The "Ralph's Door," mural depicted a man wedged inside a shower, apparently trying to not be sucked down an oversized drain. An actual puddle appeared on the sidewalk below this mural.

The shower head was the oversized rain type head. It sprayed large drops from only a few of its holes. The artist's web site (www.connybleul.com) was painted in tiny letters to the left of the shower head.

The man, dressed in formal attire, was wedged inside the shower. His right heel was placed hard against the lock for the door upon which the mural was painted. Notice the door knob just to the left of the hot/cold, on/off shower lever.

The drain at the bottom of the mural was unplugged and rapidly draining a torrent of water. A bar of soap lay next to the drain. The name on the bar of soap was, "Conny."
