Monday Mural

It is nothing too wonderful and I have no idea now where it is. But painting on such a large scale amazes me. Hey, I posted something. So there.

  2. I like it too. I suspect a kookaburra in the area is now rare.
    You post MUCH more often than I do, and I am always impressed.

    1. Thanks EC. I have had have the occasional day off of late. I could say it is about time, and is at times, but motivation to write is the real issue, yet people are always so complimentary. Did I see a figure today that four million blog posts are made around the world each day? Some may suggest blogs are dying. I think not.

    2. I'm really happy to see that statistic. I thought blogs were becoming known as old fashioned, but they're my favourite part of the internet and I hope they survive and thrive in great numbers.

  3. Kookaburra sits in an old gum tree!!

    Maybe on an old school/Uni building - like the 'show' - bring the country to the city

    1. Not a song or your childhood Cathy, but certainly one of mine, and we used to do it in rounds.

  5. That is a classic case of a mural improving a very dull building. Bonza.

    1. Cro, dull is an understatement, but at least the building is still standing, unlike some recent high rise apartment buildings here.

  7. Painting on a big canvas is OK but a whole wall ? I think it needs some calculations, in any case it's well done !

    1. Gattina, I just can't image how they paint at such a large scale, and usually get the proportions right.

  8. I like it. The colours are soothing yet noticeable.

  9. Thanks River. It is not a bright mural, but perhaps that is partly my camera.

  10. Looks like an Australian scene and like River it looks good without being gawdy.

  11. The style looks familiar Andrew, I like the colours very much. So much better than a boring old wall right!

    1. Grace, very much better than a blank concrete wall.

  12. There is something about these paintings in the wild. I see them around here and I stand in awe. Such a huge job, such diligence and creativity.

    1. WWW, the scale is what always strikes me. How to think big?

  13. You seem to have a great many murals there - lucky you. I do like outdoor art on a big scale. The colours are somewhat muted on this piece, but very in tune with nature.

    1. Like yours Jenny, it is a big country and can have big murals, although I must say the ones I post are pretty well inner city.
