A mural painted on a wall depicts a bird soaring over a river and landscape. A frog is visible in the lower left corner, while a flock of birds fly in the upper left corner. Two Canada geese, one swimming in the water, one walking along the shoreline, are also visible.

Weston Backyard Community Mural

Mural Routes Member(s): Pam Lostracco

Along a path in Weston’s Elm Park, you’ll find a few furry and feathery friends on a wasabi-coloured garage. The client’s intention for this mural was to create a connection—and a gift—to the community. Wrapping around to a second wall, the mural continues into their backyard. To merge the 2 sides into one scene, the mural was designed to include common animals often spotted in the area, into an upward, sweeping landscape. Colours, trees and animals naturally integrate into the immediate surroundings of the garden and park. Children and parents play on one side, while neighbours are entertained on the other side.
