Speed Mural Painting

Got this video of a local mural being painted from our local web service twitter feed...

Abundance For All: Raining Acorns from Bob von Elgg on Vimeo.

It's actually only a few blocks from my house.


  1. And I thought painting my bedroom was tedious. I can't imagine painting the tops of the acorns. It came out well though.

  2. Glenna, even the task of painting a blank wall without spilling paint on the floor fills me with trepidation.

    Painting acorns might be a little more interesting than just going up and down with a roller anyway.

    There are quite a few muralists in Santa Cruz. I met an interesting one during the annual Open Studios, and I may post about that here at some point. I keep threatening to, anyway.

  3. A cool clip with a nice result.

    I took one before and one after photo of a mural near my house, but nothing nearly as ambitious as this.

  4. It is positioned to be a nice first thing to see as you drive into town from Highway One North. I'm kind of surprised that Safeway went with something by a local that isn't strictly advertising.
