As part of an art project some years back, there are dozens of these Peanuts characters all over town. They're all done up differently. This one is in front of an orthodontist's office.

I've been off traveling for two weeks...fun topic! Some shots of the mural projects downtown.

I'm impressed at all the cool murals folks are finding. I haven't really seen any out my way. I know there are tons in Atlanta though.

Yep, I agree! Nice capture!

The Snoopy is pretty cool, Tim! I bet the kids like seeing that when they go to the orthodontist.
And another great mural. I wonder if my family's related to that Hopper somewhere way back down the lines...

I finally got out and found some neat street art in the area. We had great weather to wander and explore a bit. This first character is out in front of a junkyard not too far away. We call him the "Muffler Man" (not sure why since there's really not a muffler around him, but if you say that, folks know what you're talking about). He's pretty freaky when you get a close look at him, and his left hand could be a bit questionable.

This is part of a collection of a few items in a local park. I think they had local artists contribute.

This one was out in front of the police station for the same town. It was probably from the same time as the other artists' contributions. The sign nearby called it "The Predator".

Out in front of another city's City Hall building were a couple of painted dogs. This was the more photogenic of the two.

And to finish up, this is a memorial near that same City Hall.

Nice one Oh.

Really like Mr. Frog lavanut. Muffler Man reminds me of my mechanic.

Some wonderful Street Art in your cities and towns folks! Love the murals on the buildings and the freestanding sculptures.. and the mobile art, I even love the folk art. I think where we live is enhanced by art. I've been away from home and couldn't get to some of the art I know about, but here is some art where I was..

Bicycle Rack Art!~

Am in the middle of a work binge as I start a new project so haven't been able to contribute for the last few days, but I've loved the street art contributions! Lisa, that frog is stunning! And Tim...Nighthawks has always been a favourite of mine.


Growing old disgracefully!

Livermore had local artists paint the electrical boxes around town. Here's one that's close to my shop.

What a great idea to decorate the electrical boxes in the city. Looks like it was done very well, and nicely photographed.
Nice work Stina, and all the others that contributed this week. All fun to see.:-)

Thanks, Terry. This is probably the most subtly painted box in town. There's some really colorful ones and funky ones and one that makes me go hmm? All in all, I think they're a great idea.

Californians have it going on when it comes to dressing up a town. And one of my favorite flowers. Nice!

Those bike racks are cool, Joayne!

Stina, I can honestly say I've never seen electrical boxes that were so lovely. :-)
