Painting of the Day: Dandelion

"Dandelion" by Mona Caron is a mural painted in San Francisco. The artist took progress pictures of her art piece and then made the pictures into a beautiful gif.


Quoted from her website:
"They may be tiny but they break through concrete. They are everywhere and yet unseen. And the more they get stepped on, the stronger they grow back. 
This is a series of paintings of urban weeds, some of them on-site animations, created as a tribute to the resilience of all those beings who no one made room for, were not part of the plan, and yet keep coming back, pushing through and rising up.
I look for weeds in the city streets near a wall I'm about to paint. When I find a particularly heroic one growing through the pavement, I paint it big, at a scale inversely proportional to the attention and regard it gets."
