Midwest Tour - 5/14/09
Friend Bob, took Sheila and me to Hocking Hills State Park today. On the way, we passed through Circleville, Ohio, to see the famous (at least in the surrounding region) "Circleville Mural". This is a depiction of the 100th anniversary of the Circleville Pumpkin Show, which originated in 1903. It was completed by Eric Henn (www.erichennmurals.com) in May 2007 and is an amazing 3D view of the street fair and parade. Mind you, this is actually a painting on the side of a building! Notice the extension of the real cornices into the painting. The two flags are also painted on. I created a larger than normal image, so the detail may be seen better. Pictures of the state park taken later today will come to you soon.
