update

Here's a little update on the window mural. I see a couple bits I want to fiddle with a little more, but otherwise pretty much done.
Contrada San Taddeo 27x36 inches, acrylic on canvas, work in progress
Having to take these pics at an angle to the easel because my studio room is so crowded. When it's all done I find a wall to pin it up on and get better pics.

  7. As a former mural artist (and still occasionally), I loooove the idea of a "mural to go" - and yours is fantastic! How wonderful to be able to have that view all the time!

  18. thanks everyone! @Pointy Pix The scene is from a photo I took in Italy last year while staying at The Retreat http://www.lemarcheretreat.com/ This road winds around and up the hill behind them and at the top is an old tumble down chapel. The road and chapel are named San Taddeo.
