Art in the City


The Wall Mural in Tarpon Springs, Florida

Beautifully designed and built  by The Garden Fairies of Tarpon Springs

Please enlarge some of the more detailed photographs by clicking on them.


Every section is a work of art.


The beautiful face was calming overlooking the city



The details in the mural were fascinating



 She was holding a lovely bouquet


 The background tiles were amazing


Many pieces were in relief.

Put it all together and 
you find this gorgeous and colorful 
tile mural



A labor of love!  



The sign next to it indicates all those involved in the design and construction of this 
lovely mural.

Next time you come to Tarpon Springs, don't just visit the dock area, the city itself has much to offer.

This is such a neat mural! You got some great photos of it, and I like that it is dedicated to a woman.

We have something similar in St. Augustine that I just love.

Morning Jeannie Marie,

Do you live in Tarpon Springs? I live close by. Perhaps we could meet.

I have never seen these murals; they are really super. Thanks for sharing.

Have a good Blue Monday.

Hi Jeannie Marie, I have been to Tarpon Springs but I have not seen this gorgeous tile mural. It is stunning in every way and your photos have done it justice for sure.
A beautiful Blue Monday entry to day.

I love ceramic murals, thanks for sharing! I like the details in the fly-fishing tiles, and the fruits and round blur tiles.
