The Sweetest Project!! Part 1

Hopeful poses.....
The Wee Italian Sits in Front on the Projector, Supervising The Project

I am currenty working on a HUGE project for The Newfoundland Chocolate Company on Duckworth Street in St.John's. They have commissioned me to paint a huge billboard/mural for the side of their building. There are 10, 8 foot by 4 foot panels that will all be put together. It is taking up most of my time this month and all of our living room. SO funny. SHE  is in charge of moving the heavy panels, working the projector, keeping the cats away and everything else in the world that doesn't have to do with this project. So far, she is doing great, except for the cat keeping away part.
It is pretty difficult to be working on such a huge scale and most of the work has to be done standing up or standing on a chair. As much as I am enjoying it, I will be VERY excited to see it finished, installed at its home!
Now that I have found the computer, I will post my progress nearly every day.
SHE is doing a terrific job cheering me on with what seems like the biggest painting ever, since time began! Hooray!
