Once upon a time, I was younger, healthier and undertook projects like this. These are two murals I painted 14 years ago on my front porch. Taken from photos in magazines, I used ordinary tempera paints that have held up rather well. That bird is not painted by the way; it's one of those that "fly" when you pull a string underneath.
An older neighbor told me there were windows on these two walls years ago. They were covered over (or taken out) when the house was sided, probably in the 60s or energy conscious 70s.
The real views on the other sides of these walls look nothing like what I painted. Kind of a nice escape.
Have a fanciful day!
