Murals are created to fill empty or vacant walls and ceilings with painted illusions of space and light in homes and businesses. Sketches and color palettes are generated by George Shadow for client approval. When they are accepted, the imagery is drawn on canvas or on the surfaces of the walls or ceilings for painting. Canvas is painted in the studio for later installation when possible. Sometimes, the size of the mural or the shape of the walls or ceiling requires painting directly on the surface, which must be prepared to accept paint. Fine art materials are always used, guaranteeing the quality and longevity of the work. The Foyer mural, for example, was painted with acrylics directly on the walls because of the curves of the bump-out balcony of the second floor.

Acrylic media painted directly on the prepared foyer walls. This painted illusion of space, aged texture and crumbling color provides the viewer the impression of being able to walk through to the sunlit terraces and gazebo behind the home.
