Murals of a special kind: Ashland, WI

We started wandering the country with an RV in 2000 and are still going as much as possible although we now stay in motels.  In those earlier days, it was fun to occasionally encounter a mural on some building.  It is still fun to see them, but now they have become quite common.

Murals usually portray the history of the community and perhaps some special events.  The murals in Ashland, Wisconsin are special because frequently they portray people who lived in this small community.  Some had an historical role in the town, but most are just people who contributed to everyday life.

Ray and Alie (Ralie) are a retired couple who love to travel. Even during our working years, we squeezed a trip in whenever we could, often when we had to stretch the budget to do so. We have been fortunate to vacation in all 50 states, all the provinces of Canada and one territory and a little more than 50 countries. We like to drive, but we particularly love to travel back roads to find unusual sights, people, and experiences.

  2. Amazing how underrated muralists are for the most part (Michelangelo and de Rivera obvious exceptions to the rule). Being a confirmed studio artist, and having done a large scale mural I have nothing but admiration, and a little awe for most if these people. Some great stuff here Ray!

    Beautiful murals and so lifelike that it is surreal. Loved them.
