Monday Mural: blackbirds singing in the dead of night

Here's more of the Doty-Polka mural I showed you last week.  It's painted on both the corrugated wall of the warehouse and the front of the loading dock.  Hence the contrast in texture and the slightly 3-D effect.  Doty is the muralist I've showed you who paints people with more than two eyes.  Now he's branching out to other species.

If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme's for you.  Just follow the Linky steps below.  You get to decide what constitutes a mural.  Once you start looking, you find them everywhere.  Be sure to link back to this blog and to visit your fellow posters.  Looking forward to the mural finds posted this week.

Update:  A fellow Oaklander sent an email with more information on the group that did this mural.  She say the artists represented in the whole piece are Ernest Doty, Cannon Dill, Koleo Koleoptere and David Polka.   I didn't know that, so thanks a lot for the extra info, Janet.

  11. The artist either really likes Picasso or genetic modification. I guess either one works.
