Painting a float is very different than painting a mural. To stay on schedule, you sometimes have to paint two sides of a roughly 15'x50' float with front and back. Naturally, this requires you to economize on how the image is presented to the parade-goers who may only get to enjoy its beauty as it passes at a 5 mph clip, generally with a crowd of people in front of you, or while standing a few feet from it.It can be hard to find the happy medium between doing your best work in extreme weather conditions in a short period time. Still, I am generally happy with my work.
