Filmed in 2006 in Virginia, Universal Picture's "Evan Almighty" (Starring Steve Carell and Morgan Freeman) offered a unique opportunity to create a painting in very unusual circumstances. The comedy concerns a local congressman, Evan Baxter (Steve Carell) who is instructed by God, (Morgan Freeman) to build an ark. The set was gigantic. Fully half the length of the ark was built on site. In the movie, as the ark is built, crowds gather and a carnival atmosphere surrounds the construction. I was hired to act as just a background element, an artist who had set up his easel to paint this monstrous ship.
