Nature's Tribute

Some time ago I posted pictures of this huge mural in Luray, as seen from across Hawksbill Creek. Today we walked along the Greenway and I saw some details that I did not capture from the other viewpoint. 

Click on the collage to see a large version.

"Nature's Tribute — Nine Eleven"
The nature mural was completed in 2004 by Janet Scott.  I see that Page Valley Arts Council has published an Art Trail listing, so I need to go back and see what I've missed.

Sharing with Mosaic Monday and Monday Murals


  1. ...not bad for thirteen years old.

  2. I am so amazed how someone can paint a mural such as this on a rough surface. So beautiful. I am glad you shared the information on it also.
    Thank you for your visit and comment also.

  3. Super detail shots Linda, I'm glad you added the links, was good to see the bigger picture and the actual barn depicted in the mural.

  4. I enlarged your images to get a close up look, how fascinating the mural is, such detail. A wonderful tribute.

  5. Nice features included in this art work

  6. A great tribute to what is right with our country -- pride in our beautiful nature -- and the strength of that ... a fitting memorial and tribute.

  7. Isn't it interesting how a different angle can reveal new meaning? Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
