Snyder's 1st Mural
This is the first mural that Snyder ever painted on a flat wall.
That comment might sound strange, but Snyder honed his mural painting skills on the walls of 'The Pit', which is an abandoned slanted embankment in Carlsbad. By the time Snyder got to painting this mural, it is clear that Snyder had a good sense of placement and how the piece works.
Notice the buff spots around Snyder's piece, but how his mural is still left riding. Snyder says that he will often put up a piece without permission, and then leave his business card behind. More often than not, like this wall here, the piece is left riding.
