Step Right In

I did a double take when I saw this image in the Burns Square neighborhood in Sarasota.  It's one of the most realistic murals I've seen recently.  I'm not sure when it showed up, but it was done by a guy named Skip Dyrda.  His website says he's a local artist who has been commissioned to produce several public art pieces throughout Florida, plus he's created 14 original pieces for the owner of the Publix grocery store chain based here in the Sunshine State.

I'm a big fan of urban murals. They add so much to a city.

Thats really cool! I did a double take, too! I knew the flower pot was painted on, but I couldnt tell the door was at first!

That IS a very good trompe-l'oeil!

I say what mural? Amazing. Until I really focused in on the flower pots I thought you were pulling my leg!

I'm like Kathy...flower pots helped me out.
Great shot.

That is so cool. I'll have to go to Burn's Square sometime, it's been awhile.

These murals are outstanding. We have a couple in old downtown Ocala. At first I thought they were store fronts! Very realistic!
