The Making of a Mural

Finished Mural

Preparation of the surface began Friday morning of the CBF-LA Spring conference in 2009,
which was held in Lake Providence. Friday night the design was penciled in with aid of a projector.
On Saturday morning painting of the outlines began.

Gallons and gallons of paint were used, most of it donated by local volunteers.
Not all of it landed on the wall.

The mural started in the minds of school students who were  asked to draw pictures of their community--what they liked and what would make it better. Artist Kate Murphy left below, 
then took these images and combined them in a quilt like design.
