Murals being (not quite) made, Part 30c

I've been working through every one of my photos taken since early 2016. Along the way, I found some mural photos that haven't been posted to this blog yet. I showed the first of them on January 26; I'll show the rest in the next few blog entries.

I've been waiting for this mural. I first found it on March 7, 2015, as artist Jason Cross was painting what would turn out to be one of at least two or three versions. That first blog entry is Murals being made, part 30a; I posted it on November 9, 2015.

I drive by the wall from time to time. As it turned out, on November 8, 2015 — just the day before Part 30a was scheduled to be posted — I noticed some changes. So I took photos and posted them a week later, on November 16, as Murals being made (not finished), part 30b. Here's the last photo from that blog entry:

Next, two photos of the middle and the right end being changed (I think!) on May 2, 2016. The colors aren't very accurate:

Since then, I've driven by and haven't noticed any obvious changes except that the north (right) end is completely different from the version I showed above. So I decided to add this blog entry, Part 30c. Here's the photo of the right end that I took on October 25, 2016:

I haven't noticed any changes in nearly a year and a half since then. A lot of the mural elements have white space between them and the background. Maybe the artist is planning more changes, too? If I do spot any obvious changes as I drive by at 35 mph, I'll add Part 30d.

Update (March, 2019): Last month, on a stormy February 3rd, I drove along this familiar part of Alvernon and noticed that the mural was no more. You can see what's (probably) the end of the story in Murals being (un-)made, Part 30d.
