"If you can't make it good, make it big and paint it orange." - an old girlfriend of Andrew Taylor's

There's an interesting mural by john osgood going up right outside my office window, and there's much debate about it among my co-workers... As Arthur says, great works of art are often polarizing, people either love 'em or hate 'em. I'm not sure it's a great work of art, or that the building is a great work of architecture, but I am a huge fan of the orange. It's a bright spot on gloomy days, and it makes me laugh hysterically that the Parnell's Mini Mart and Lotto Sign is right below it. There's also some community debate about it. It does add something to the neighborhood.

I really hope they're not finished, though. Particularly with the bird trying to be a fish. Or is it a fish trying to be a bird?

Randomly, I happened to walk by his mural on 85th in Greenwood. I liked it a lot. I thought it was colorful, artistic, and fun to look at. I don't get what the fuss is all about. Who wants to look at a blank wall? (Not me)
