Pretty and chain link fence are things I hadn't thought of together until I saw the mural on Tehama between 5th and 6th created under the direction of Sharon Anderson.

It has an overall lilac-colored chain link fence pattern swooping through it which is between pretty and beautiful. If one hadn't witnessed chain link fences, it would look like a well-done, graceful pattern of undulating diamonds.

Behind the lilac diamonds are children, standing, floating, seeming distinctly individual and basically happy.

And around the diamonds and kids of another pattern , black, irregular, blobby, like dappled nature lovely in black.
