End the Year Painting

In one gigantic push, I sent Christmas cards, bought and wrapped presents, and picked up tons of leaves in my yard. With the Holidays winding down, I am closing out 2007 by finishing up the backdrop painting I started 3 months ago.

The west wall of the backdrop has many more trees painted on it now. I assume that the view of much of the new painting will be blocked by 3-D scenery once construction has advanced to that stage.

There will be derricks, shop buildings, and stone piles in front of the backdrop at Cove Quarry.

There will be a hill with a derrick on it here at Meridian Quarry.
