This morning I started going through all of the postcard photos I have of the hotel, each one is different, and I found the one I remembered seeing with ladies on the porch and hanging flowers, which I will be adding later, but then I noticed in that shot the bricks in the building supports, something I couldn't see in the one I was working from. So I started on them...it adds color and depth and is a definite improvement I think! I caught my stool in the foreground of the photo...that round brown thing is not a part of the painting!

The first level of the hotel has proven to be a GREAT challenge....but finally I am starting to see it come together. I can't tell you how many times I have changed it! There are a lot of details to do; I am going to do my best to not get lost in them and remember it is a mural, not a smaller fine painting!

Back from Vermont....and close encounters with a bear and a great horned owl...provided me with a lot to draw from for paintings and a lift for my spirit!
Returned to the mural very early this morning, to get to it before the heat of the day set in....I made a lot of corrections on the left side (more still need to be fixed) and started in with the right side a little...
