First "Grob" Coat

I began preparing to paint the garage wall mural today, mixing white grob paint with a dilution of 15%. The wall of the garage had some cracks and odd rough and smoother spots -- all of which seem to have disappeared under the layer of grob paint. At the edges, though, along the ground and up against the fence, there was lumpy concrete and I have to figure out what to do about them.

Given the choice of a roller or brush, I decided to use a brush to start getting a feel for the wall.

So, 2 1/2 hours later, having listened to the sounds of the park and playground as I painted, I can report at least this -- there's as much laughter as their is crying among the little kids in the park and to everyone but the little kids I was invisible.
