Long Description:
When driving thru San Francisco, the immediate concern is keeping a close eye on the traffic in the lanes around you. Often, your concentration on the traffic is go complete, you may be oblivious to how gorgeous the sky is, which is why this mural, on the Central Freeway overpass (many feet above ground level), is an appropriate reminder. Here you are, sailing thru the air on the freeway, above ground level, and in the clouds. Any mighty pretty clouds they are!

The Designer of the mural was Gary Graham (phone 530-477-1019), who is an Art Teacher at Antelope High School -Roseville Joint Unified Highschool District and has worked in collaboration on numerous murals around San Francisco. You can see more of his work at this website (visit link)

The actual address of the mural is:
Smart Stop Self Storage
190 Otis Street,
San Franciscco, Ca

On Mr. Graham's website, he indicates this 13,000 square foot mural, is visible in San Francisco from the freeway exiting the San Francisco Bay Bridge and the mural intends to mimic an Italianate Trompe-L'oiel facade, of roiling clouds passing thru a blue sky. The paint used for the project is Acrylic, and the work was completed between July and December 2011.

The Muralist was Peter Collins (phone 415-706-1462) of Peter Collins Art. You can see another of his murals at this website: The Joy of Life (1994. Ogden & Prentiss Streets, Bernal Heights). (visit link)
