Iron Frame Delivered.

On Monday, April 2, Tarrier Steel arrived at The Artist's Roost to deliver the first of the huge iron frames for the Lima Company Memorial. What a thrill to stand next to the massive, raw steel and know that this will hold the first of the full size panels of the Memorial Paintings. It took 6 men to get it into the studio and ingenuity as it first didn't fit through the door.
Duane Winchester, who worked with me to design the frames, slid the painting down into the frame and I saw the beauty of the raw steel as it picked up the same colors in the painting of Hoffman, Bloem and Bell.
