This was a crazy day! I built the canvas and painted the painting in my art studio. In order to get the painting, 8 feet tall and 10 feet wide, out of my art studio, I had to dis-assemble it to get it through the door!
Then, I had a team ready to help me re-build the canvas and install it on-site at Google!
I can not thank my team enough. THANK YOU Kim, Dan and Cesar!
The installation is not a one-woman show. It took us 8 hours to re-build the frame, stretch the canvas and hang it on the wall!
At one point, to hang it on the earthquake proof hangers, my friend Kim, who thankfully is very thin, had to climb between the wall and the painting to hang the wire on the hangers!
At the end of the day, we were exhausted and proud. The painting, Native Grandeur, now hangs in the Library at Two Rincon! What a thrill!
