That's going to look sweet. We need more of these kinds of projects.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

Well you're in luck.

The Yates parking garage will have two of it's towers covered in a mural as part of Art In Public Place's mural program.

Expect to hear about some more in the future... maybe even one in Riverside :)

Yes we do!
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Is this being paid for by the Laura Street facade improvement grant?  Really good use of the money if so.
When all else fails hug the dog.

Yes, this mural is being funded in part by the Laura Street Facade Grant Program.

FYI, the total cost was $6,500.00, of which I paid half.  Besides his art effort and work, he has to pay for insurance, the lift, bagging the meters etc etc.  The work is looking better than I thought it would..... and he is only just beginning.  I'll have to admit that in the beginning, I had feelings that I would rather spend the money on construction "things", but now I'm seeing that the art is a better way to spend the money... and it will last a long time.

I think so as well.  Shaun is an amazing guy and hes been working on his art for a while.  Once he was just a kid with a spray can.....

So happy to see that you did not capitalize the word "god" Stephen.  There is hope.  Thanks.

you used the word 'hope', ron.  It implies faith. Which means there is some for you.  Youre welcome.

How does the word 'hope' imply 'faith'?
