Rain Delay

Half-way through the painting of the Central Park
panel we encountered our first rain delay.

Kaylee and KT working before the rain hit.

We decided to take a break when the lightning started.

The peanut gallery was quiet.

Great sidewalk drawings of Topeka

In addition to the new Central Park panel going up at the Great Wall, lots of passersby take advantage of the new smooth sidewalk in front of the mural to add to an ever changing gallery of sidewalk art. Yesterday, an extended
family of ten related young people created these pastel on toned concrete sketches.

Central Park Panel - part II: Community Painting Days

On June 28th and 29th, the community
was invited to paint
on the new Central Park
panel. More than fifty people stopped by.

We started with the background colors.

The weather cooperated.

Kay Conn painted Kay Conn.

KT assisted visiting painters from the Villages.

So far so good.
