Litchfield Lane murals

Painting is going well on the garage doors on Litchfield Lane in Manchester. This striking lion was painted by artist Christine Keenan.

Two paintings on one door. On the left an homage to Van Gogh by Linda Feinberg and on the right a painting by Ronnie Bourgeois. Title: Freedom.

This is an older painting that was refurbished by Deb Funk, Stephanie Byrd and Anthony Williams.

Our fearless leader, Anthony Williams, walked me further down the lane so I could take a photo of his older mural, "The old man of the mountain". It's still in good condition as is the next one.

This painting was organized by Anthony and many of the neighborhood kids worked on it. They signed their names on the right. It was painted in 2008.

It was sad to see so much graffiti on the garage doors and buildings there, but all the places where there were murals were not tagged and looked great.  Thanks to Eagle Eyes group and Anthony Williams for leading this project.

This is another older mural, painted by Deb Curtin, that is still in great condition.

Thanks to all the artists who participated in this project.  It is still ongoing and a few more murals will be up by the end of the summer.

Summer Projects

The summer painting murals project has begun.  There are several garage doors available for painting on Litchfield Lane. Linda Feinberg, our former treasurer, who is about to leave for Idaho, completed this one, an homage to Van Gogh.  Anthony Williams, our Vice President has other garage doors already primed and waiting for the artists who signed up. Of course, the weather is a factor since we have to paint outdoors.

Anthony Williams completed his eagle for the Veterans Count project. Looks like Sylvester stayed out of the way long enough for Tony to paint.
