like a Survivor challenge

UPDATE: The plan has changed, see below...

Allow me to list the variables to painting a last minute mural in Haiti:

Can't bring anything bulky or heavy
which pretty much rules out rollers, pans and cans of paint
No projector
No clue where it's going or how many are needed
Must finish within 5 days, when not teaching craft lessons
hot weather and possibly rain
Must paint solely using feet and toes.

Okay we don't have to use our feet,
But you can see why my head might explode at any moment.

Pack as many brushes and tubes of Liquitex as possible.
Because we can't bring cans and we can't bring any no-no chemicals on a plane.
And a few sketches.

And then pray that it all comes together.

Oh man, it should be interesting.

Good thing I'm the official team blogger, so I'll keep everyone up to date while we're there.
(Yeah the layout sucks, but hey, I got other stuff to do.)

Points awarded to s/he who knows what movie this is from!

I'm just going to take a stab in the dark and say, "THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY?"

Well, truthfully, I really DID know it, other than the fact that I was thinking it was from LUST FOR LIFE, in which Paul Newman played Vincent Van Gogh... although I just looked it up in a movie guide and was reminded that it was Kirk Douglas who played Van Gogh, not Paul Newman. But Newman DID play a painter in WHAT A WAY TO GO. (OK, I'm actually LOSING points now, aren't I?)

Anyway, I didn't come here to score points; I came here just to tell you that I thought your answer to the question "You're trapped in a well with a goat and a slinky, describe how you will escape" was REALLY FUNNY!

I found your Blog only because I too have MAHALIA JACKSON listed under the “Favorite Music” category. (Well, I score at least a few points for that, don’t I?)

Bless And Be Blessed.
