I love this sunflower one with character in every flower.
This one inspired by old advertising posters is outside the local Safeway:
My favorites though are those by local artist Bruce Harman. He won a competition in May of 2009 and ended up getting to paint eight around and near the Capitola Mall. They all have a Monterey Bay theme.

Love the colors in each stroke!

I did spot a surprisingly plain green one on one of our main drags just this past week. I don't know how it got missed, but it's a blank canvas for someone!
