This latest billboard work has been out for a while and it is just so appropriate for Laredo after flooding and violence across. I had wanted to post this one when the artists first put it up but I got caught up with other things. I really admire his/their creative expression of collective community emotions.
It came to mind today when I was talking to a friend about trompe l’oeil murals in the downtown area. My friends and I have many ideas, a lot of energy but not enough time and definitely not enough moola.
For now, I will admire other artists’ mural work and maybe one of these days I can help get one up in one of the abandoned warehouses downtown.
