First challenge was to make a sketch.
Rick Ewart is the owner of the place. He used to be a park ranger in Blue Springs. Also Rick has an education in art criticism. I was so afraid to paint for him.
I should show at the same time the cave where springs are beginning and the place where the creek connects with St. John’s river. In reality we can’t see all that at the same time. But somehow I managed to paint this.
The mural contains a lot of details that must be drawn absolutely precisely. Professional way to reach this level of accuracy is to use the projector.
But the wall is outside. I tried to start working at 5 am, but at 6 am I had to stop because of sunlight. So I had to work in the night.
