The first group of images is a ceiling I painted in 2012/13. The "teenage" angel is based on the homeowners' daughter who is famous for her mischievous, crooked smile.  The technical problem I had to solve was that the domed ceiling over the dining table was irregular enough in outline to precluded any attempt at symmetry (my first thought had been to contain the mural in a trompe l'oeil classical architectural border). In the end I decided to take the irregularity even further by designing the border as though a giant hand had reached down and lifted the lid off the house, exposing laths and joists.

Following are a few images of murals I did with high-school students at St. Kilian's school in Ireland - I have to apologize for the poor quality of the photographs. Unfortunately I wasn't the obsessive recorder of my projects back then that I am now, and this is only a fraction of the mural work I instigated.
