Thanks to great suggestions from the OSU and Oregon Arts Commission committee during their last studio visit, Sheri, Rich and Saralyn in attendance, the blue panel has undergone some subtle but important revisions just before coming off the work wall.  Most notably, the mural gained salmon, largely due to Saralyn's suggestion that the salmon is a spiritual symbol in the region, and that such imagery, however suggestive, might play well with the other imagery in the mural.  Once I started laying in salmon forms in the mural I found several places for them.    How many do you find?

Continuing refinements

Refinements on the atmosphere, canopy of the trees better integrated with the organic veils to the right.  A few new touches on the infants. 

Panel #3 is grounded on the floor of the studio and almost ready to go onto the work wall.
