Door art : Found in Capitola

Door art, found in Capitola Village, California.

Capitola Village in California’s Santa Cruz County offers sweeping views of the Monterey Bay and shows you colourful buildings that you’ll never get tired of photographing. A walk through the village is always such a delight. I’ve been to Capitola a couple of times and can swear it is a great place to stroll through not only because they are cute shops lining the streets, each with some wares to shop and window shop but also so much art to look at. Let’s begin with this door art – a painting of a dolphin.

The dolphin is not the only subject in this piece of art. There’s some sea water to go with the dolphin and in that water are a couple of islands some hilly ones at that. Look beyond the door to the frame and the wall around it and you will see there are palms and shells — even starfish on the ceiling — making the whole thing just fit in with the seaside town it was found in. This painting was spotted on a psychic’s door in Capitola.

Coming soon: more murals from Capitola, CA.

  6. An idyllic place. Walking through it must be a beautiful experience. Also, is the dolphin peeing?:)

    • It is, I’ll show you more of this place, soon. 🙂
      Peeing? 😀 Is it? Or is it the sea water that flows of its body when it makes that spring into the air?

      I hope you are doing well, Saru. 🙂

  7. It sounds like fun walking down a street and seeing decorated doors. What’s next? Thanks for contributing to this week’s Monday Mural.

  15. My God1 The 220 people are so sea loving! My favourite blue colour with lots of sea symbols! It’s just right for a Psychic’s home/place. Divya, I always had a weakness for doors and windows.. so much so I am apart of three different Doors-and-windows accounts on Instagram! 🙂 Somehow the reflect the personality of the owner in a better way than all the decor` and clothes! I would love to enter this 220 .. if you go do tell me what you found inside!

    • I’m not sure I want to see a psychic :D.
      But I must say that shade of blue is pretty inviting. 😉

      Wait doors and windows on instagram? Sounds cool. Let me in, I’d love to see it all.

      It so nice to see so many comments from you. That was another round of binge-reading I see. 🙂 <3
