Day Two: The Grapefruit Mural, Clearwater, Florida: Adding Layers of Paint

Second day at the two-panel Grapefruit Mural. No refinement as yet; just applied some bright colors. At least they’re pretty blobs now. 😀 I’ll be back at it tomorrow!

Close-up of applying a second layer. I am primarily left-handed, but when it comes to painting I am ambidextrous

Exterior Murals vs. Hurricanes: No Painting in the Forecast for Tomorrow

Thank you, Debby, for deciding that the bulk of your downpour, lightning, and general strong winds were going to occur this weekend (when I’m not at the wall).  I did just check the online weather channel moments ago, however, and it looks like exterior mural painting is not in the forecast for tomorrow either.

Well, the bright side is I can spend Monday morning doing some preliminary sketches for my next mural project.  Always a silver lining, you know?  😀

I hope everyone in the Tampa Bay region is indoors with family and friends, drinking homemade hot chocolate and enjoying some good ol’ reminiscing while gathered around the fireplace.  I’d say that would make for a perfect afternoon.

I’ll update you tomorrow as to whether Hurricane Debby has taken a turn to the west.  If so, then more paint is going on the wall with a photo to follow.

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Hurricane Debby in the Gulf Coast. She’s likely to hang around tomorrow as well, so no exterior mural painting in the immediate forecast.
