Sail away


There are various paintings done on small, box like rooms. This one is outside a school (in Abu Halifa). Makes the surrounding a little colourful in the otherwise beige, sand filled country. I don't know what's inside .... Electricity meters I presume.

very innovative. A good way to keep the walls free posters and grafitti etc. Might not work here.

Nice mural. An easy way to showcase local artist and to brighten up the area.

Andrea said...

Beautiful. Someone is very artistic.

Mandy said...

What a lovely way to brighten the place up.

Another thoughtful photo. Makes me think of seaside holidays!

Very thoughtful. I agree with Amrita - it might not work here. The boat seems to be in tricolor. It doesn't have sails otherwise I would have thought it is a dhow from India...

Kerri said...

I think this is a great idea! And very pretty too!

Beautiful mural. You have a superb eye.

Thanks, BTW for visiting the Beast site and leaving a comment.

Here is an artsy pic from last weekend. My son appreciating art in the way only an 11 year old boy can:

Yes, that is a really great mural. Very soothing to the eye. I enjoy reading all your comments you have posted on my blog. It was fun to go back and revisit those that were posted even last year. BTW, I love that camera you have!
