dragonfly. It decided to hang out on the mural for a good twenty minutes.
This sucker was huge...and beautiful.
Here are all the pics I took.
