While the trip to Hopkinsville Kentuckey was a long one, it was enjoyable. It was my first time to travel through Louiville and I was able to see Slugger field all lit up for a baseball game, and the stadium where the cardinals play college football. From the highway the city was stunning.
I arrived at the New Work Fellowship Church in Hopkinsville Kentuckey (www.newworkfellowship.com) and found a solid barn ready for a sign. The barn faces west and is visible from the 68 by-pass. It was very windy weather, but wow it was like summer! I was able to paint well into the night and gave up around 12:30 am so I could take advantage. The barn was painted with a new basecoat and the artwork was finished on a Sunday morning before the first services began at the church.
As a side note, this is the first time painting a barn that I almost stepped on a snake. It startled me for sure, but after a few moments I calmed down and we sized each other up.
I was thinking I did not want to deal with him later, so I grabbed one of my painter extension poles out of the truck, got a hold of the snake in the mid section and catapolted the thing out into the feild. It was a sight to see it rotate through the air alright.
Meanwhile the service at the Hopkinsville New Work Fellowship Church was great. They have a real talented group of praise and worship singers and it felt a bit like a christian music concert. One singer in particular was a real treat and I would guess could sell some records on his own.
