I had not quite realized where the theater was until I saw the picture of the caboose -- I rode the Santa Fe Southern back when they had passenger excursions, so I was able to say I've ridden an honest-to-goodness mixed train (passenger and freight cars) and seen a "flying switch" (a relatively dangerous freight-switching maneuver the SFS used to get cars into a facing-point siding). And got quite a sunburn, too. My wife (who grew up in Los Alamos) warned me about that high-desert sun, even on a cool day.

Pugh.
Thought you meant our boy Justin Pugh, who's been looking great so far this season!

Hmm. Blue tape appears to be a feature of this work. ;)

That is some truly amazing trompe l'oeil work. It looks just like scaffolding!

I'm excited to see the finished result. Very interesting. If I weren't all the way in Illinois, I'd've come. Seems like you're having a lot of fun with it, too. Good!

I would love to see, but I'm too far away from you, so I've to wait for the photos. 😒

I see a problem with his preparation. His paint is never going to stick to the oily black stone of the Cocteau.

I love trompe l'oeil. So exciting! When I can make it out West again I will definitely have to come visit.

Now, you say he's "installing" the mural. That means he's already painted it on panels and is affixing them to the outside wall?

Art
I love this kind of art (the cracked open buildings with incredible faux contents). Fantastic style. Great choice Mr. Martin.

I once wallpapered my basement with faux stone paper but you have me beat, ha!

I can't wait to see the results.

Hopefully my wife and I can make it out to see the unveiling. Based off his previous work, it's a good bet that it looks amazing.
