Dreaming Cowgirl mural by Jane Williams in Flagstaff, Arizona

This intriguing mural is located on the wall of the Western Post liquor store at the corner of S. San Francisco Street and E. Phoenix Avenue in historic downtown Flagstaff. It is across the street from the Grand Canyon International Hostel, formerly known as the Downtowner Motel. The old "Downtowner" sign makes an easy reference point for finding this mural. We believe the artist is Jane Williams, a local muralist and performing musical artist who is also known as "Universalia Jane." According to her Web site, "…Universalia Jane is a supernatural thinker and a secret warrior priestess…" Completed in 2003, the mural captures the imagination, transporting the viewer into the dreams of a slumbering cowgirl.

Update 1/21/07: Craig Brown of Bellevule, Washington wrote to confirm that Jayne Williams is the artist who painted this mural. Visit her Web site here.
