Silhouette Mural

This is a small section of the finished mural that I showed you last Monday when it was in mid-production. I never did see the artists working on it although I kept seeing their equipment on the site, The whole mural is several hundreds of feet long as it is on a retaining wall separating a parking lot from train tracks.  I love how they have painted the tree silhouettes pointing up into the bushes above them - very cool!

I like the artist's use of colour. Bummer that you never caught the artist at work

I agree with you, the trees were a good idea! ;-)

Great choice for theme day RedPat and what an unusual mural. Love the colour reflected in the puddle too.

This is wonderful!
And so perfect for both memes! (I have been searching my archives for something silhouette-ish with no luck)

Definitely an eye-grabber.

It sure is a pretty mural and I like the way it changes colors as you go along. Nice Theme Day post!

A two-for-one!! Clever you and good eye. Many murals here are on construction site walls and retaining walls. Does it seem that way to you, too? The mural is impressive in both concept and size. I find it to be very soothing. Hope it lasts a very long time. Thank you for contributing to Monday Mural.

I really like this - the less is more philosophy.

Such a wonderful idea for the theme! I was too lazy to turn my computer on this past weekend and was too busy yesterday to post. Hopefully I'll find something tonight. :)
