Without an inkling of weariness or frustration, LaGina Fairbetter goes about the work of carefully creating the correct perspective for buildings in a frontier town.
The project, scheduled to open in October, will become the newest addition to the Windmill Museum at the American Wind Power Center in Lubbock. Work on the mural began in late 2007.
Jenny Cox, a Texas Tech junior helping Fairbetter with the project, said working on the mural has been both a learning experience and an insight into the soul of what art should be. Fairbetter has been a teacher and a friend, Cox said, but more than that, she's living proof that some people can look at something and find something different to bring to the surface.
