Mural Paintings

The front entry of 1313 Main Street in the morning sun.

This is the front entry of our home where after seven years living here I decided to finally paint a mural. It is typical of scenery along the Connecticut River with it's accents of houses, fields and barns. I also painted the chair rail molding and my wife Janice did the stenciling at the top. It all began by changing a lighting fixture and also getting the house ready for two occasions in May and June which I'll be writing more about it later.

If ever there might be a desire to have a traditional, decorative or an Old New England style mural, just inquire.

This is a painting that I did a few months ago and recently the wainscotting that was installed finished off the rear entry to Longfellow's Wayside Inn. This is one of my favorite places and for many others over the years to experience a beautiful place of early New England. The area is about 6x8 feet and encompasses all of the grounds for you to see. There's the Inn itself, the chapel, school house and the Grist Milll to name a few of the images.

The Inn is now open to the public for breakfast and I highly reccomend the experience or just stop by the gift & bake shop and have coffee and a treat.
