Local artist Oscar L. Hernandez is painting a mural on the north wall at Allied Keys on North Main Street.
The Goddard High School graduate had only two art classes in his young life before deciding to become an artist.
Four and a half years ago, a chance art purchase by his cousins set him on an amazing road: Hernandez felt he could paint just as well as that artist and could make a living as an artist.
His latest project is a Southwest landscape at the key and lock business where Hernandez was hired to bring color and fun to downtown Roswell. The first part of the mural should be finished next week.
Readers can get a glimpse of Hernandez’ work by driving to Allied Keys or by visiting his Facebook page, Art By Oscar L. Hernandez. (Christina Stock Photo)
