A large new mural in Fenton Lane was a labour of love for Jackie Knauer and Judy Pohl of Magical Murals.

They certainly didn't do it for the money.

The large landscape painting took about a week to complete — time which the two women donated to the project.

“We’ve seen how hard (the City and DLBA) have been working to clean up the downtown core and we wanted to help make the City pretty,” said Pohl.

“We’ve seen everyone working so hard, and seen so much improvement over the last 10 years.”

The artists, who have worked together for the past eight years, were publicly thanked at Monday’s City council meeting for their contribution. It can be viewed in Fenton Lane which branches off the Fraser Highway one-way next to Choo Choo’s restaurant.

Pohl and Knauer have also completed murals at Al Anderson Memorial Swimming Pool and Penzer Bike Park. See more of their work at magicalmurals.ca.
