This commemorative mural is very much an all-in-one presentation. It is very high, up and hard to shoot.

    1. I remember you saying how much you were intrigued by the wild west history of N. America.
      Rightly so! It was a unique time, not always good for the native inhabitants or settlers, unfortunately.
      Nonetheless, I have always been romanticized by it.
      When I was a little girl, I wanted to grow up and be a saloon girl. πŸ™‚

      1. I would have been in the bar with a Jack Daniels just listening your sing… πŸ˜€

        When was a kid I always apache – “Geronimo” always beats the “pale faces” at that time – run around a lot in shorts and stripped to the waist so I was brown by the sun while I dreamed I was redskin… πŸ˜€

        1. “lol” Well, Jack Daniels, I, the saloon chanteuse, would have taken you up the stairs.
          Or, you could have taken me on your beautiful white horse for your bride!
          Le Drake, you bring out the romantic! πŸ˜€ ❀

  1. Look at this one, wow and you go back and get a pic of the whole frame of reference, building included and they go together so well, the color of the brick and then the scene. I LOVE THIS! Reminds me of a lot of the buildings on main street where I grew up in Farmington New Mexico. πŸ™‚

    1. Sounds like a neat place to grow up! I love old architecture. That’s why I live in a building that’s over 100 years old. Much more romantic character. πŸ™‚

  2. Nice to meet you Resa! Very cool blog. Fort Worth, TX has a fantastic mural in downtown (several, but one is outstanding) with a cattle drive of longhorn steers.

Speak your art mind!
