- a mural by Lance Russwurm for the Girl Guides of
Duke Street Parking Garage, Ontario Street on the Wall facing King St.
The Mural incorporates various levels of the Girl Guide organization,
including, Sparks, Brownies, Guides, and Rangers. The characters in the
mural are engaged in two major activities in the mural, a cozy campfire
and a canoe trip in the great outdoors. The Mural emerged from the slogan
of the Girl Guides: "Start a friendship."

Baden, Ontario - since
Riverwalk Mural" 2002 -
This mural was
an attempt to make a warehouse type building look more like the retail
shops that were inside. I went for a "Paris street" theme.
I had a lot of
fun with trompe l'oeil details, especially my copies of famous posters
from the original Moulin Rouge.
New Hamburg Firehall
(20' X 80')
by Lance Russwurm
Exterior Acrylic Enamel
This was my
first mural. I probably never would have tried one, but the township had a
competition to do a design for this bare wall. I entered and won. I
learned many of the tricks and techniques I use to this day while doing
this project. Note how I incorporated the actual windows of the building
into the scene. I drew all the objects dead-on so that perspective would
not cause problems with viewing from any angle. Everything is life-size so
passers-by can feel that they are a part of the picture. It has proven to
be a popular photo backdrop with tourists for that reason.
