There Ought to be a Law


NO PARKING in front of murals!

Chillicothe, Missouri
Notice how every square inch of the brick surface was used for the mural.

I'll submit two this week just because of the cars in the way.
The detail in this one is incredible.

  1. certainly a lot of work for the artist/s. I kind of see the parking as adding a new dimension to the mural, almost as if the parking spaces were especially allocated for 3-D.

  3. These murals are amazing There are some very talented artist out there. My posting today also has a pick up truck parked in front of it. It's tough being a mural photographer:-)

  5. Even though I frequently lament the cars parked in my view of the murals, they do lend a real sense of proportion to the murals - these are very close to actual size! You are right - the detail is amazing! I particularly love that last one with the clouds...just gorgeous!

  9. Terrific works of art and full of detail.
    To answer your question about the nude sculpture., I saw it in a gallery on the Las Vegas strip. Sorry I cannot remember the name of the place. We were in and out of so many stores and speciality shops that day.

  10. Huge and so much detail! I love those antique cars in the top mural.

  11. not many murals take up every bit of the wall - very impressive.
    and, as happened with one of my murals, I don't think the vehicles detract from the mural that much.
