Small Wonders

Earlier this year I was walking along Venice Boulevard when I saw the tiniest little piece of street art, that simply charmed me. Last night, as I was strolling along Abbot Kinney Boulevard, I just happened to look down at the right time to see another small wonder by what looks to be the same artist. A lady (rat?) and gentlemen and their bucking bronco exploring Venice!

We had just been talking about how a Rag & Bone store has no business being on Abbot Kinney in Venice, and how swiftly we'd gone from no chains to THAT kind of chain, and how weird and dumb it is, and how it won't last (retail rents are already plummeting, Venice, take heart and hang in there!), when I spotted this little work that is just the kind of treasure you want to see in Venice - or anywhere, for that matter.

Something fun, something whimsical, something to surprise and enchant you as you go along your way. Keep your eyes open for the little day makers that let you know it's all still cool.

'Cause it is.
