"First & third New Port Richey Historical Mural"

Thank you Jeff Miller and everyone at the Historical Society for all your hard work in posting fantastic photographs at your website! I spent hundreds of hours researching the 1920s for this mural, most of the images used came from your website!


THANK YOU for visiting Artistic Murals website!


What is a mural? A mural by definition is a painting that is done directly on a wall regardless of size or paint used by the artist. There is some controversy in the art world today about murals that are first painted on canvas then glued to walls.  Some believe that a mural on canvas is not a mural but instead it is a painting.  My personal feeling is that because the pre finished painting is attached to a wall with glue, that it falls in the catagory of hand painted wall paper.  On the other hand, if the artist first glues canvas to a wall, then creates the mural, it is considered a mural because, and here is they key...the image is painted directly on the wall.   With that said...





I paint, sculpt and truly enjoy meeting new people.

Since painting these paintings 2 of the 3 people they were dedicated to have passed away.  One, my 37 year old niece, died from complications that came from taking tysabri, which is a drug given to those with agressive MS. Tthe other died from MS complications, she was only 55. May they both rest in peace.
