The Beginning of a New Mural

….just in time for Monday Murals

When I was over at WAAC last week I noticed this artist painting the side of our building. I can’t wait to see the final piece. Thanks to Sami for hosting Monday Murals.https://sami-colourfulworld.blogspot.com/2021/10/monday-mural-welcome-to-darwin.html

Monday Murals – September 20, 2021

thanks to Sami for hosting Monday Murals https://sami-colourfulworld.blogspot.com/2021/09/monday-mural-masked-faces.html

Today was a very productive day for my blog. I took a trip over to Marie Curtis Park and found subjects for three posts today. I’m always on the hunt for public art and murals. I hit the jackpot today.

On my walks through the neighbourhood I found more interesting murals in the alleyways behind the stores.

Monday Murals – July 12, 2021

….thanks to Sami for hosting Monday Murals https://sami-colourfulworld.blogspot.com/2021/07/monday-murals-banksia.html

Yesterday I discovered this storage bin in the children’s playground in my neighbourhood. I loved how someone took a relatively unattractive metal box and brought some life and joy to it with paint.

Monday Murals Next to the Keele Subway Station

….thanks to Sami for hosting Monday Murals

When the subway train comes out of the tunnel and travels above ground for a ways there are always interesting murals on the back of buildings that are only visible when you’re on the train or if you’re parked in a lot next to one of these buildings.

Monday Murals – Art Commissioned for Our Enjoyment

thanks to Sami from Colourful World

https://sami-colourfulworld.blogspot.com/2021/02/monday-mural-pop-of-colour.html for hosting Monday Murals

I love murals and street art. Sometimes we see things so often, almost daily, and we take it for granted. In my neighbourhood there are lots of murals that have been commissioned over the years that I had completely forgotten about when thinking of this challenge. Here are just a few of the murals that are close together in my neck of the woods.

This last one is my favourite. It almost feels like there is an actual Mountie up on a ladder painting the last bit of red on the wall. Notice his horse waiting for him on the other side of the bus shelter.
