I posted many photos on my old blog. On this new iteration of the Petrini Page, I intend to keep posting my own photography, including on “Photo Fridays,” starting now.
I was walking in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood and came across a street artist putting the finishing touches on a mural. I later learned that her name is Lauren Asta, that she’s based in San Francisco, and that she travels around the country painting freehand murals and “doodle art” on any wall she can get her hands on. As I watched her work, I was struck not only by the amazing mural she was creating, but by the little dog and fuchsia water bottle that sat on a ledge on the wall, with those amazing black and white doodles as a backdrop.
