“The Legends of Pittsburgh mural was a mural of some of the ‘Burgh’s all time best baseball players from both the Pirates and the Homestead Grays. It was an enlargement of a painting that Michael Malle did, with players selected by the Pirates to represent Pittsburgh’s baseball history. From left to right: Kiki Cuyler, Ralph Kiner, Fred Clarke, Max Carey, Paul and Lloyd Waner, Danny Murtaugh, Josh Gibson, Arky Vaughn, Willie Stargell, Pie Traynor (kneeling), Bill Mazeroski, Roberto Clemente and Honus Wagner.” Pittsburgh Murals and Public Art
As you get gas at the BP station on Route A1A, you can see the colorful Wildflower mural that artist Steven Teller has been painting on this house, which is his studio. There’s an article in the St Augustine Record about his artwork… “displayed Mexican petunias, dune daisies and Gaillardia blanket flowers. He said he noticed that wildflowers became more abundant in Vilano Beach after two hurricanes (Irma,Matthew) rocked the area and spread seeds.”
Getting gas at night is the second photo. Glad our hostess Joanne drove by in the daylight so we could photograph the mural again, not just in the car headlights.
I was headed to I-279 and pulled into Phineas Street on the North Side to capture beloved Pittsburgh Pirate, Roberto Clemente’s likeness on this building.
Artist Jeremy Raymer painted this stunning mural. Here’s an article written by Bob Bauder about the painting.
The building that served as the “canvas” for Baseball Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente’s portrait is Verdetto’s Bar and Restaurant.
Happy Go Lucky Hearts Hotel (and Hostel) In Berlin’s Charlottenburg neighborhood.
Mural Art by Dom Browne, artist from Kildare Ireland. This is a LOT of mural painting, Dom.
Click here to see a gallery of the details of Mr. Browne’s Happy Go Lucky Hearts painting. You will find lots of recognizable iconic images- Bruce Lee, Rich Uncle Pennybags, Mary Poppins, Jack Nicholson, Curt Kobain, minions, emojis, Batman, to name a few
The colorful Happy Go Lucky Hotel really stands out- right next door are regular buildings.
Back home in Pittsburgh now but here’s an evening stroll from my hotel to the old city center in Reykjavik last week. Laugavegur was the street. It got dark on my way back. You can see the sea at the end of a couple of the streets. Open candles in windows were inviting
“Don’t Mess with a Knitter” tattoo on upper arm- the canvas of the old woman in the window of the closed Art Gallery so no chance to give the artist credit.
Sunday morning, I walked from the train to the Schoenefeld Airport and noticed the scaffolding was down and the painting of the mural complete.
I saw the artist’s name, Steven Karlstedt. You might remember the photo of the painting of the mural when I arrived a couple of weeks ago.
Photographed on March 31st
Farewell until my next visit.
