In the spring of 2004, I started the daunting task of painting on a 120 x 20 foot blank wall space at the Antioch Company's Eighth Avenue Facility in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The only criteria was that I was to somehow bring the outdoors in. Because the wall was divided into four sections, the idea of depicting a complete landscape showing all four seasons sparked my imagination. I started by drawing a basic outline of the main landscape elements (the four trees, the lake and the horizon line) on four 8.5 x 11 inch pieces of paper. Next I made transparancies of these drawings and with an overhead projector, I traced the lines onto the cement block wall. Using acrylic exterior housepaint, three different size brushes, a Genie scissors lift, and a whole lot of determination, I set about bringing the outdoors in. The above image is the mural at about half-way point. Since the mural has been completed, production tables and manufacturing equipment occupy the foreground so there is no way to get a clear photo of the wall. It's hard to say whether the mural is complete but I stopped painting in August of 2005. I figured enough is enough, for now. You can use the photoshow controller to see more views.
