This image was also taken by the wonderful Candace Butler, whose website is: http://candacebutler.com.
The mural is by Diana Garcia.
Tea and coffee-stained paper, collage, watercolour, gouache & graphite…
Minerals, crystals, earth, groundedness •†• butterfly, transcendence…

and the orbs, the forests, mountains, and rivers, are not small themes …
Walt Whitman, from the preface to Leaves of Grass
This image is also from the wonderful Candace Butler's website: http://candacebutler.com. Candace is a lovely (and dizzyingly creative and accomplished) person and has given me permission to share some of her images of street art on Abbot Kinney.

I was stomping around my old Venice Beach neighbourhood (that is, online), and I came upon the wonderful Candace Butler's website: http://candacebutler.com. Apart from being a lovely (and dizzyingly creative and accomplished) person, she is also generous, and has given me permission to share her image of some street art on Abbot Kinney.
