Back to painting on walls!
Well, it looks like we are finally moving forward with the mural!! As you can see from this photo I've gridded the drawing so we can transfer it. My criminal background check has cleared, (though Mike's is taking a bit longer...This happened with his passport too...hmmmm). Anyway we both passed the TB test, and their check cleared so it's a go! YAY!
Today is Guy Fawkes Day in the UK, so "Happy Guy Fawkes Day"! After discussing this at dinner last night we all came to the conclusion that we really need a holiday in this counrty that involves setting things on fire! Then again that's probably not such a good idea here in California. Too many people are already trying to burn this place down.
"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
