Go Big or Go Home! (new photo piecing commission)

I got a lot of positive feedback from my show @ The Junction this spring... what i heard more than once was the desire to see the work bigger... so my mantra was "go BIG or go home" so I ordered some 4 foot x 4 foot surfaces... little did i know that i was about to get a commission for a 4 foot x 8 foot photo piecing for the lobby of a new building in Davidson, NC.  So that work has begun and here is where i am today.... will post progress as it happens... so much fun!!
here is a photo of the finished piece installed in Davidson! only two months later! whew!
