Wally's Choice Painting Update
The Wally's Choice oil continues. I'll post a pic of the completed canvas by Monday.
Had a chance while I was painting to meet David Evert, organizer of the ongoing '1,000 years of Minnesota History' mural project in Wadena, Minnesota. Each mural is painted in the shape of a puzzle piece and then installed on various buildings throughout Wadena; when completed the project will constitute the world's largest picture puzzle. Perhaps when David's project is completed we can coax the talking Paul Bunyan at the nearby Brainerd This Old Farm to amble over and terrorize the picturesque town of Wadena in a misguided although hilarious attempt to reconstruct the entire puzzle in the local Wal-Mart Supercenter parking lot. Watch Paul lose his patience and use his mighty axe to make the &%$# puzzle fit together.
You can help fund the mural project by taking a tour of the Alley Arts studio the next time you pass through Wadena.
