Monday Murals: Bee Yourself

 

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 10:01 a.m. my time today.

 

I literally stumbled on this mural.

Several streets in downtown Wichita, Kansas are one-way.

I was headed around the block to get to the one-way street I was looking for when I found this beauty on the back of a building.

At the time, I didn't realize it was an Avenue Art Days mural,

especially since there was no indication on the mural.

It is certainly colorful, though.

When I got home, I checked my map of Avenue Art Days murals

and learned it is called Bee Yourself.  It was created in 2019 by Jeff Jakovak and is located on the back of a building at 2100 East Douglas, Wichita, Kansas (USA).

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

It’s beautiful! Even my feeble eyes can see the brilliance of this. The murals you bring us only confirm my opinion, if given a choice how could someone not choose to decorate our world with colour, plain wall or a beautiful mural, I know which I would choose. Thank you for bringing this to us today.

This is a great mural for the dead of winter. The blue and orange are so vibrant, and summer flowers in January are perfect. I love the bee. Hope your stormy weather passes by without any
storm. Hugs-Erika

Sami said...

Wow, what a beauty Elizabeth!
From afar it looks like mosaics, maybe because it's painted on a brick wall, it has some texture.
Thanks for participating in Monday Murals

Sami said...
