Last summer we holidayed in Capitola on California’s Central Coast and while we were there, I happened upon several murals in this seaside village. On my last evening I found some very Capitola murals on a breezeway on Esplanade. The breezeway was poorly lit but I couldn’t helping taking pictures of them, as always. These murals seem to be pictures of that part of Capitola where the Capitola Venetian, the Capitola Wharf, Soquel Creek and the beach beside Soquel Creek are situated. These murals are painted by Beth Cleventine and sponsored by Janet Daniel.
Capitola Murals by Beth Cleventine:
These colourful buildings in a Mediterranean style of architecture is California’s first Condominium project. A part of this set of buildings is now a hotel and the rest are private houses and holiday homes. (More about this charming structure in the post — A balcony with a Venetian View)
More Capitola Murals:
Over the weekend we spent at Capitola, I spotted a painting on a psychic’s door, a rain-forest on the walls of a shop, a mural of Capitola village and the beach as seen from a hill, and even a seawall made of painted ceramic tiles which was a community project. With this post we wind up the series of posts on the murals found in Capitola, CA. (Next up, the murals of Reno, Nevada maybe. )
