But when I drove to Bull Creek Shopping Centre for last week's murals I spotted it again and made a mental note to visit it on the way back home.
The gigantic mural 40 x 14 mt (131 x 46 ft), which was finished in October 2018, was painted on the back wall of the Faith Community Church in the suburb of Willetton, (corner of Roe Highway and South Street), by Perth artist Rachelle Dusting, and showcases the Red-tailed Black Cockatoo, the Firewood Banksia and the Flooded Gum, which can all be found in the area.
The title "Close to Home" was given by the artist as the mural is literally close to her home and she can even spot part of it from her house.
This artwork was the first one created under the City of Canning (my local council) new policy that requires developers to allocate a percentage of the development cost to fund public art in the area.
