Painting the mural

Painting the mural
Most of the painting was done in Haynes’ attic studio. The tight space was being shared with some large tropical plants, however it was just big enough to tape down the external dimensions of the mural on the floor so each part could be viewed in its proper place. The photo above shows some mural components on the floor. The crosses are propped on the right wall and the tomb is leaning upside down on the far wall. Since mural pieces were on the floor, painters wore socks so as not to scratch previously painted surfaces. Most of the painting was done in Haynes’ attic studio.

A number of vignettes were chosen to illustrate the events of the passion.
Slaughter of the passover lamb
Christ enters Jerusalem on a colt
Pontius Pilate before Christ
The garden of Gethsemane
