Painted Cities

In the town that I live in and other cities and towns around the world there is beautiful art painted on buildings, cows, bulls, guitars, blue jeans, goats, bears and other objects. Today I want to share a few of these fine works of art in my town of Durham, North Carolina. So when you visit any city, be sure to have your eyes open and camera ready to take photos of these wonderful works of art, by some incredible artist! Enjoy the view!
