Trompe L'oeil

I know where that is, I think. Isn't that painted on the side of a building near the bridge?

That's correct, the building is One Bridge Place. I shot the photo while sitting in traffic on the bridge this morning. I see it most mornings coming to work. I photographed the artist painting it many years ago for some magazine article or something. I think it's an asset to the community (better than a blank wall) but it's a mystery why the artist chose that subject matter. There's a lot of Victorian architecture around here.. but nothing like those in the painting.

I always thought he was trying to copy the "Painted Ladies" in San Francisco.
