Welcome to Joshua Tree Mural
Welcome to Joshua Tree Mural is a community mural in Joshua Tree, CA. The 21′ x 9′, mural was painted in acrylic on stucco.
Sponsored by many local businesses in the Village of Joshua Tree, and painted by Echo Westover and Linda Shrader of Larger Than Life Murals. It’s on the East-facing wall of Natural Sisters Cafe on Hwy. 62., a gracious contribution from building owner, Linda Perry.
Designed by Echo Westover, the jack rabbit on the right, also painted by Echo Westover, is a Larger Than Life version of Marcia Geiger’s original small painting “Surprise Jack,” which was recreated in the mural with her permission. You can see her reaction to seeing it finished in the video below.
We had a lot of fun painting this mural, and because of the family-friendly atmosphere in Joshua Tree, Echo and I were assisted by my other 3 daughters: Piper Robison, Starlin and Blaze Shrader. And by my sister, Jody Person. We were also honored by the assistance of the famous Aaron Hansen on the lettering.
