St. Bernard

St. Paul, Minnesota

Either through age or because of the way it was originally painted this mural was too dark.† With the help of my team of artistís we first cleaned and repaired the damage to the mural.† This lightened the painting about three percent which was still too dark to suit the church.†

I then established how much lighter the mural needed to be by working and re-working a section of the painting until the client was happy.† After that was established we continued with the rest of the mural.†

We also applied new 23k gold leaf to the haloís of the Holy Spirit, God, and Jesus.

Saint Patrickís Guild and Henning Restorations repaired and brought back to life the ornamental band and the altar area.
