    Wish the grain elevators around here would do this
    As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

    That's amazing. I can't get proportions right on a sheet of paper. I have no idea how they do it on a piece this size.

    They grid the original drawing. I use to do a lot of the painting of stage scenery getting my BA Degree in theater arts. Very beautiful indeed.

    wow! I love that! It always amazes me how much depth you can get even out of just two colors.

    JDP and Tothill, I have never seen anything like these but they are wonderful.

    You are fortunate to have such great art to admire on the silos! In our part of the country we occasionally have an old silo or side of a barn painted by a big corporation for ad. purposes along a busy highway.

    Great idea for artful use of silos. Here in Buffalo, NY we are using our silos for a wonderful light show.
