Happy Halloween from El Chuco!

Here's a cool witch painted on the window of the Dollar Plus Discount store at 227 East San Antonio Avenue (see other photos of the building in this blog). Have a great Halloween, and hope to see some of y'all at the Dia de los Muertos celebrations that will be going throughout El Chuco later this month (and early November)! Photo taken October 5, 2006.

That's one of those things about El Paso you take for granted - I almost never see advertising or decoration painted on shop windows anymore, and it's such a normal thing in El Paso.

And have you ever seen someone actually paint one of those window murals? It's amazing how fast they are.

They are lightning fast! It's kind of an art unto itself (antiart?). I really like a lot of the hand-painted lettering you see on many of the buildings, too. It's a definite skill!
