Ka'anapali dreamin'

This colourful scene decorated the wall of one of the lanai buildings we passed on the Ka'anapali (Maui, Hawaii) walkway where we got a bit of exercise each morning before the sun got too warm.

These murals were only a portion of the public art on display at the Calgary Stampede this year. The Stampede Public Art site features many other pieces. Clicking on the images on that page will, in most cases, whisk you to pages of large photos and descriptions of the mural or sculpture featured.

I snapped this mural on our vacation in Maui this January. I believe it was in Paia.

Mural serendipity

I stumbled on this mural in a Saskatchewan town on our vacation last year. I'm not even sure which town it was. It may have been Outlook. If you're a mural chaser, keep your eyes open and camera at the ready during your summer travels!
