is a very great part of the art of painting.”
-- Winston Churchill.
When is a painting finished? When they are this large, is it when they are large enough? Is it when you run out of product to put on the panels? Or possibly when you run out of energy? Or, when you are sure they are to big for you to hang them on the wall!
Leonardo Da Vinci said that, "Art is never finished, only abandoned."
We have a lot of people to thank for their help, for without them this would never have happened. Especially Ralph, who did a lot of things, gave us advice, reinforced the panels, and worked out how to install them on the wall. We also appreciated the many folk who found us working, would come over, chat, and make amazing comments on our work. Also, a huge thank you to the two basketall rental teams, one of which moved that large 7.5 ft. wide and 17 ft. high panel to the location at the wall where it would rest till later when the second basketball team on another day helped lift it upright so it could be winched up into place. Thank you all.
Wilma had not yet seen the pictures installed. She had to be in Victoria BC for an appointment on the Sunday of the opening. So, we stopped in on our way to the airport on Saturday to see them up for the first time. There we stood, all alone in the middle of the foyer area gazing up at our work. I do have to say it was a bit of an emotional moment.
Just a minute...where is the lift...I see something right there...you mean we have to get a license to use that? Oh man...a ladder... What...nothing we have will reach that? ....really?
