Art will Not Hurry

Sunday, December 20th, 2009

I spent all day at Altu’s restaurant with the basketweave painted stripe as my goal. I made six possible color scheme mock-ups on paper, and we taped them to the wall to see what we thought.

We had to turn the lights to the settings intended for after construction is done. And in the end, none of my mock-ups really did the trick. Sigh.

However, I was also scheduled to paint a stripe on the wall at “chair rail” level, and we did figure out what color that should be. Funny, but we had not considered that particular color even a few days ago, but I’m glad the option occurred to us today.

SO: I painted one horizontal stripe, freehand, around the entire restaurant this evening. By the time I was done, Doug Berch was on break from his performance. I sat with him, and Cynthia, and Chris and Deb. Good folks all in the music community here in town. It was great to spend a little time with them.

The good news? We did some brainstorming and I think we are very close to the final design of the stripe. I’ll do another mock-up on Monday morning and we will see how that goes.

I have a good feeling that we can make a decision and start moving forward on Monday. I do have two appointments that day but I should be able to work a good number of hours. Let us hope for the best.
