Christmas Banners in the Mall

A few years ago in 2002, local artists were asked to submit a design for hand painted Christmas banners for the Mall.  My design was chosen, along with lots of others, to be displayed on a banner. We had to paint our design ourselves on a pre-constructed vinyl banner. I was so excited AND it was a paid job - $100, which was a lot for a starving artist!  Those same banners have been displayed in the Mall each year at Christmas ever since, and even though they are no longer shiny and new - it's still a lovely 'Christmassy' feeling.

My name not quite up in lights.

It's the same design on the back, but no names were put on the backs of the banners.  
Not a bad shot of the Mall either.
