A Four Fer on Monday Mural


As I will be back on the road in a few days this will be the last Monday Mural post for some time.  
So I will use up the last of my Chillicothe Missouri murals in this one posting.

This town had the largest and highest quality murals of any 
that I discovered during our Great Plains Tour of last fall.





Now if only they could do something about the infernal cars being parked in front of them!

  2. Neat collection of murals you have posted today. Don't worry about the parked cars. My mind seems to shut them out.

  3. I think that by the size and the point of view of the murals the parked cars are sometimes part of the mural. Very clever.

  4. These are all so beautiful paintings, you almost must get lost in that village. It is hardly to see what is a real road, or a fake one.

  7. They are wonderful - the cars seemed to blend in.
    I copied and pasted your link to American Gothic - thanks - I remember when you posted it but it was nice to have a refresher.

  8. This is the first time I've actually thought the cars looked like they almost belong. Especially the one where the gentlemen on the street are standing next to one! But I especially like the first one where it looks like the oxen are bearing down on that car. Can't wait to see what you get up to on the road...it's still a bit too cold to hit the road here yet, but soon!

  9. This is a cool collection of murals. I especially like the nostaligic feeling of the compositions. Reminds me of the work of the Regional artists of the 30s. Hope you have good luck finding murals in the south. In the meantime, safe trip.
