Preface -- The adventure begins

Tanya and I drove down to Nogales, Mexico to buy a 50 pound sack of lime from the tortilla factory to make buon fresco. Fortunately, we found the tortillera, "La Argentina," practically in front of the port-of-entry back into Arizona, on Buenos Aires street.

(I met Tanya, my co-conspirator and fellow artist, on Craig’s List).

So I put the lime in a plastic tub and walked it over the international border.

Then drove back to Tucson to the Sculpture Resource Center. Unlike most painting studios, the sculptor's lair seems to lend itself to the messy process of fresco painting. So how could we pass up the opportunity to try out the medium Michelangelo used to paint the Sistine Chapel?
