PUERTO VELASCO IBARRA... .My mural went up on the wall of tiny outdoor theater, Edificio Multiuso, with a ceiling of solar panels.  However, to determine what would be on the mural took a meeting with some of the locals.  I just draw what they tell me, and since they did all their telling in Spanish, I just draw what is translated.  They wanted something with a little history of the island.  The mural had to have a couple of mountains and a road leading to the mountains were fresh water was located.  I wasn't sure how I was going to include everything they wanted.  However, once again I rose to the occasion and created a masterpiece that even I'm pleased with.

Enthusiasm was high for the mural.  There were around twenty volunteers, mostly kids in the community.  And, since the population of the town is about 100, I had one fourth of the community! The youngest painter was four, and just so cute!  Of course, I was going to need a lot of help.  This mural was eight yards long and I was under a time line of four days.
