Loveland Transformation Project: Day 2

About 5 feet or so from where I'm painting is a big drainage ditch that is quite full of water right now.  I'm a little freaked out by the bugs and insects it's attracting.  More than any bug, I'm super afraid of snakes.  So I've been checking the grass around the box before I begin working.  I also found a bee's nest under the lock.  I'd jump in to put a brush stroke of paint down and then jump away.  The other nature highlight today was a mama duck and about 6 babies who made it across all 4 lanes of 287 to the drainage ditch.  Yeah for the duckies.  All this and I managed to get more of the purple background done today.
