Movable Mural for Webster House by Shirley Perry

Hi Linda!

I'm finally sending you some photos of the work-in-progress mural for the Webster House. I've learned how to sand, prime and paint the plywood to get ready for my mural! It's been interesting :-) and I learned a lot. I'm also glad I didn't sand in my house!

I've attached some photos. I still have to finish my quotes around some of the "paintings" and in the general space will be a quote that's very positive.

I've been working from 7 a.m. until it has gotten too hot lately. In fact, today, the paint dried so fast I couldn't even paint a letter in a quote because it dried too fast and wouldn't flow nicely on it.

I'll keep you posted.

When this is all done, Anthony Williams said he'd help me seal it. Then I'll get it back somehow.

I've learned a lot about stenciling! It took quite a bit of time to sketch out a quote and then arrange it around my painting so it looks even. The size of each sport paintings are  21" wide and 15" tall. I used my computer to sketch out my idea and see what spacing to use to make sure everything is "even/lined up." I will have final touch ups when the all the quotes are on the mural. With my first cup of coffee, I'm out painting!!! What a way to start the days lately!!!

Hope you are enjoying your summer.

I hope to see you soon,
