City Paint 12.2 – 2020…Perfect Vision – Mural Complete

Wow….I guess it’s been a while since I posted the beginning of this mural in City Paint 12.1 – 2020…Perfect Vision.  I had stopped-by and taken photos of the progress on another four occasions, but had not managed to get it all together in posts to show the work…so here we are, ten months later (Really?!) and I’m just now sharing the end result…and as chance/fate would have it, this mural has already been covered and work is being done on a new one.  Stay tuned….

The panorama shots that I made didn’t turn-out real well…and my stitching capabilities are nil…so we’re left with three images that I hope you can imagine as an entire mural…looking from the left in the above image…to the middle in the photo below…

…and to the far right in the next image below…three panels depicting a perfect vision for the future…maybe…hoping that we can see as clearly….?

I’ve also provided a handful of close-up images to demonstrate the detail…to show the brush-strokes of the spray-painted mural.

I do know that parts of the mural were, indeed, spray-painted, as I’ve shared in the first post…but, I am not sure if the individual artists who contributed to the greater image used brushes or not.  If you remember the western mural that I shared in City Paint 6.5, you might also recall the images of the artist using an actual brush.

When sharing other artists’ work in these and other images, I attempt to give credit where it is due.  I do not know all of the artists’ names who participated in creating this huge mural, but I do know that Kier Defstar played a significant role, as I was so informed by the Korner Market staff when I inquired about the 2012 mural in City Paint 3.

If you look closely at the various images, you will be able to see other names, as well….  I have heard about some of these other artists and have only seen the names of still others of them…but here they are: Brute, Amer, Mark’s Ark, Aloha Family, Marlee, Lost Art, and Sily.  If there are other artists who worked on the mural, I apologize for not naming them…I simply don’t know who they are right now.  With any luck (?), some of the other artists might happen across the images on my blog and let me know that they, too, contributed to the masterpiece…….it’s happened before……

2020 Mural focus five

I have offered that the Aloha Family is a group of artists, simply because it appears in the below photo that they are…possibly the individual artists’ names are here, too?

2020 Mural focus six

And maybe this is another artist’s signature?

2020 Mural focus seven Samoa

Is the space-ship preparing to kidnap a large cat in the image below?  I’m not sure…but I do love the detail on the woman’s portrait….

2020 Mural focus eight

This is crazy beautiful as you stand next to it on the street and look at it face to face……

2020 Mural focus nine

And finally, what I understand to be the centerpiece of the mural, the exotic woman looking into and maybe even divining the future…she appears to be a mixture of the various phenotypes of our human species…intelligent, strong, beautiful……

Fields of Cedar Valley

From looking at a map of the area, I want to say that the draw (the “V” area just above the fence-posts) is either Pole Canyon or Four Mile Canyon…but I’m not certain…..  This was taken facing north from Cedar Fort Road…out in Utah County…a bit north of Eagle Mountain.

Another view of Twin Peaks and Bells Canyon from a different perspective…and yes, there are horses with riders…tiny in comparison with the grandness of the mountains…but you can find them about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom…very close to the left edge of the photo….

Slate Gorge on the Provo River

I made this photo in October, 2010 during my first visit to the area…high up in the Uinta Mountains of Summit County, Utah, north and east of the Salt Lake Valley.  This riverbed will soon (?) be under the crush of the raging snow-melt and we’ll have to wait until the late summer and fall to see the slate bottom again…..
