Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I have a new customer. He is a part owner in 2 bars in Brooklyn. This one is “3rd & 7” in Marine Park Brooklyn.
Anyone notice there is a backwards “S” ??? You are not supposed to notice! This is a bar and things are not as they seem once you had a few drinks!
The inside windows….
Lucky clovers and horse shoes~
The front door…
The mirrors behind the bar
The luck O’ the Irish
Everyone is Irish on St. Patty’s Day! Cheers…….
Here is his other bar, “Rhythm & Booze.” Just off of Park slope south…
Here are the lucky Leprechauns……
The windows above the curtains…
The mirror behind the bar…
The dude at the bar.
Happy St. Patty’s Day!

Easter is early this year! I painted these windows at Fortunatos Pastry shop last week.
I was inspired by the plush Easter bunnies they had dispersed throughout the store.
The girl bunny!
Matching boy bunny!
Flowers along the side windows…and all the people! These folks are IT somewhere in Manhattan. Yes, I do hear the conversations as I paint!
The back doors….
The end windows. The real meaning of Easter…the Lord has risen. Peace, Joy, Love and Hope.

More window painting! Unfortunately, the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies has sold the building and they are moving.
But they called me to do up their windows one last time.
They came up with the truck idea and I came up with the boxes and moving men.
One set of windows has about 2 feet of depth to work in. Here is what it looks like from the inside work space.
Every time I went in and out of the room to wash brushes I felt like this man was watching over me.
The painted moving boxes juxtaposed with the real moving boxes.
You can’t miss this almost life size truck when you come up or go down the subway station at 22nd and Park Avenue. Sometimes I see people taking a quick pic of me as they hurry by. I am the monkey in the window when I paint!
Best of luck to FPWA in their new home down the block!
