Amidst a line of cars waiting for a chilly treat from the Meadowlark Dairy, Artist "Big Al" Meadows worked to preserve springtime in Pleasanton. It's been 14 years since he painted the original mural on the drive-through dairy wall, and this time he's adding history with each stroke of the paint brush.
With the last artwork, Meadows said he didn't have time to research and just painted a typical dairy. This time, he is including the historical dairy and making a replica of the view from the Pleasanton Ridge. Even owner Bruce Takens will be waving hello from a dairy truck.
Meadows said it will take him several more days to finish the painting, if anyone wanted to see the mural master at work before stopping by for a famed frosty.
