So we came to Haiti & painted a mural (or two)


So, Stephanie explained why we have been a bit delayed (in our concept of time) in painting the mural.  You see, it is Carnival right now, which means that when we went to buy the paint on Tuesday, all businesses were closed so that they could celebrate.  Dr Morquette forgot about that since he does not participate in Carnival, so our painting folks got a lovely tour of Petionville & a local grocery store on Tuesday, but no paint.  However!  Yesterday, we hit the jackpot!  As you can see below, we were able to find the perfect paint, and due to Mark's mixing skills, beautiful colors resulted.

Mark, Kate & Leslie got the outline on the wall, and then started organizing, mixing and planning, and went to town.  Literally, since the mural is of a funky town.  :)

The kids had an awesome time painting...this one was in the boys dorm, and today we will be starting a mural in the girls dorm, so that is why you see all boys in the photos.  Today, we get the ladies involved.

Now check out the pics below!  I have been told there are some final details to be added...I think it looks glorious right now, but, that is why I am not in charge of the painting.  :)


Paint, paint & more paint!  And brushes, and cloths, and more...

And, last but not least, the (almost!) finished product:

We will have more pictures soon of the final, FINAL product!
