“Grass-roots storytelling through color and images, bringing people together from all over the world,” summarizes Marion, “It’s a joy to design.”
The whole thing from washing down the old painting, to the hands-holding opening ceremony and blessing takes ten to fourteen days. But painting on the cement canvas? Only three to five days.
Marion chips in his own money to help finance the costs, which range from $3 K to $5 K every year. Community businesses and individuals also help to sponsor the painting.
