Finished this class today, the mural measures over 6 x 4ft.
They'll all be installed next week.
There was a tremendous storm mid-afternoon- see the torrents beyond the window.. the columns were an imperador marble class by Cait Whitson last week.
This week, while we were painting the sheep in the field, Linda Self was guiding a class in achieving a tremendous plaster finish on some massive columns. The finish involves 6 layers done over a week, with a buffed was finish applied last.

John Paul II Mural, Finished



Yesterday, we finished the 7 x 4.5 ft mural of John Paul II . Everyday, we were visited and complimented by parishioners, Monsignor Parlante, as well as other DPAP students taking breaks from their classes. We had a wonderful time; especially after John Paul's portrait turned out SO well.. we painted that on the 2nd day, after spending the first day painting smaller versions.
Everyone is looking forward to seeing it finally installed.
