Sam Gilliam, the designer of the backdrop. She’s talking to me about different colors and squiggly lines. Squiggly= technical term for Sendak’s leaf lines.

Patching up one of the hard pieces. Taking a long time to dry though so I don’t know if I’ll get it done by four today, as planned.

So I’m happy to say that I got a job as a contractor for The Mcnay Museum of Art here in San Antonio. For the next few weeks I am working as a scenic painter restoring the hard scenery for the opera For the Love of Oranges. It was designed by Maurice Sendak. I will also paint a previously unrealized backdrop (by Sendak as well) to go in the exhibit with the hard pieces. This is a huge project for so many reasons. It’s going to take a lot of work to complete, and I hope I can do it justice, but I’m so happy for the opportunity that I can hardly think about anything else. More pictures to come as the project develops! P.S. sorry for the picture quality. These are large pieces and I am tiny…

You comfy there Jack?

Woo 1000th instagram pic. The blurry look is not a filter, but rather my phone camera deciding to give up on life.
