A coat of paint

I've got a coat of oil paint everywhere (except the roof- TODO) so it's getting to a fun part - colouring the leaves on the grass and trees - and the sky - and I cab start adding a few people and birds and animals

Tree continued

Now I have a coat of paint on most of the largest wall but there's still a lot to do

This is the tree so far - still pretty sketetal and a lot of the ground and background to go - not to mention leaves and people and a bit of Newtown

I continued the branches out to the edge of the wall, and around onto the next ones a bit

Figtree buttresses - waiting room mural Day1

 I finally got a bit of paint on the wall in the waiting room/foyer. This is based on the beautiful fig in the cemetery on Church St

Fig tree

I'm about to start painting a wraparound mural in the waiting room at the Mission, starting with some trees. I've been doing some thinking about it and taking photos of parks and gardens over the past couple of weeks and I'm hoping to get the first few marks on the wall this afternoon

Photos by Tim Cole

Thankyou Tim for the beautiful photos - now Pastor Brian and  I might make a bit of merch with the larger resolution shots these were generated from.

Tim Cole shooting the mural

I finally got someone to take photos of the mural without all sorts of stuff blocking parts of the view.

Thanks to Tim for coming in and taking the shots, and to Pastor Brian Unterrheiner and the volunteers who helped move the piano off and back onto the stage

Once I have the photos I'll postthem on the blog somewhere

Back to the Mission

I'm coming back to the Mission to do some more painting, starting with a few additions at the periphery of the main panel, then perhaps to start on something new.

I'm also going to try to organise some decent photography of the last supper and the peoples and volunteers panel - it all looks great in daylight to the eye because of the light sweeping through from the skylights, but cameras - over and under expose areas hugely - all the shots of the whole panel on this blog I had to monkey around with levels on sections of the photo

If you have camera and lights and want to take some shots let me know
