San Luis Obispo I Madonnari Festival, September 2008
We did an original image in San Luis Obispo of our niece Catie having a tea party with her teddy bear Oso and her stuffed pug, Elizabeth. We tried to set up the painting's perspective so that people could join Catie in the picture.
Wayne transfers the image to the pavement.
Cheryl started working on Catie's face, while Wayne painted Oso the teddy bear.
Catie looked a little ill after Cheryl underpainted her face with greens to get the skin tones to look right.
She recovered quickly. We were amused by the sponsor we were matched with--not exactly tea party material. So we told people that Catie was actually drinking Red Bull.
Wayne finished the other tea party attendees and started on furniture.
Wayne's brother David drove up from Lompoc to help us out.
He helped Wayne paint the furniture.
Sometimes this work requires that the painter balance precariously on top of tables.

Cheryl and Wayne at work on Saturday afternoon.
Sunday noon: Wayne built the seatwall while Cheryl "planted" wooly thyme around the patio.
We recruited Cheryl's mom Lois to help us add the lawn around the front.
Almost done! Cheryl added daylilies around the seatwall by the lawn.
