DAY 14 - FRESCO FINISHED!!
The work of painting the fresco is now finished and Stuart has returned to California for a much deserved rest. He and Gerardo found it was more work than they expected. They worked well together and we are very happy with the result!
Now we will begin the re-landscaping of the patio. Plants that are pictured in the lower boarder of the fresco will be planted in front of their images. The real plants will blend into the painted backdrop.
Orchids will be hung from the painted tree branches. Ed has a hundred or so orchids, most of which are native to Oaxaca. When we travel Ed has me stop the car when he sights an orchid and climb the tree to get it for him.
