The GHC mural was finished last week. We lucked out on a week long stretch of warm sunny weather, unusual for Anchorage in September. All that remains is an application of an anti-graffiti coat and the ribbon cutting ceremony next Monday Sept 24th. I really enjoyed painting this mural and each time I undertake such a project, I learn something new. Unlike my studio practice which is more intuitive, mural painting requires a strong focus on the design and a strict adherence to this design. A clear plan, well defined process and tried and tested choice of colors is necessary.
Here are a few images of the work in progress and the final piece. Many thanks to Graham Dane, my husband and creative partner with his help painting this mural.
