Salish Games Mural: June 8, 2007

Well, I painted from 9am until 4:30pm with a 1.5 hr break today. I helped a few other women paint the Salish games mural. Some of the local children pitched in after getting out of school early for their summer vacation. A boy visiting from Arkansas helped out, too.
We had painted the background May 17th (see my posting) and worked on the figures Tuesday, June 5th, with some 6th-graders, and finished it today.
This was a great collaborative project. It's wonderful to see each person's individual marks come together to make a terrific piece of art for the whole community to enjoy.
