June 8 - The Fearless Artist

The instability of the weather has become one of Carlito's biggest challenges. In a span of ten minutes, we watched a hot sunny day turn into one great big black cloud, followed by thunder, lightening and then the storm.

The highlight of today was when a friend showed up on site with the Toronto Star. On page E8 is a fabulous picture of Carlito and the painting. This made the artist very happy. "I think it is amazing and I am really excited." Knowing that word about the artist and this project is getting out there whatever the medium, is a wonderful thing.

What is very impressive is the resilience of everyone and regardless of the weather, the painting seems protected and continues to hang without incident.
Despite the obstacles, individual teams manning the terrace are in great spirits as they prepare for the final day including an official unveiling and signing.

As they say, it is not over until the fat lady sings!
