Title of the artwork: “The Rural Mail Carrier”
Artists: Peter Rotier
Happy Easter everyone!
I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend. Today’s post office of the day is West Bend, Wisconsin. In August of last year I took a road trip and stopped in to see the artwork. I’m really glad I did as the mural here is quite beautiful. This is also one very large building. I choose to use this picture you see above as it shows the mighty building standing predominately on the corner overlooking the neighborhood across the street and the downtown area off to the left.
I have to say I’m really drawn to the simplicity of the painting and the clean lines. The buildings look almost too perfect and the people in the painting clean and orderly.
What do you like about this painting?
Thanks for stopping by
