I finished the final brush strokes 09/28/2022 on mural #6 of the #50in50project ! I am in love with the design we came up with & I can say with certainty that Jordan and I are in love with Gardnerville, NV.
Gardnerville, there are no words to explain how amazing this has been! But I'm going to try anyway.
This has been 9days start-finish. Starting with an incredible first meeting with Jen Nalder (Jen, you're AWESOME!) walking around downtown and learning so much about the history of this area. That first meeting inspired everything from design to last brush strokes & without Jen Nalder and Geoff Lacost from @mainstreetgardnerville.... this piece wouldn't have been possible!
When I arrived, the structure was still being built..... I blinked and it was completed and primmed for me to begin! Thank you to Eric Matus, Geoff, Carson Valley Groundwork, Curtis and Sons, and Erik Nilssen for all of your hard work! Without you this piece literally could not have been completed!
Massive thank you to everyone here in Gardnerville for being so kind and welcoming! Thank you to the amazing owners of The Historian Inn for sponsoring our first few nights! After 40hrs on the road we needed that rest and your hospitality! We are so grateful.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart! This is not meant to sound like a shout-out post, but it didn't feel right to post the final photos without including the people who really made it happen.
I have felt from the beginning of this project that the relationships and communities were going to be the biggest wow-factor for me, and I am turning out to be right. Beyond what I thought originally! I am so blessed to be able to share my work in this way and to get to know all of you!
P.S. Thank you to my aunt LeAnna for nominating Gardnerville! It started with you!!!
