Set Painting, Why Not?

This spring, I ended up volunteering to design the background painting for the Blue Heron Dance Company production of Giselle.  I wasn't planning on undertaking this huge endeavor, but then I realized a) nobody else was stepping forward and b) I do, in fact, have a degree in painting.  I could come up with a German forest.  Why not?

I tried to come up with a design that could be done in a weekend by a small crew of volunteer artists and non-artists alike.  To keep it simple, I painted the mock-up in stages so we could do sort of a step by step, painting background to foreground.
