Hi Everyone;

I'm pretty much coming out of lurkdom... I followed Vince and Lois to
the Richard Notkin murals. WOW! Who else has a suggestion for the
mural within a mural, or the master image made up of smaller tiles?
A fascinating project!

chart for him to sort the gradation within the tiles.
It was really a major feat to create that image with smoke fired tiles.
There was a little touch up with paint where the shades needed to be
