The women began June 9 painting the white background and hope to finished within four weeks. “That’s the thing about her,” Hoover said of actress Dorothy Dawn. “She had those big eyes.”

To create the mural, Linda Hoover is using acrylic paint. “In theory, it should last forever,” she said. “Because it’s a plastic base.”

Artist Linda Hoover uses a scissor-lift to reach the large mural Wednesday. Hoover said when she began the project Wednesday morning the wind was blowing at a good clip. She added that she planned to finish for the day at noon before the sun reached that side of the building.
