Greetings from Austin

We visited the last one of Austin’s famous standing murals on my list yestreen. This Greetings from Austin postcard mural is located on the side of Roadhouse Relics, an art gallery owned by artist Todd Sanders. The iconic Austin postcard was recreated by Sanders and a friend in 1998. After being weathered by the humid summers, the community had pitched in, maxing out the mural’s restoration project of $10,000. As of August 2013, the original painting has been restored and is still visited by locals and tourists alike.
