2020 Ornaments, On A Green Chirstmas Trees, As A Mythic Symbol, Eugene, Oregon
image

A bird was created from two red sparkily balls, one atop the other. The yellow beak and silver eyes caused the balls to resemble a red bird. The top hat and star on its chest, gave the bird ornament a formal appearance. A glass ornament, which looked like a polar bear, was hung on a green Christmas tree. The reason we called it fuzzy was because it was slightly out of focus. A white rabbit was dressed in a fancy outfit. The rabbit had wings which made it resemble an angel. A tiny wooden bird house was hung as an ornament. A snowman and the word, "Welcome," were painted on the front of the bird house. A fake glass candy cane hung from the tree to the left of the bird house.

The date the mural was painted low on the wall under the handle of one of the pool cues. That date read, "2013."

The W on the mug stood for Wunderbar. Signs on the side of the wall of the front porch identified this as the "G Street Wunderbar." A chalk sign advertised, "Trivia 8pm Karaoke 10pm." A long mural was painted on the side of the G Street Wunderbar in Davis, California. The mural was shaded by trees, creating less than ideal contrast.
