New Shenandoah Mural

When I learned that a new mural was being painted in Strasburg, I went to see it. After all, I photographed last year's murals in progress. These are organized by a small nonprofit, Staufferstadt Arts.
Artist Erik Burke
This artist's medium is outdoor spray paint. Here he is working on a realistic depiction of grandparents and a baby. 

On Sunday I went back to see the finished mural, which turned out to be two separate images. I puzzled over the blue one, but since the signature block says "Shenandoah," I think this represents the river.

  2. ...amazing work with a spray can.

  3. I really like the one of the baby and grandparents.

  4. The artist is very talented with spray paint!
