Section 1 of Mural 41 is Finished!

It’s official – on Tuesday, July 20, 2010, a warm, sunny evening, I added my signature to the finished section one of Mural 41.  Dr. Karl Schutz, the founder of the Chemainus Murals project was there to document the moment with photos.  I’ve made some significant changes to the work over the past few weeks, modifying some background, adding a rocky path, putting in indigenous flowers and making changes to the main figures.  I had heard from a number of people who felt the little girl at the centre of the mural, Elizabet, wasn’t “quite right”.  A number of people expressed concern about the angle of her head and, truth be told, I wasn’t completely happy with where she was at.  I’ve since modified her face and all feels right with Elizabet’s world now.  I also made some changes to Dad’s head and legs, added highlights and shadows to all the figures and finished off various and sundry foliage.  The final result is a great lead-in to the big section that I’ll begin later today.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to root me on and all the visitors from around the world who stopped by – I really appreciate your support!
