So, it's bitterly, bitterly cold outside. Too cold to spend too much time wandering around, looking for spring.

Instead, I'm gonna post a few photos of murals that I really adore. This one is even botanically-themed:

This is at PS 20 in the Lower East Side. School murals really get me; they're so aspirational and positive. I was going to this school to donate some old magazines to the art department (great for collages) and the interior also had this great looking mosaic mural:

In my next post, I've got a shot of a mural at a high school, with the same positive messages taking on a form that presumably relates more to teens. That one's good, too, but the bold, almost abstract images on an elementary school's walls can't be beat.
