Summer’s End and Olympics Begin

Just as Summer is ending soon, the Olympics begin.

It makes sense to reap Summer’s bounty before it fades — be it memories of carefree, less stressful days, or travel and being at the beach or even with Nature’s provision.

I thought these Nature murals were a wonderful to show off Ocala, Florida and the bounty of Her regional produce, while at the same time beautifying the city’s water tanks. I really like their colorful, illustrated style.

As the Olympics begin with the Opening Ceremonies this Friday — tomorrow evening — in Rio, here’s an updated mural announcement on my last post regarding Eduardo Kobra.

His longest mural will be unveiled at the start of the Olympics. Click the image to watch the movie.

Although not in Rio or associated with the Olympics per se, this Corpus Christi mural is so vibrant with a Latino flair that I thought it made sense to post with the timing of the Olympics. It’s entitled “Endless Sunset” by Sandra Gonzalez of Laredo.

Some Sunny Summer Murals

Here are some bright and colorful patterned sunny summer murals.

These remind me of one of my favorite kid pastimes with Spirograph, but taken to the next level.
