Jessica Gonzales paints (& paints...) the Rialto

If you've driven along Congress Street into downtown from the east, you've seen two murals on the east side of the Rialto Theatre. (That was especially true years ago before there was a building blocking the view.) Joe Pagac used to paint most of them.

Now Jessica Gonzales paints here. BG Boyd Photography sent a photo from his drone of Jessica and her husband painting on November 16th:
To give you an idea of the murals that Jessica is creating, I picked a few from her Instagram page @jessicagonzalesart. They're in order from November 17, 2022 (the most recent) at the top to February 13, 2019 (the earliest) at the end.

(Update, June 30, 2023: There are more recent murals in today's post A few of Jessica Gonzales' many Rialto murals.)

The February 13, 2019 murals were her first.

The man and monkey in the photo above came from Joe Pagac, who painted the murals before Jessica. Here's a post with examples — from July 16, 2019 — A history of Joe Pagac's little man on the Rialto.
