This is the third of three postings showing more close up images from the Monkey Mural. Again, forgive the quality of some of these snapshots. The mural is in Phoenix, hence the D-Backs uniform. The stained glass background resembles the one at my church. I wear a cross similar to the one on the pulpit. Note […]

This mural has two sides; the left side shows a savannah environment; the right side depicts a jungle. The trees from each side meet to offer a “canopy” above where a bed will go. The owner of the house is called “Daisy” so, as a personal touch, I added a few daisies along the bottom […]
