Cars of beauty:
Nice '55 Ford
For Saturday’s stuff:
Everyone has seen the giant murals on buildings and the neat ‘graffiti’ on box cars. Besides the talent, have you ever thought of the amount of paint it takes to do one of those murals 50 feet high and 100 feet wide?
wonder how many cans of spray paint it takes to ‘decorate’ a box car with some
of that ‘neat graffiti?
Well I have a wall I am going to cover. I painted it the other day for moisture resistance. I played with a ghost Indian on a horse, looked a little silly but it was fun.
Soooo I rounded up some colors of latex paint. I had about 4, did some mixing and started on that wall the size about 9x 14 feet. This is what I came up with:
Then I decided to make a Coke commercial since our son Matt works for Coke now. Stella’s GG (the other Great Grand ma also works for Coke.
Then Sherry & I decided to make a last commercial before I cover the mural with sheetrock. LOL
It took about 3 hours and over a gallon of paint, BUT it was fun.
MY neighbor tells me her daughter did a 3 story building in Hickory, NC. I gotta go see it.
PS: Some folks take time to paint greetings cards, I know Jilda does, down in Ricks world. But this is our granddaughter Megan's work, SWEET!
