San Francisco Street Art 2

In the six years since our last visit to San Francisco, Valencia Street changed the most. It was teeming with small independent businesses offering handmade home wares, clothing, and fine art. One highlight was a visit to Dandelion Chocolate to sample their fine chocolate. The above collage is over an entire building. It's monumental.

This Valencia Street black-and-white mural by Joel Roger Weston caught my eye.

The colours give me ideas for a new textile that I'm working on.
