Murals

I heard that some artists had done murals on the retaining wall behind Rideaucrest.  This is something I have wanted to see done, so I thought I’d better check it out.  Here are some of the finished products.  I knew I should throw in a couple of pictures of Doug Fluhrer park as well, for context, but I didn’t.  It is a beautiful spot for a park, but it has been sort of left looking like a temporary park, and the city wants to extend Wellington St. through it, which I think would be very sad.  But the murals are a good start.  That wall was just aching for colour.

This reminds me of Lawren Harris’ early street scenes.

This puts me in mind of a nightmare I once had.  Green slime was coming out of the basement windows of City Hall!
