Stop and Smell the Roses Mural - Street Murals

Item details

Ankeny at Prairie Trail
12’ x 20’ Exterior Mural
Acrylic on brick

As my second installment at Prairie Trail, bright, vibrant florals collaged with modern calligraphy are intended to enhance the blossoming, already vibrant community with an authentic, unique feel pairing themes of relaxation and energy. This design acts as a pop of color and attention grabber for photo opps and a compliment/homage to the “Wish You Were Here” mural nearby.

The design encourages people to relax and take time out of one’s busy schedule to enjoy the beauty of life with a deeper appreciation of the world around us.


FUN FACT! You may notice I’m nine months pregnant in these progress photos…my son was born the very next day :)
