    Claudia Wagar…I saw her work on an Art Trails we did back around that time, 1990. She was the only artist that really impressed us that weekend. I wish you would have posted the goats playing cards mural. I think that is so weird we both had the same one for this week. Had you posted yours first, it would not have stopped me from posting. So funny!

    I love the name of Valley of the Moon. Was there one hot summer day and thought it should be named Valley of the Sun. Beautiful way to highlight the beauties of Sonoma Valley. Thanks, Ewok, for participating in this week’s Monday Mural. Happy hunting for the next one.

    What a wonderful mural! There is so much to see in this one – looks very inviting! Claudia Wagar has a website, and this one is titled “Blessings of Sonoma Valley”. Apparently there are others she has done, so you may see more! Can’t wait to see what else you may find! (I live and breathe “google” for so many things – in my last career, information gathering was my primary function! So naturally, I went straight to look her up and see what else she has done…)

    I like the way the artist used a mosaic to express her art work. You can find out more about the mural here

    An amazing mural and it’s so wonderful how everyone contributed information about the mural and its artist. I’d never heard Sonoma called the Valley of the Moon before, so that was new for me, too. Like Linda, I am a google addict.

      In response to your comments on my blog, that is a tiled mural, with irregular shaped tiles to make it mosaic. Also, I know Sidney and am using his photographs to raise funds to get the charcoal factory kids into school. 🙂

    I love all the angled lines of the vineyards (ours are in flat land and in long straight rows – not quite so romantic looking).

    I think you should wait a few weeks until you are stuck for a mural, then post your version of the card players so we can have a good laugh all over again.

    This mural has quite some detail, you could see something new everytime you pass it. I like the greens. Thanks for sharing!

    Oh, I like this one very much. It has a nostalgic feel and the way it is composed and executed is marvellous.

    I pass that mural 100 times a year in downtown Sonoma, and I know nothing about it either :-). I am so glad to meet a fellow San Franciscan online, glad you stopped by, and I promise to stop here more often too.

    There may not be much information about this mural, but it is definitely beautiful.
