Shared Creation

A project this scale takes many hands (see blog entry below about painting the murals). But some of those hands aren't even local. In fact some of them are in Seattle. Steven Wright, aka "Buckaroo," is building the cobra heads in Seattle with the help of nephew Danny and neighbor Cindy.

Lots of e-mails and phone calls and pix flying through the e world to make this happen right: how big to make the heads, how to light the eyes and mouth, how many amps is that, how will we mount them to the mural frame?? And just in case, bring some green paint and a hacksaw to field fit if necessary...

And just to show you Steven is doing Burning Man right he's rented a panel van to haul all this to the playa, is plotting how to make a big sun shelter for our camp, and trying to squeeze in some work too.

Here are some photos of the cobra heads under construction.
