Napa River mural, Napa

Today, we leave the (SF)Bay Area, behind and go into California’s wine country. This is a mural from Napa — a picture of the Napa River. I found Napa river mural in Downtown Napa, on a walk to the waterfront, some time back.

This artwork in is — I hear — by Steve Della Maggiora.

      I'm sure. I should be looking for more art around there, I guess.
      Thank you for visiting, SC. 🙂

      Me too. I took this pic way before I started linking up to Monday Murals. If I go that side in the near future, I'm sure I'll be returning with a better pic. 🙂

      Thank you for stopping by, Liz.

    A very detailed painting, more something for a museum.

    I guess I never knew that Napa had a waterfront.

      Now you do 😉
      Yeah Tom. It's a lovely place; great for an evening stroll. When the lights come on in the evenings, it is such a pretty sight.

      Thank you for dropping in here, today. 🙂

      That it is.
      And with all those building and boats, that sure was a great peek at the area.

      Welcome here, Nicol. 🙂

      Actually nomad, these are pics from a while ago. I found a meme for murals and thought I had an excuse to use them. But now I'm going to be looking at murals a little more seriously and taking pictures more consciously, hoping to link them up. 😉

      Thank you, Nomad. 🙂

    Your mural find reminds us that Napa actually had a functioning waterfront even though it's considered an inland town. Very cool historical mural. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

      The picture does talk of a time when the river was used for transportation, doesn't it? When I was there, I saw nothing but a little boat on the river.

      Thank YOU for hosting.
