Paint The World: Part Two

We waited until dusk and then shone the bright light of a projector onto the outdoor wall of the soup kitchen, outlining the world and showing us where to trace. This step was surprisingly quick – once the logistics of borrowing a laptop, projector, ensuring they worked well together, and worked well outside were ironed out, that is.

Next it was onto the painting, which we did in the light of the day. We marked the countries to be painted the same color and the local youth group went to town, carefully filling in the pencil outlines.

As the vibrant colors were added to the wall, a real map began to form and everyone was excited.

Yet to come in update Part Three: we still need to finish painting a few more countries (Europe is a bit sparse), and then outline and label them all. Even unfinished, the map is adding some welcome color and life to the soup kitchen yard and all those who pass on the road.
