"Under The Sycamore Tree" Back Drop

I am not sure exactly when or how that it happened.
For years I designed and painted thousands of
LITTLE buttons and earrings. Now, I keep getting large,
very large pieces to paint. Our community theatre
is "The Ritz". Their current production is
"Under The Sycamore Tree" Jim Drake is the director and he asked if I would paint
the background. It is supposed to be the interior of an
ant mound. He had some reference images
otherwise I would have been clueless.
Lots of orange and purple.
Selena painted the floor and the steps.
She did a wonderful job. Other volunteers
painted the orange base coat on the panels.
That made my job a whole lot easier.

It was fun listening to the rehersals as they
practiced under my feet. I spent most of my time
on a 20' ladder (see Jim's blog for May 15th).
The production starts Friday night.
Joe and I have tickets and will go
and check it out.
