My last painted mask…

During my time at Marianist Galleries, I painted many a Bro. Mel mask. Sometimes he would make 12 at a time and my painting table would be covered with them. I would go around applying color to each one. I fondly referred to the process as “mask production.”

About a week ago, a woman brought in an old, rusted mask and asked me to repaint it…

At first I told her we did not do this anymore. She pleaded with me and I said I could get out some paints again… so her poor, rusted mask received a face lift.

Bro. Mel’s “Gals and Guitars” that were at Marianist Galleries —
the only masks left now are the two we are saving that were in his room.
