Recently my friend Madeline suggested using murals as a backdrop for some of my portraits.  Since Austin has a plethora of murals, I decided to do some research and take a ride with Madeline to check some of them out.  I’ve noticed images of a few of the Austin themed murals on postcards at local gift shops. Using these for backgrounds can be a fun way to add some color to your portraits.  Below are the 7 we discovered on our adventure.

1.  LOVE FROM AUSTIN – 720 S. 1st Street

You’ll find this mural located on the side of shop called Prima Dora.

 2.  GREETINGS FROM AUSTIN – 720 S 1st Street
