Four Seasons

This is across the wall behind a covered walkway in Fernbank Primary School here in Limerick.

About ten years ago, I was asked to design a mural which could be painted in co-operation with the kids in the school here. "Design" is too strong a word for what I do, but I sketched up this lot in black paint. Then I worked with the classes in batches of five to eight kids at a time until every child in the school had spent at least fifteen minutes painting it. THEN I went back and did what I call "search and rescue" and tidied up the artwork.

It came out fairly ok. I must get some better pictures of it.

They are Fr. John Bosco and Sr. Mary Magliozzi - founders (I think) of the order of Salesians back in the eighteenth or nineteenth century, or possibly the early twentieth century. I'm not terribly sure about the history of the order, and I just worked as well as I could from some small postcard pictures. I'm not sure if there's any real likeness there, but the school seemed happy enough. Who am I to argue?smile.gif

The realistic portraits of the Father and the Nun ... are they teachers of the school?
