Acrylic on Walls

I've been fortunate enough to do not 1 but 2 murals in the Cultural Trust Crazy Mocha in downtown Pittsburgh. 

The first one here wraps around the kitchen area and it's kind of just a happy park scene with lots of characters and animals enjoying some coffee. The old couple on the bench are supposed to be my grandparents. This one took awhile. It was painted with acrylic paint with a layer of shellac as a final coat. 


The second one is about a sailor who has fallen in love with a mermaid. He now goes out everyday and fishes with a diamond ring hoping she will one day return to him. Of course the mermaid is playing hard to get, as mermaids do, and is holding up a crab to snip the line. This one was also painted in acrylics.
