If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme is for you.  Just follow the Linky steps below.  Once you start looking you will find murals everywhere.  The "Monday Mural" meme goes live on Monday at 12,01AM, Perth,Western Australian time. Be sure to link back to this blog and visit your fellow posters. Looking forward to your mural finds this week.  Thanks, Sami.

Another mural from the inner city suburb of Subiaco, in the Rowland street carpark.

It was commissioned by the Subiaco Church of Christ, painted by artist Bee Tan and community volunteers,  and was inspired by the Biblical "Parable of the Seed", featuring silhouettes of local residents around the giant Boab tree.

  10. Beautiful one. Makes me think of Derby, The Kimberly, Kings Park and Le Petit Prince. Great times. Sadly now it´s the latter, in the swing...

    1. The colours remind me of Africa, but the Kimberleys (where I haven't been) would have the same shades. Thanks Iris.

  13. Dearest Sami,
    Love the way the top part fades into the sky and the bottom part kind of matches the pavement.
    Very well done.
    Hugs,

  15. This mural would be right at home in South Africa. Do you have any idea of the annual income of a good muralist?

    1. Yes when I saw it the colours reminded me of Africa. I have no idea how much muralists make David. Hope they make enough to live comfortably :)
