Urban Observations

I stumbled upon the sites bellow during a stroll through the north end of the Capital Hill neighborhood of Seattle. I like the idea of painting commonplace scenes that you would ordinarily walk past.

The lower painting with the blue wall and red door is awesome. I want to use words like "didactic" as I feel I should when referring to art of this skill level. But I'll struggle to keep it real and simply refer to it as "pimpin."

Chris- Thank you. Yeah, the weathered look is definitely what stopped me in the first place when I walked past these sites.

Johnhenry- thanks. That is a personal fav. It also tells a story, one that I don't know... whats up with the paint? Did they run out and forget? Oh, and I'll also settle for, "didactically pimpin".
