The lower register taking shape
Am nearing the bottom of the mural. I should be finished with this biggest and tallest panel within a couple of days—which is good since it is scheduled to be inaugurated on Friday! Two 12-hour days in a row...averaging about 8 per day for more than three weeks. Am tired but satisfied that it is as inspired and interesting as I can make it. The bottom part is about a chain of influence, social on the left, spiritual on the right. Images of the family seem to have emerged more than I expected, but it is fine in the context of a school dedicated to the transmission of artistic knowledge and the maturity/individuation of the individual through such learning.
