Yesterday in Berkeley Springs

It rained yesterday, but we were going on a studio tour so it didn't matter. We needed rain anyway.

I saw several murals and this one was my favorite!


The artist created a trompe l'oeil image of a covered bridge with a hitchhiking bear. Step in closer and you see that he built a recessed wall inside the garage door opening and painted in framing and a floor with a scene in the center. 

This is behind the Heath Studio Gallery so I assume Mr. Heath was the artist. Many of his paintings are humorous.

Mosaic Monday, Random-osity, and Monday Murals.
I drove out to the viewpoint called Prospect Peak. As you can see, the foliage is turning autumnal there.

I posted a winter view from this point in 2013.

  12. I like the mural too. It makes me think of the "tunnels" that the cartoon character Wile E. Coyote painted.
