David Boatwright's mural on Queen St.

David Boatwright's mural on Queen St., Charleston, S.C.
I am always tickled to find new work by artist David Boatwright and this work inspired by a Renoir painting certainly brightens up Queen St. and the view for the brunch diners at Poogan's Porch restaurant. I've watching the work in progress but this was the first time I got to see the completed mural. Oddly I still haven't found my face yet but I am sure it is tucked away in there somewhere. Harhar.

Thanks to Eater Charleston for the directory matching up the personalities with the faces in the mural. Check their site to match the faces with the names:
