Monday Murals: Sunflower State


It's time once again to join Sami at Sami's Colourful World and her Monday Murals.  Even though it's still Sunday in my world, please be aware that Sami's mural link goes live at 11:01 a.m. my time today.

One day I was downtown looking for a specific mural

when I stumbled upon this beautiful mural called Sunflower State.

I really couldn't find out much about it, other than it was painted for Avenue Art Days

by Renee Duxler.

It was painted in 2017 and is located on the side of the Hell Bomb Tattoo Parlor at 1115 E Douglas, Wichita, Kansas (USA).  And as I've mentioned recently to others, Kansas is called the Sunflower State.  It's even on our vehicle license plates.

If you enjoy murals from around the world, please don't forget to visit Monday Murals at Sami's Colourful World.

Looks like a bull? We have one at the ceiling and he sure would love it - as my Dad.
My Mum had his coffin covered in those. It was beautiful. (In sunflowers, not bulls, I hear her correcting this!)

Cool mural. Maybe I should paint sunflowers on the side of the house. That way the bunnies can't eat them. Enjoy your day!

What could be better than a sunflower patchwork buffalo?? Fun.

DVArtist said...

Ohhhh I really like this. There is something strong with the singleness of the buffalo.

Jeanie said...

Now THIS one is the best! I just love it -- so cheerful and great color and concept!

I love this buffalo. The patchwork is cool and the sunflowers are perfect for your state and just the overall pattern also. Nice public art this week. Happy rest of your weekend Hugs-Erika

Lots of buffalo art up this way. ;)

That's a really cool one. The flowers seem to soften the image of the buffalo. :)

Sweet find, Elizabeth. :)
Have a good week,

Nice kind of mural with those geometrical patchwork quilt in paint and then also a finished buffalo. Good work of the artist.

I think this is so cute, like a quilt. I just realized that Kansas is one of 3-4 states that I have not been to!!!
That will be rectified when/if we can ever take a road trip again!
