After two and a half months the wind finally caused a communication breakdown. I am actually surprised the painting lasted that long! But I had hoped it would last all winter.
It took almost four hours to take everything apart and clean up. Quite a few people came by and expressed how sad they were to see the painting go down. I have really enjoyed this project! It has been so nice to work outside, with the ocean nearby, the wind, the sounds, and most of all, the nice, friendly and positive people I have met. Thank you!
Now I am thinking about another place where I can have the painting. I want it to be outside all winter… I will have to do some minor repair work and then it goes up again.
