This mural isn't my very favorite one, but I love the interplay between the painted surface of the wall and the live grasses planted in front of it, and the way the angle of the roof of the structure at the far end of the wall is echoed in the real building behind it.
I can almost imagine this man in the blue shirt turning from his work in the garden, to part the grasses so that he can get a better look at the real world outside his painting.
This is what I love about public art--it interacts with its environment in a way that art in a museum can never do. It lives in our world.
