If you saw this great photo by Geoff Hansen in the paper the other day and want to see more work from Mary Lacy …

Kevin Barry, of Barnard, Vt., right, playfully challenges Lindley Brainard, of Bethel, Vt., to a duel with their cordless drills while working on one of four trout murals by artist Mary Lacy, of Burlington, Vt., on a retaining wall in Bethel on Aug. 21, 2017. Barry and Brainard drilled nearly 200 holes to attach the murals in a manner approved by the Vermont Agency of Transportation. Lacy and the volunteer crew are finishing the installation this week on the wall, built in 1940. “It’s no longer the ugliest wall in Vermont,” Barry said.

Black chinned hummingbird and New Mexico wildflowers in Gallup, NM. Number 8 on the #marylacymuraltour. Coordinated w help from @tdk835 @amjad__mj and @jacquelinemkoh from @beautifyearth . Unfortunately I am not continuing onto the next mural, but heading home as I’m a little banged up 🤕. There’s one more mural back in Bethel, VT so still planning to finish this tour 9-1. And considering each mural was a battle and a half full of logistics/emails/phones/permits/research/craziness/problems/solutions …. I’ll take it w pride :). ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #marylacy #buckettrucktour #beautifyearth #gallupnm #gallup #newmexico #blackchinnedhummingbird . Paint from Day 1 to Day Now, by @benjaminmoore #benjaminmoore . Also major thanks to @tdk835 for helping out the broken painter with those Goldpoppies :):)

Painting this one indoors on parachute paper that will then be installed on the outside of @creativekids.olo . Instead of my usual animal, I am painting an #alebrije animal, a brightly colored Mexican folk art sculpture of a fantastical creature. It’s a three part collaboration between me, about 40 kids, and this Alebrije style I’ve been learning about from Creative Kids here in El Paso. As for the patterns on top of the shapes, I’m takin on most of the head and belly and then the 40′ of tail feathers (not pictured) are fair game for all these kiddos. #marylacymuraltour #elpasotx #creativekids #eagleroosterdragonfly #alebrijes . Paint still and always #benjaminmoore . @wyliegarcia I had you on my mind today painting all those swirlpatterns :)!
