Mural with Deer and Turkeys

 The town of Montross is now known for murals. While Frank was conducting business there last week, I walked through town and took pictures of these large paintings, which I will share in a series of Monday posts, starting with this one. I could not get a straight-on shot because a tree would have blocked half the painting.

Here is a collage of wild animals in the mural.  Deer and wild turkeys are plentiful in Virginia and have learned to live near people. 


  1. Linda - I love the 3-D aspect of this mural. We have had a female turkey hanging around our yard for the last few days ... she is not shy at all! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday, and I look forward to seeing more murals in the weeks to come!

  2. Beautifully done Linda. A lot of wild animals in Australia seem to have learned to live in the cities. Thanks for participating in Monday Murals.

  3. Great mural...it would be a good idea for the owners to trim the tree a bit! I love the turkey's wings going beyond the frame!

  4. This is an attractive mural because of the subject of wildlife. You did a good job in photographing it and presenting details of the creatures.

  5. Wonderful mural.
    We have wild turkeys too. Always fun to see.
