    I would love to know the response to the mural. The colors are vivid and I like it alot, but you know there are those who don’t like iconic images being changed.

  4. Wonderful share, Rona! I briefly met Eduardo while he was finishing 1 of 2 murals in Los Angeles last year. It was amazing to see how fast they were working to complete it in about 10 days. I waved to them each time I passed by their work site.

    Hi Rona: Your post has inspired me to look and compare Gustav Klimt’s the Kiss and this one. I am amazed at the similarities! Although I am aware of this i conic photo, it never came to my mind that Klimt’s the Kiss and this one seemed to connect with each other! It is amazing! Art is not only universal but infectious! Thank you for another excellent post!
