Now that Eileen Hinckle has finished her new mural in Albany, it’s time to take another look at the completed work.
In case you haven’t seen it, go take a look for yourself. It’s on the back wall of a storage building, on the north side of the street in the 700 block of Southeast Second Avenue, across the street from Cool’s Feed and Pet Supply.
If you don’t want she shadows of power poles to interfere with the painting, go see it on a cloudy day.
The last time I wrote about this, on Nov. 9, Eileen was still putting the finishing touches on the piece. But now it looks done, complete with her signature, website and credit to the Oregon Arts Commission.
Check out her website for the artist’s background and other murals she has done.
If this one symbolizes anything, it seems to me to be our drive to explore the world and cast light in the dark. (hh)
