Monday Mural: Solano Way

Solano Way in East Oakland is chock full of street art, much of it changing over time.  I've previously shown you many compositions here from local artists.  This lovely gal looks like she comes from the cover of a 1950s detective novel.  She is surrounded by several "pieces" or signatures of artists.  The intention is to make them so stylized and ingenious that reading them is a challenge.  Or, in my case, impossible.

Welcome to Monday Mural:  if you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme's for you.  You decide what constitutes a mural.  Once you start looking, you find them everywhere.  Be sure to link back to this blog and visit your fellow posters.  Looking forward to your mural finds posted this week.  Google+ users, please configure your post so we all can leave a comment.  Thanks.  We're still trying to figure out why the Linky is not appearing, so please follow the links meme participants leave with their comments.

 “ Be kind; everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”  Rev. John Watson
