The blank canvas! We left the wall pink (from our cacti installation) as we wanted to reduce wasting unnecessary paint. Clever Alana used the undercoat to blend into her artwork.

Progress... up to this photo, 4 hours of non stop painting!
We decided to only use existing paint for this mural, in our effort to support the reuse + recycle vibes of Earth Day 2019.
Re-purposing left over paint from the floors of my store, re-working the pink undercoat and the last drops of pink in the bucket. It did mean that Alana had to plan her idea a bit more carefully but it also meant that we walked a little lighter.
I've always believed that small actions have ripple effects, and it all starts with each person doing something small and thoughtful for a collective impact to make a difference.
Gorgeous reflections, art happening all around us.
