finally, some details
So, now that I have money in hand even though I'm not planning on cashing the check until this newest and last change regarding the installation is approved, I'll come across with some details. I've referred to the small animal hospital which is actually the teaching small animal veterinary clinic and hospital at Texas A & M University. We will be doing 3 large panels, 4' x 7' for a wall that extends out from the entrance and helps support a roof that covers the entrance to the hospital.
At the beginning, I thought I would be able to do some fun designs of all sorts of small animals but, no. They were quite specific about what they wanted. One panel will have Reveille, the school mascot, one panel will have a male and female tech holding a cat and a dog, and the third panel will be a rescue dog and a rescue worker, the last living rescue dog that worked 9/11. Part of what they do there, I guess, is train rescue dogs. They did photo shoots and sent me the pictures to work from. In truth, I've never done anything like this before. I don't do people. Well, I've done angels that look like people and I did Jesus and the children for the cry room of a Catholic Church and I did those four portraits for the conference room a few years ago. Anyway, I have no idea how I am going to proceed. It will be a challenge.
While I'm waiting for the client to sign off on this last install change, I'm working on the residence. I'll be working on the full size drawing for the door panel today. I have to wait til my installer does a field measure of the cabinets before I can start on those drawings because I forgot to take a crucial measurement when I was there last week...the space between the glass panels. The drawing for the cabinets is not fully rendered. I personally think it's a little busy but I don't have to live with it.
