Things That Move - Monday Mural

These scenes are on the service bay doors of a Big O Tire store in Santa Rosa, Ca.
I drive by this shop all the time and never knew these were there.  But when I went by on a Sunday and they were closed, the doors were pulled down and there it was.

I like the simple elementary style to this artwork
These are all scenes of places in Sonoma County, California

This would be downtown Santa Rosa

Out in the west county where the Redwoods are

Along the Russian River

The Sonoma coastline along the Pacific Ocean on Highway 1

Well done guys

  1. so VERY cool! and still looking like new even after 19 years?!

  2. These are very cute. Vehicles are the main focus but the overall composition of each image is charming. Makes one wonder how many other hidden murals are around us. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  3. Real COOL!

  4. A really nice collection of the surroundings with a kind of native presence. I like it.

  5. Very nice murals to brighten up the service bay doors. I like the images.

  6. If the doors are usually open then I bet most people don't know they're there. Too bad as they are FUN!

  7. I love the style of these murals! And the old-timey cars are cute!!!

  8. The biplane was a bit of a shock!
    I guess these miss the worst of the direct sunlight, which helped preserve the colours.

  9. These are wonderful! Those kids are now all grown up.

  10. These are totally awesome! So glad you got to show them to us.

  11. Now the kids from the school just need to write lines to a story to go underneath the paintings!

  12. "Kid's art" is always the best! Those are exceptional!
