On our way back from Shreveport, Kevin and I cut through the Delta. I am not sure what the most boring interstate in the country is... but I would vote for 55 north from Jackson to Batesville. I love driving through the country because of jems like this. We drove past the sign and then did a u-turn to take a picture. This is the most amazing slogan.
Stage 1 with the background- It was working for me- too big, too many colors, not right
Stage 2 is much better in my opinion. I used a neutral (chromatic gray) and a tiny stencil. I am working on the tongs now.
