The murals of Ashland WI

Okay, I have internet tonight and I'm not sure when this may happen again, so I'm going to load some of the photos I've taken.

We went into Ashland WI earlier this week and they are known for their murals.

These are done by a crew of two women and I was fortunate enough to meet Kelly Meredith, one of the two. 

She graciously allowed me to take her photo. 

Well, I would have anyway...but it was nice to have her say yes.

These murals cover an entire city block and there were many different themes. I'm only going to present the ones that were my favorite. 

Well, it's my blog and that's just the way it is. If you want to see more you'll just have to drive north and see them for yourself. 

The scenes are colorful and interesting and detailed throughout. 

Note the lady standing at the far left of this photo - a close up of her face is at the end of this presentation.  This shows the full city block.

This is a little more of a close up of the street scene.

This is a little closer yet.
Remember the lady on the far left in the first photo? 

Here she is up close and personal.

This was truly impressive and was a fun day.

Long Live the Queen!

  1. Oh wow, I love the paintings! I've never seen anything like this in person so your photos are very special. I never thought of putting together a bucket list, but maybe I should. You are having so much fun. So glad to see you back on the blog. Have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
