(3) Installation, Parts Two & Three

Installation Day 2 was canceled due to a severe weather alert. Heavy rain and a possible tornado was forecast and I didn't want to take any chances of the mosaic work getting ruined so I preempted the installation by one day.

I stopped in at the center to lay plastic over the panels that were already installed just to be sure that any water didn't seep under the ungrouted mosaics.

Installation Day 3 was a success. I attached the remaining mosaic panels to the walls and left everything to dry.

Here are all of the photos taken that day...

I intentionally installed my largest Invader mosaic on a wall all the way at the back of "Linda Lane". It's sort of hidden but is really hiding in plain sight.
