WORK IN PROGRESS:
CANAL SQUARE APARTMENTS
Well, here we go.. I am going to try weekly updates to the site.
Right now, I am working on my 4th and final mural project for Canal Square Apartments in downtown Indianapolis. I am about 3 days into this and it is going well- just slowly! I can only work on this wall on the weekends because daylight is a big issue. Without daylight, this lobby is pretty dark!
We started this 4 lobby project a couple of years ago with the PACERS wall, then a COLTS wall and INDY 500 wall (all of which you can see in the MURALS section of the site!) This wall is in the style of our local AAA basesall team- the INDIANAPOLIS INDIANS.
This one is the 2nd largest of the bunch.. at 17' x 8' it is definitely requiring a lot of paint!
I did some pretty indepth research for this wall's design. The INDIANS have a long history in baseball with some HALL OF FAMERS to their credit. The left side of the wall depicts 2 of them in particular, GROVER CLEVELAND ALEXANDER and HARMON KILLEBREW. Then the middle has the entry gate archway at the ballpark. The right side has a couple of current day ballplayers giving eachother a victorious high-five. Along the bottom of the wall will be INDIANAPOLIS in big red & white letters.
These are the progress pics I took yesterday. This one is going to be my masterpiece!!
Both of my cameras ran out of juice when I was down there (My KINGDOM for a AA BATTERY!!) so all I could do is take the pictures with my phone. They don't look great, but I promise to have better pics posted next week!
