Welcome to the Few And Far project blog!
This was our 1st F&F wall, with many more to come! Here are a few progress photos from Oakland.
Day1: Some of us turn up at the wall. (Above) Reds, Mags and Meme laughed at how difficult the (construction grade) steel scaffolding looked, scattered on the sidewalk. Meme rented the scaffold, not knowing how heavy duty it really was. Posts, long screws, supports, heavy duty poles of all different sizes, and no instructions… what a mess!
Myla and her million dollar schemes, super fresh!
With a little help, we got the scaffolding up, and Mags went straight to painting with her game face on.

Day2: After massive rain storms, we waited for it to calm down, then started to paint. Everyone kept painting through the cold winds and rain drizzles.

Tattoo artist, Beth Emmerich, learning how to use spraypaint on her first large mural, amazing!
The sun finally came out for us in the afternoon!
Siloette showed up feeling under the weather, and still got down!

Night2: Painting, out of our minds and totally burnt out! Agana up on the scaffold, Reds cleaning up, Meme and Muse kept painting untl 3am.
Day3: Meme, Mags, Myla, Hops, and Dime with the finishing touches
The wall in the works, now finished. Stay tuned for full wall photos.
