Monday Mural - On the Trail


Alpine, Texas

This is a wonderfully done mural.  I like the soft pastel shades to it.  I've spotlighted the focal point of the mural here as it is pretty neat how the artist has the main subject stepping out of frame.

Even with the offending car ("Now where are my Parking Tickets?")
 the mural in its entirety is pretty cool.

In the village where I grew up they used to bring the cows along the road, much to the annoyance of people on their way to work. Once an impatient sports car got rather too close to the back of the herd - with messy consequences for the offending car. One rather hopes the cow in the picture has similar intentions.

I like it even with the car. It's very cool how the artist has made the cowboy seem to "step out" of the picture. Nice find!

The jeep painted in front of the mural looks so real!

I like the way the cows are coming out through the wall or the frame or whatever. Very clever.

Yes it looks a bit 3D painted, very nice done, and so huge again.

It almost looks like a watercolor, very pleasing.

You could have towed him away with the little house. LOL.

To my eye the painting is quite subtly done and looks fine enough to be on a canvas. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

I like this mural. Too bad about the car parked out in front, but I can still see what a wonderful mural this is.

I think the vehicle (modern day horse) adds to the image--point and counterpoint.

That is a nice one.
