This mural is in downtown Salem, Oregon on the back of the Elsinore Theatre. It was painted in 1984 by art professor Jim Mattingly. It is titled “Theatrical Heartscape” and depicts characters from vaudeville because the theatre has a long history of vaudeville. On the mural are—W.C. Fields, Theda Bara, Marlene Dietrich, and Charlie Chaplin
(I just love my String of Pearls plant that I purchased last summer at our local Farmer’s Market. It sits on the a southern facing windowsill in my bedroom and really seems to like the filtered sunlight that streams thru as it has been steadily growing beautifully.)
