We understand that doing public art
in a public place involves public interaction.
The public becomes part of the process

We've noticed that
people are fascinated
to watch a wall being
transformed by a mural.

It's a novelty to see
a huge picture being
painted with rollers and
brushes on long poles.
We've discovered
rollers to be remarkably
good drawing tools.
On edge they produce
a fine line, flat they
spread paint quickly.
Telescoping poles allow
us enough distance
from the wall to make
relative measurements
by eye.
In talking to people
we learn what interests them.
Many are surprised
to see two painters
working on one picture.
Most are intrigued to watch
such a large picture
being painted so quickly.
Since two are working
progress need not halt
when one stops to talk.
