Color Carnival: Yosemite Sam

Click to biggify!
While on vacation and looking for an apple farm in the quiet farming community of Velarde, New Mexico, along the banks of the Rio Grande, we came across this beautiful wall, each section with a different cartoon character and graffiti name. It was quite a contrast the the surrounding greenery, and very well done. I would have liked to have known about its origin. Yosemite Sam was my favorite panel.

Hi Sage, what a big contrast indeed! And I do love the art, such talented artists! What a coincidence of our posts, I've seen him hiding!

amazing.. to see this especially in the country...there are probably some budding artists in the gang graffiti world who can be hired to do some very art like stuff!

How cool. I love to see the "mural art" on the buildings in Philadelphia, the talent is able to be appreciated rather than considered vandalization

you are having no problem at all finding lots of color for these posts! bravo!

I've been a little absentee on blog surfing lately myself. But life has been full and so, blogging must sometimes wait.

Good to hear from you!
Love, Dana
