Doumani, 51, of Venice, has invited a couple hundred friends-- and their dogs--to gather at a local park to celebrate the 65th birthday of her husband, Roy, for whom she published the book that features 50 color photos of Jasper, their 3-year-old Saluki.

Westward, there's the ocean with crashing waves, rocky cliffs and an orange-purple-red sunset. Eastward, there's the parched, rust-colored desert and distant hazy mountains. Both come together on a bank building in North Hollywood. The panoramic murals, stretching up two sides of the nine-story Great American Bank building at Victory Boulevard and Bellingham Avenue, were finished earlier this month after four months of work.
