The whimsical painting is closely tied to Fayetteville and the Ozarks. A black bear swings from the curling brown branches of an enormous tree. The tree was painted to mimic the surrounding foliage, with bright pink flowers to match the cherry blossoms that bloom each spring in Fayetteville. A slender cursive script spells out the words “Enjoy Local.” Jones has painted over 100 murals in residences, businesses, and public spaces around the region, including the insect murals on utility boxes around the Fayetteville square.
