And the work begins...
What a change from
the blank, white walls! The following pictures document
the development of the
Woodward Mill Media
Center mural in the
of it's development.
Enjoy as you follow
along with the progress!
At 14' tall, these walls were a challenge!
I spent 2 days atop
my 6' scaffoldingset at it's
highest setting. The sky was done
with a large roller for the
blue, and a 3" roller and
to get back to a lower altitude!
Taking three days, I worked a
combination of green, black, brown, vegas
gold, and white onto the surface with
a 3" roller and 2" brush in combination. This antique barn was constructed
in a day, and is made up of
red, brown, black, white, and vegas gold
right side of the barn, but have some
finishing touches still to add!
After that I'll be adding a
covered bridge, several trees, and
some surprise woodland animals!
Here's a shot of that completed
barn and silo...plus an inviting
shade tree equipped with a swing!
a covered bridge over the creek!These trees are perfect for climbing!
Perhaps they'll make a good
home for a bird or a squirrel!
That's a big change for
the Media Center's blank
walls several weeks ago!
Here's the big picture so far!
All that's left are a
couple of trees, some flowers, and
some various woodland animals!Here come the critters!
The fire alarm had to be
incorporated into the scene somehow...
and I didn't think the Fire Marshall
would want me to paint over it!
We'll see what he says about this!
Before advertising...and after!
I actually had one teacher
who was unfamiliar with
the "See Rock City" slogan!
This fawn still has her spots...
This grey squirrel has found a spot
to relax and enjoy a snack.
Here's the wall most of the kids have been waiting for!
The mascot for Woodward Mill
Elementary is the Bear Cub!
These guys have been sketched on the
wall for weeks! Now they live in the
tree by the main enterance to the
Media Center greeting all who come and go!
Those are azaleas under the
bullitin board and will soon
house a humming bird...
One more tree...
and another fire alarm
There's a deer family
by the pond in
Phase I complete!
Wow! What a fun
project! I look forward
to revisiting the scene in
the fall as the woods, and
it's creatures, take over the
remaining half of the media center!
