Clean up at the end of the day


There were at least 40
Artists on this job.
We occupied most of the
rooms on 2 floors of the
Beach Motel and to get
to  Beau  Rivage we
walked1/3 mile or so.

Here is a house in Ocean
Springs,MI that was
leased for some of us due
to the storm coming in,
the Beach Motel
evacuated everyone, left
us out in the rain
That's Bob,
telling us about
safety and hard
hats.......

We  finished miles and miles of wood paneling.  Glazing forever.  The ceilings were as high as a scissor lift can go.  One person
operated the lift while the other artists held  a row of 6 brushes MacGivered together on a large stir stick.   Brushes were loaded with
umber glaze and the bristles were steadily held onto the surface as the lift descended.  That was the only way I figured you can get
vertical straight lines (wood striations) in those lengths without the stop and go marks.  I was told we looked  like the cirq du soleil.
