Dundas West Mural


This is another of the wonderful murals along Dundas West that were designed by Jose Ortega. Most of the murals were commissioned by the city in combination with the local business association and this one located by a very wide sidewalk has had lovely benches & small gardens installed in front of it - will have to return next summer when there are flowers! The blue of this mural perfectly matches the sky of that day - the same weather we have today.

Oh, the blue grabbed me right away.

Nice. It looks like those blue rays spill right out and fill the sky.

This is wonderfully bright and colorful, and yes, the blue is just right!

I almost missed that person in the photo, the eye is draw to that beautiful color. I especially like the smiley face butterfly!

One has to say that this mural certainly gives an older building new life. Eye-poppingly colorful!
