Port Carling visitors discover 'the wall'

The Portrait has presented a few murals from across Canada, but this one in Port Carling, Ontario is exceptional.  If you click on the picture, you can enlarge it a bit to catch the drama of what is really happening.  Failing that, please check the article written by John Goddard which appeared in the Toronto Star this summer.  Its quite a story!

  1. Exceptional indeed! I have long been intrigued by outdoor murals. I once got to paint one, in Alton, ON but we didn't get to finish - something about insurance liability (two of us up on ladders all day). It sits there still and I feel really bad it was never completed.
