The Prince portrait mural in Chanhassen has been all over the news around here. Bailie, aka, Purple Girl, visited Paisley Park back in April to pay tribute to Prince and she wanted to visit the new mural as well. Mom tagged along as the driver and photographer. Someone took a few shots of Mom and Bailie together. This one we thought was kind of artsy.
Mom and Bailie got lucky as all the hype about the Prince portrait mural had died down, and there were only a few people at the site making photos easy. It’s one big mural by Graham Hoete, Mr. G, from Sydney, Australia. He painted another Prince portrait mural in Sydney shortly after Prince died.
To get a feel for the size of the mural, that is Bailie sitting there front and center, not a fly! We couldn’t get all of the sides of the mural in even with the wide angle lens or Bailie was just too small.
Lastly, another better one of Mom and Bailie in front of the mural. The portrait sure is cool looking. It’s amazing Mr. G came all the way to Chanhassen at his own expense just to paint this. He really is a true fan!
