Murals of the Day

It was a beautiful fall day today, and I took to the
road. I left early this morning, and drove north.
I stopped at Lake Claiborne, then Magnolia,
Camden, and finally El Dorado, all in Arkansas.
These wonderful murals were in Magnolia and
Camden. I always admire murals; I have no concept
of what it must take to paint one. The scale of the
whole thing would boggle me, let alone the logistics
of ladders and scaffolds, weather and wind, bugs
and onlookers. Our little town contacted an artist
one time, and he wanted $50,000 to do one...
maybe I need to look into it!!
