Murals and Window Paintings
I've been painting murals and artwork for schools, pubs, and local businesses for the past twenty five years in Limerick. These are a few samples. Artwork is not an indication of my religious or political belief - a customer gets what they ask for to the best of my limited ability.

@ Joerg McFly: Yeah, window painting is a bit of a bummer in regard to stickers and reflections. I have another picture somewhere of the three wise men pointing at a reflected Panasonic sign.

@ Dasjoerg : Thanks, I had a lot of fun with the writers and artists mural that the War of the Worlds pic is part of.

Excellent work!
The "War of the Worlds" thing is my favourite!

I know it's not intentional, but I really like Mary looking at the sticker that says "These premises protected by CCTV"...

Thanks for the kind comments. Seriously, painting is much easier than drawing - none of those murals took anything like the time I would spend on a similar drawing - the brush does most of the work. They are a lot of fun to do, particularly as I have no idea what the final picture will look like
until the last half hour of painting.

The superhero mural took about six hours, start to finish, and the last pub window was an afternoon's work.

Your limited ability?!?
This work is great!

If I showed the spider-man wall my son, he'd instantly know what he wants for christmas!

Old Irish Text style - not sure what it's real name is. I learned it from my Dad's handwriting and old Irish books he had. Not perfect 'coz it is handpainted from memory, but thanks for the comment.
