Mural by Jo Brown behind the Sears Store
This delightful period piece trompe l'oeil ("deceive-the-eye") mural has been an Astoria landmark for a number of years now. This is only a piece. It takes up the entire back of the Sears store on the River Walk. The reason for the odd angle, and probably the reason I haven't done more with it, is because there are always real trucks here unloading and trucks, cars, and SUVs parked in front of it. By the way, the pilings there are part of the artwork. I expect to post more scenes from it over the next few days. You can also see the "before" pictures and more of the images on Jo Brown's web site. Also click on the keywords below for more of her work on this blog.
