The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Monday Mural


Jud, North Dakota


Seven artists worked together on this mural; you can see the names to the far left.
Just think there could have been some way they could have incorporated that metal thingy into the composition somehow, but I couldn't come up with any ideas so perhaps they could not either.

  2. If you ever get out to Oregon, there is a little town called Estacada that is just full of murals I think you might enjoy

  4. That is a nice image.

    I think the bookshop from an earlier post looks good too - some many books, so little time!

  5. For an artist painting on a wall it can be a greater challenge than painting on a flat canvas. I'm always amazed at how they paint all of the nook and grannies and still keep the perspective.

  6. To paint with seven people must not be easy,but the result is nice. The button in the middle you have to deal with when you start painting.

  7. I agree with Bieb. Could have been a mill or a part of a silo, but that is talk afterwards. Still a nice mural.

  8. Yup they should have painted it out or made it a silo or ....!

  9. For a second I thought the grass in front of it was part of the mural!

  10. The fence is a natural divider; like looking at pictures on two separate pages of a book.

  11. I thought the metal thingy was the light of an oncoming train, and then realized there were no tracks. Back to the drawing board. I'm afraid it garners more attention than it should being smack dab in the middle of the composition. Onward to enjoying the bucolic scene. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  12. Nice one -- and I really like your low point of view on this shot. I wonder how all the artists worked together on this project. Perhaps they could have incorporated the metal object as a wind turbine or something.

  13. I was thinking the same thing. Very pretty, nonetheless.
