monday mural - gillen's supermarket

A few months ago Gillen's Supermarket commissioned a new mural for their side wall where the customers park.  The artist is a very multi-talented local man, Brendan Farren, and the mural shows local scenes, Lough Foyle, the lighthouse and Cooley Cross.  It a long one and tough getting it in one image due to cars being there off and on all day and night.  The last photo is of the end.  Previously I showed its predecessor back in February,

  7. 'Tis a beautiful piece and a wonderful idea to incorporate scenes from the town and area into the mural. It also makes Gillens easy to find! I hope that storm is passing you by!

  11. Nice mural. It's always hard to photograph long murals and there always seems to be cars around blocking the complete view.

  12. That mural is very nicely done with very pleasing colors. I hear on the news this morning that a big storm is headed your way. I hope you and your family are safe and sound.

  14. It's good to see businesses putting attractive murals on the sides of their buildings. It is. A challenge to photograph some of them.

  17. These are great murals. Eugene is trying to add murals around town, the City even brought in what they said were world-famous muralists, but I am not fond of most of them. I feel like the artists were trying too hard to be original. (Or else I'm just old and cranky -- a pretty fair possibility).

  19. It's nice to see that Gillen's sees that wall as a place for community art. This is very different from its predecessor.
    I hope you've survived Ophelia unscathed. It sounds like the southwest took a beating.
