Acrylic on canvas. 6′ x 36′.
Destroyed. At 36 feet this was my longest painting. That’s me with all the hair at the far end of the painting. The arc is a true catenary arc. It was don by hanging a string from each end and tracing its shadow. I did this painting in about an hour and a half. That included photo shots by Bill Roseberry of the painting in progress. The yellow and red stripes are done with a 10″ paint roller on a broom handle. So I’m guessing it took about 2 or 3 minutes to roll the yellow U shape and about a minute & 1/2 to roll the red L shape. The white was done by brush so it must have been about an hour for that.

I think it must have been Roy Palmer who shot this slide. I didn’t own a wide-angle lens at the time. BR
It was a 28 or 24 mm. could have been Roy’s
