the Mural was painted in 1947 by James Reynolds an irish writer and artist. The mural is located in the Palladian Ballroom of the historical Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington D.C.
My job is to restore the mural to it’s original splendor. With time and ware the mural is faded in many places, scuffs and scratches from probably moving furniture, graffiti and doodles to take off and food in some places! there is much to do, so far I have restored half on the mural and will continue in august.
I have posted more photos of the process on this page
