By GARY CARL/for The Herald  — Paula Lichfield has been painting murals since 1995.  Each mural is custom designed and hand painted.  Her current project, which she says will be completed in about two weeks, is inspired by the natural beauty in and around Oakridge and the outdoor activities that are prevalent here.  From Mountain Biking to Skiing with Diamond Peak in the background, the murals depict much that represents Oakridge.

Murals East and West

Facing west is the mural of a skier catching some good powder. The east-facing mural depicts a mountain biker barreling down one of our famous single-track trails.

Depending on the heat of the day, Paula switches back and forth between murals on each side of the building. Herald photo

Paula and her daughter/assistant Claire were just getting ready to take a midday break and go swimming. They’ve been given several locales where to take a plunge into one of our rivers and lakes.

Aside from her murals, Paula does original paintings, portraits, reproductions, and illustrations. You can see her extensive portfolio at  

These murals will be a wonderful complement to the collection of murals that currently adorn our town.
