Within the state of South Carolina, I find myself in the north western area and at the foot of the mountains.

Tigerville is the address here, and the k-12 school rests within many open acres of farmland. The property is gated and isolated from other homes that might be nearby. Some houses are visible in the mountains that set the backdrop of the school gymnasium. The gym is the canvas for me this time rather than a barn, and 2 sections in particular on the outside walls are my canvas.

The artwork here is not visible until you take a stroll to the soccer and baseball fields, but the building acts as an overlook to the park-like venues below. Several cold days kicked off the painting, but today was most pleasant and much work was completed on the shield panel. I hope to have the entire project including the interior paintings behind the hoops completed by the weekend. A festival will be held here on Saturday, and I am to give a few speeches on my work.
