Murals in Alpine, Texas

Alpine has lots of murals, we noticed on our recent trip there.


This one was on the side of a lumber company. Thus, the We Put "Pine" in Alpine.




We met the artist who did this huge "Greetings from Alpine, Texas" mural. It took six months, he told us.



Does someone repaint the calendar each month?



Iconic Alpine.

  7. Beautiful images and to have met the artists must have been a very heartwarming dexperience. Thank you for sharing it all. We have an artist here, or did, who painted huge marine mammals on the sides of multi storied buildings. Can't remember his name at the moment. Murals end up being temporary in big cities, though.

  8. Those murals are fantastic! I'm sort of fascinated with Texas, having only vacationed there once (and loved it), and driven through small segments several times. Thanks for sharing these. And thanks for stopping by my blog. Cheers!

  9. Murals add so much delight in unexpected places. The last shot with the cowboy behind you is especially cool.
