Welcome to the Artistic Murals :

City Of New Port Richey, Florida Page!  


"Treasured Memories Of New Port Richey"  

This title is dedicated to special the visitors and citizens of New Port Richey.

I am honored to have won this commission and I loved painting the mural!            

The mural depicts the City Of New Port Richey during the 1920s.  All buildings in this mural actually existed, only not necessarily on this main street.  I used my artistic license to create a street of my own full of historic buildings that were important during the 1920s.  To see photographs and learn more about the history of New Port Richey, take a moment to visit: http://www.rootsweb.com/~flwphs/mural.html



Size: 12' x 48'  Medium: Mann Brothers Theme 100% Acrylic Paint.  

Completion time: 33 days 

(Located on "The Karl Reef" wall on Main Street & Grand Blvd.)

New Port Richey was known as "Little Hollywood" during the 1920's, because of this

There is dot at the end of this street which served as my vantage point. Everything in the entire mural was drawn from that single point.

I wanted to personalize this mural, so if you look closely you will numbers on license plates that are real numbers...Ask Charlie at the theater what they mean.

Bill worked at the Karl Reef and out of kindness, brought me coffee nearly every day.  His is dearly missed.

 I am proud to say that I have finished creating my first Government Commission; an honor that I won after 

competing in a national search that the City Of New Port Richey’s Art Council conducted to find the “perfect artist”

to create their first public mural.  For this honor, I promised to give the city my sincere effort in creating a scene 

that reflects the genre of New Port Richey in the 1920’s.  Now that the wall is completed,  it is my sincere hope 

that the New Port Richey Art Council Members, City Council Members, Citizens, Visitors and Mr. & Mrs. Karl, 

(owners of The Karl Reef) are pleased with the end result.   I have immensely enjoyed painting for you!

                                                                                                    God bless you and your loved ones,
