The painters arrived today at the Palmer Courthouse, ready to paint the upper walls in preparation for installation of my artwork on Thursday, November 11, Veterans Day, while the building is closed. This scissor lift will be used to access the high walls to paint and for the installation. I am anxious to get the project out of my studio and put on display. This will culminate more than six months of planning, fabricating and production.
While I was at the courthouse I walked down the north hallway to see artist Cammie Walker’s gorgeous mosaic. Here is a photo of her commission. It is interesting that the art selection committee chose the subject of the Sandhill Cranes for both of our pieces.
