Happy Dance

The mural is finished. I just need to put the final coat of polyurethane on it but I decided that I could pick and pick at it and always find something that I could fix. I just need to call it done.

I thought it would be fun to show a stage by stage post of the entire process.

Planning always comes first. I created a 8 inch by 30 inch grid so that when I started painting I would have  something to work by.

Prepping the surface.

Each time I painted I would work for about 2 hours at a time. I would guess it is about 40 hours of painting time. Pretty fast actaully. I thought it was going to take twice that amount of time. So hopefully the weather will cooperate this weekend and I will be able to get the poly urethane finished and it will be protected through the long cold northern winter.

Now I need another project…
