Biscuit Paint Wall in Houston, Texas is a popular mural frequented by photographers.  During the week it is hard to be able to view the entire wall without vehicles parked in front of it.

I took some photos with the parked cars the first time my husband and I stopped there. The second time we tried visiting it on a Sunday and had more luck.  The store was closed which helped. There were quite a few people taking photos.

Some appeared to be cute candid shots. People were busy performing various poses for other pictures.  When looking online, it seems that some use the wall as a backdrop to showcase and then sell items of clothing and other assorted goods.

Before we left some photos were being taken of a family dog.  I am sure that those would have turned out looking cute and undoubtedly different from the norm with that background.

The store called Biscuit Home sells upscale bedding to go along with bedroom furniture.  A baby’s crib sheet made from 100% cotton and sewn in the U.S. usually sells for around $60 as an example.  The designs are bright and cute and designed right here in Houston.  They are intended to become heirlooms passed from one generation to the next.

Also sold are items such as candles, trays, books—really dear ones for youngsters!home accessories and more.

Sebastien “Mr. D” Boileau of Eyeful Design is the art firm responsible for painting this colorful mural.  “Mr. D” was born in France and established a business there.  In 1998 his enterprise of painting murals and other art projects was moved to Texas.

This multi-hued design was created by pouring various amounts of paint from the top of the building and letting it drip down to the bottom.  Starting with a black background and working from darker to lighter colors, this Biscuit Paint Wall is certainly an eye-catcher!

Over the side entrance door from the parking lot is the name of this mural that even has its hashtag.  #BiscuitPaintWall has undoubtedly been viewed via the Internet countless times!
