Southeast Whitesburg Mural--07 Belinda Mason Bldg

Today (Wednesday June 24) I got an excellent start on painting the Belinda Mason Building. This is the newest of the Whitesburg campus's three buildings, and the one closest to my heart as it contains my lovely office. It is also the building with the most interesting scenic detail surrounding it. The picture shows the end result of today's labors.

I am finding it extremely challenging to remain standing for five hours painting. As I move lower on the painting I'm sure that I will be able to sit for some of the work, but almost all the work on the buildings and hills requires me to stand.

Does anyone know a place (brick and mortar or on-line) to purchase large numbers of popsicle sticks or even better tongue depressors? We've been saving the ones we use from our lime and lemon bars (low fat summer time treats), but I'm running through those much too quickly. I suppose I could switch to plastic knives and spoons, but I just prefer the aesthetic of wood.

It looks _really_ good so far! Standing for 5 hours wouldn't be easy for anybody if they weren't used to it. Most craft stores like Michael's sell big bags of popsicle sticks or tongue depressors.
