A little birdie told me...

... That one of my murals has been painted over. YES. it is unfortunately so. This birdie aint lyin. I made a trip passed my former place of employment, Beginnings Learning Center, to verify the news... and it is correct. A lovely (and by lovely I mean disgusting) coat of gray/lilac now blankets what used to be the mural I completed about four years ago. The mural was a project I started as a gift to the Beginnings class of 2004, and for all of the future students to enjoy. It was based from a book that the kids loved and which mirrored their "beginnings" at the school and metamorphosis from babies to, as I called them, "kiddos." The mural was about five huge panels that chronicled the life of a butterfly from eggs to caterpillars, crysalids, and then of course to butterflies. The images symbolized the way in which Beginnings students/ graduates move on from pre-school into new territory in their education. I really loved the mural.. but I guess Beginnings is also moving into new territory and making their own changes- unfortunately, one that meant leaving the mural in the past.

Here are a few pictures of me when I was working on the mural.
