Old-fashioned Sunday #3

The previous two murals are in better shape than this one; as you can see, the architectural defect is not camouflaged as well as yesterday's. Even though the murals have been neglected, the scenes of days-gone-by are still clearly visible on all three that I have posted. Have a good week-end, everyone. I'll see you on Monday!

  1. You know, this mural convinces me that the artist was not trying to camouflage the filled-in window/door. I think he/she just ignored it.

    Do you know how old these murals are? They are beautiful and in great shape.

    Je te souhaite un bon weekend

  5. These are quite nice Kate. I would like to see something like that here on the sides of old buildings downtown. I would say the person is a gifted artist who is doing them.

    Nice shot too.

  7. I saw Seurat even in the thumbnail. The mural is a very clever variation on his famous Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, which is in the Chicago Art Institute. Is there an island in the Mississippi these people could be on?

  13. I do like the murals. I posted a couple that are on our downtown buildings, znd as I mentioned, we're amazed that they aren't tagged. Like, Fenix, I'd like to know how long they've been there.

  14. Actually I found the "architectural defect" to add interest to the mural. I like to imagine a mural within a mural both blinding together.

  15. Love your mural series. They are all beautiful and reminiscent of an artist's work whose name I don't recall. The second mural with the bicycle is the most interesting and beautiful of the three.
