trompe l'oeil dragon

I've never seen this before!  I guess I don't normally walk from the railyard towards what was the Sanbusco Center - so I didn't see this wonderful mural by John Pugh on the back of the Jean Cocteau Cinema.  The cinema is now owned by George R. R. Martin (we owe him a big debt of thanks for saving it), and he commissioned this work - apparently the woman is a representation of his wife Parris McBride, when young (and that had me looking her up, and I'm please to report that (a) they are cat people and (b) she's into wolf rescue).  There's more to the mural - I'll be back, and taking more shots of it, I'm sure ...
