Mother took Shawn just five days to complete and sits on the side of Hogarths in Preston city centre.
The artwork depicts a young woman holding a lamb, with Preston’s flag draped around her.
Shawn, since his first mural which proved very popular with Prestonians, has been invited to paint a second mural in Friargate on the side of Northern Way pub.
Posting in Facebook group, ‘Preston Past and Present’, Shawn wrote: ‘Hi guys,
‘I have gained a few followers from this group. So I thought I would introduce myself, I was responsible for the 'Mother' mural. Local artist Shawn Sharpe.
‘I've started my second mural today on The Northern Way on Friargate, I'm sure a few of you can already guess the theme for this one? Work In progress.
‘I currently have three picture frames on the design, I plan on painting something Preston related in each. Any ideas from you guys would be great, it can be past or present.
‘I will then paint the idea that I think will fit well in such a small space. Thanks.’
The artist has invited Prestonians down for a chat outside the pub on Friargate while he works on the artwork.
