winamac: mural day 5

the final product (kinda)
ah, complete.  mostly.  save for one small element i'll add in later.  but really.  it's done.  mindy came with me to winamac today to finish up the quilt mural.  we had fewer volunteers, but that was good for today, because everything that was still to paint, was at the top of the mural.  mindy and the volunteers "stitched" in the rest of the panels, while i finished out the imagery.  it was a lot of up and down the scaffold and the ladder.  we went through 6 cans of black spray paint, 8 paint markers, portions from 12 other spray cans, portions from 12 buckets, and a half bucket of primer (all are approximations, of course).  the mural however, is complete and it looks great.  i hope that the people of winamac will enjoy having it in their town, and it's something that will bring a big and interested smile to locals, passers-by and visitors alike.  we are going to have the official unveil on july 21st during the 'power from the past' show.  also tippy's pizza and beer will be having their grand opening and will have the street closed off and a beer tent out front.  should be a fun dedication.  stay tuned for more info on the unveil, but you can go check the mural out now.  it's done!

seems to be most people's favorite panel.  we added in the flag and the stars this morning.
