Lili Payne and I just came home from the Keene, NH Walldog Festival. Here are some photos of the mural that we led. If you do not know about the Walldogs, it is amazing. Over 200 artists come to one small town to paint 16 public murals. Folks from all over the world. The feedback from the town was amazing! We could not keep track of how many people told us how amazing we were and what a wonderful thing we were doing for their town! It really was a heartwarming experience. Next year’s festival is in Olney, IL- come to join us if you can.
The Walldogs is such a special group. I have been a member for 7 years or so and after going my first time I was hooked. This year I was project lead on the Keene State College wall along with co-lead Nate Grice. We pulled off a monster 1000 sqft mural 60 ft up in the air with only access being two aerial lifts (4 people max could work at one time). The owl is 32 feet across and was fun to paint. Because of weather issues we essentially only had 2 days to paint it so I was unable to wander as much as I would have liked….we had to treat it more like a job. We have a meet scheduled for High Springs, FL in late March 2022…I am leading that meet so pop on our Facebook Page…like it, follow it…and come down to join us! If you haven’t…you really need to join us…it is a great learning experience and fellowship.
