We have started. Last weekend was the design weekend for the mural and was wonderful that everyone stayed with the process and all the discomfort because we have ended up with a spectacular plan. We will be down in the square painting the mural on the October 16, 17, 18 weekend so come and see us. We won't be able to have volunteers helping, since we are already 6 people working on 4 panels, but would love the moral support and encouragement ( and maybe food... )
Here is a photo of the team in front of the stairwell where the images will be installed.
Joanne Thomson is a watercolorist who works on paper and canvas. She is best known for her images of the BC forest and coast. These strong images are created with a gentle spiritual approach to art making. However, her mason jar images are moving into a prominence that is displacing her earlier work and opening up new avenue for messaging in her art.
