One of the consequences of having school age kids is that volunteer contributions are regularly expected from the parents to help with such worthy endeavors as school plays and the like. In this case, I was drafted to design a set for a representation of 'The Nightingale' with a cast of three to five years old actors. You can see my original sketch at bottom, the finished design in the middle and the final result on the stage at top. One of the most difficult and time consuming task proved to be the mixing of such large quantities of paint. The whole set was painted in a day with the help of other volunteers. Fun.
