I missed this photo and article by Barbara Thornburg of a trompe l'oeil garage door painted as if it were a library when it was published on 9/17/09, but I love that mystery author Robert Crais came upon the house and "library door' the other day. This mural was painted in 2005 by artist Don Gray on Lee Dembart's garage door. Lee Dembart was a fromer editorial writer and book reviewer for the LA Times.
I was going to paint my garage door green, but this is so much more intriguing!
