Downtown Markham Project Day 1 or 9 to 5 with an 8 x 10 foot panel and 19 other artists for 5 days. And so, my week begins.

 This morning I begin a week long, 9am -5pm, project on a development site.

 The Remington Group, who are the developers of the Downtown Markham project, called for 20 artists to create their idea of "The Perfect City" on the construction boards which will ring the building site.

  I applied and a jury chose me and today we begin our work.

We're in a giant tent in case it rains.

They've promised us high end potties, and a meet and greet with continental breakfast this morning.

I'm working on a sheet of dibond - an aluminum with a coated surface, 8' x 10' wide, which, if my sample piece is really like what I will be given, will prove to be a challenge. 

I believe my first day will be all about surface preparation.  I'll be back tonight and will let you know.
