Graffiti / art or vandalism?

I like this one.

I like this one.

A few months ago when I was working on my painting of the James River rapids I saw the guy working on this graffiti. It looks like it was inspired by the rapids. I talked to him and he said it’s oil pastel and not permanent. I thought that the rough surface of the wall would use up the oil pastels too fast, and they’re expensive. Usually graffiti on the Pipeline Trail gets painted over right away but I was there a few weeks ago and it was still there. I’m glad to see they weren’t in a big hurry to paint over it.
