Talent Round About Construction
The city is having a round about constructed on one of the main thoroughfare in Talent. Since it is Saturday, I thought it would be fun to go down to the construction site and draw something. I was attracted to a big tractor parked in front of a “Sidewalk Closed” sign.
Naturally, since the sidewalk was closed, I sat and drew right outside the construction zone. I sat under a tree and got down to business.
Funny thing, several people ignored the “sidewalk closed” sign and walked through the construction zone. Because no one was working, I suppose all felt it was OK/fine.
One lady did think that I was the construction police and asked if she could walk on the sidewalk. She wanted to know if she would be arrested if she did. I told her I wasn’t sure.
Speaking of getting down to business, I kept getting myself into trouble today. Problems in my set up soon became evident!
First of all, I had just loaded my pallet with fresh yellow paint. The first thing I did was put my finger into the well of gooey paint and proceeded to get it everywhere. It was a good thing the tractor was yellow.
Next, I put my pallet on my tool box and proceeded to knock it over. Fortunately, I caught it with my paint brush, that was dipped in red. Luckily, it was a synthetic bristle brush otherwise I would have ruined it. I used the bristle end to catch the pallet; not good.
OK, I need practice and experience. Still, it was fun and interesting!
PS. No, I’m not the construction police.
