This mural includes the west and south walls of a garage building and was painted in 2014 by Drake “Drastik” Gann.
He included the graffiti lettering of the words “Laugh, Love and Life.” The mural is painted from a photo of the artist’s daughter painting on an easel. The message “The ThingsThat shine in Life Ain’t Always Gold” is included in the lower right of the south wall of the mural.
The mural can be best viewed by standing back from the southwest corner so that the two walls make one scene and both the left and right sides of the easel can be seen. The stylized red heart is both the letter “o” in the word love and the dot over the letter “i” in the word life. See additional photos below. (Source: conversation with the artist)
