Christmas murals at Grants Pass, OR

The Home For Christmas mural, above, is one of eighteen unique murals on display in Grants Pass, Oregon over Christmas. Panels 5 x 10 feet display colorful scenes by day. With fiber optic lighting they transform at night to shows of color, music, and light.

Crescent Beach - Surrey, BC

Our walk down Crescent Beach today took us past "Meg’s Place" – a beach house that is not shy about celebrating Christmas. Piped Christmas music originating from somewhere on the property floated across the path and a peek into the yard revealed a festive fairyland.

A Christmas mural in progress

I have no personal photos of Christmas murals – therefore no pictures to post. But there are some to be found on the web.

A mural artist named Cam has posted several Christmas mural works in progress.

View the almost finished first project here.

If you’re interested in how a garage-door-sized piece of canvas becomes a mural, check out his slide show, tracking the progress of the project above.
