WEST SEATTLE ART: Celebrating nature

Next time you go to The Junction, you might see orcas. These are newly painted outside Flying Apron (4709 California SW) by West Seattle artist Desmond Hansen. Earlier this month, he painted another nature-celebrating mural in a less-visible spot:

You can see that along the western section of the Thistle Street stairway, between Gatewood and Lincoln Park.

    Beautiful! We’re so fortunate to have him in our community. Every piece of his provokes reflection and an emotional response when I pass it.

    I like the idea of putting these murals in more out-of-the-way places, like the Thistle Street stairs.  Like a little treat when you go in those kind of places.

    Does he sell these as a lithograph?

    I’d really be interested in the Killer Whales one, it is OUTSTANDING!!!
