Mural on Old Ford Church

Mural-at-Old-Ford-Road
Celebration of life in Old Ford
The Artist Ray Walker asked me if I would like to paint a mural on this wall. I had asked him if i could be his apprentice mural painter as he had just painted a mural in Bow.
He said no: he did not want an apprentice, but this wall was too small for him and would I like to paint it.
It was my first large exterior mural!
