1. Murals on the Pennsboro fire dept.
I’m the person who did the murals on the Pennsboro fire Dept. The paintings are of the Old Pennsboro. I also have murals at the grade school in Pennsboro. I have murals in Harrisville on the Colonial Gallery. I have also done a sketch for the civil war trail located in Harrisville. I would be excited
