Since I began collecting photos of Portland’s street art for PortlandWild, I’ve found a large number of beautiful murals I didn’t know existed. However, one from my neighborhood remains a favorite. It appears to show two young girls, riding a flying wolf, underwater, accompanied by their cat, surrounded by manta rays, fish, clouds and their stuffed panda (who seems to have fallen off):

The image below is just part of the mural. Click the image to view the full mural at Portland Wild:

At the moment, I don’t know the title or the artists name but I hope to find out more in time.

These girls clearly know where they’re going and appear to be on a mission. I wish them well.

This would make such a good children’s series.
