Painting a Mural in Freezing Weather





Here I am painting a mural in 2006. It was 15 degrees above zero - so I wore hunting gear to keep warm. Also, I painted with oils directly onto the wall. Doctors in the neighborhood kept coming by to check my pulse. This piece was called "Gravitas." 


Little kids would run up to me and ask, "Are you the mural lady?"
How cool is that?


Finished product.


I love glazes. The blue paint was so deep, you could see it from the freeway.

Have fun this week,
