Standing two steps up on an 8-foot ladder, face-to-face with white paint strokes beginning to form the head of a buffalo, Hannah Mooney stood where she stood for the better part of the summer, focused and facing the wall turned canvas turned mural on the front of the AVA Community Art Center.

Just days before the finished mural, named “Miss Wyoming,” debuted at the community center’s Summer Bash last Thursday, she was busy putting the finishing touches on the project that began in June.
