I love my city. It brings me such joy discovering new murals and small tags along the streets. These are some of the latest pieces my eyes have spied during a jaunt with my pal, Linda, and while walking the ever-rambunctious Berkeley Buster DeVoe. Long Beach, keep giving me visual inspiration and pleasant surprises and I’ll have to stay a while. Tee hee!

The first can be found on Fourth Street at Linden Avenue, up the street from Fingerprints record store. The others were spotted at various walls along Pine Avenue. I’m looking forward to discovering some vibrant, fascinating pieces while in Spain and Portugal. Stay tuned!

I love finding beauty in the most ordinary, mundane things. Take for instance these City of Long Beach utility boxes — nothing special by any stretch of the imagination. Or are they? These are just a few of many throughout my city that have given me pause. They’re bright, vibrant and intriguing. And they just put a smile on my face. I wonder if others have taken notice of these functional works of art.
