Approaching the project I knew it would be un-stretched and also huge. Five by nine feet. Nailed on the perimeter. The piece was painted in oil and halfway through the process I had to move it to the main Gallery to show for crit. It was wet. Luckily, I had a friend there to help me drag it out. I finished the painting on a ladder ten feet high on a gallery wall on campus. Truly a memorable process.
