About four years ago I shared some pictures of a mural in Manteca in a post titled Cruising Manteca.
I mentioned in the post that Manteca had quite a few large murals in the downtown area. I was in Manteca today and took pictures of some of them. At some point I may write a little more about the murals, but mainly tonight you will just see pictures.
This mural caught my eye as I pulled into the Manteca library parking lot. The mural is titled Manteca Snow. Of course it is the blossoms in the orchards that look like snow. I really like driving down I-5 in the spring and looking out over acres of orchards that look like fields of snow, so I truly understand the title.
This is a great mural with the painted frame. It really looks three dimensional. Do you see the cup of tea or coffee and the little bird on the sill? Look closely.
The next three murals are on a wall to the west of the library. I am sure that they have names, but I don’t have time to look them up tonight. I may write more about each of them sometime in the future. For now, only a brief description will be given.
There are some great images in these murals. There are a couple more murals in the park that surrounds the library, but I will post pictures of them at a later time.
