Abstraction in Five

I saw this colorful strip, as I was being driven somewhere.


When I returned on foot, I found 5 abstracts by the tracks.


The sidewalk was thin, the traffic heavy and fast. The sun reflected off the paint to blind me.


I didn’t get hit by a car, and in spite of sun blindness, I managed to capture all 5 panels.


I couldn’t get any further back, and the art was somewhat elevated.


Just feeling the traffic whizzing by made me dizzy.



At first it was all just a smear of colours. Then I saw Jimi Hendrix playing his guitar in the purple haze of heaven.


Now, I see other things, but it’s too, late to shoot the close ups.


You can see, in the pic below and other pics, the sun reflected in the painting.



The sun is so fabulous, I think it adds to my shots.


Sun, sun, sun, here it comes”



I thought this face was a crab or some kind of sea creature, until I got home and looked at my pics.


I’m not sure what else I missed? If you see something, tell me!


This fabulous art experience was a mere 1 hour walk from my home, & 1 hour back.


Nothing gets me to walk further than the anticipation of finding street art.

I did see what appeared to be some kind of credit:

    1. Dear Rebecca,
      You are so right!
      I’ve been so blessed in this life. I get to create. I get to enjoy what others have created. I get to breathe.
      I adore you!

  1. I am laying on your couch Dr Resa, taking this psycho analysis test of yours and all I see is cats, CATS everywhere. Am I sane ? Another thing, I think your fee of one US dollar is excessive. Can I get dressed now ?
    Love and big hug. Ralph xoxox ❤

    1. Erm… Cats? You’ll probably be okay…….. eventually! Maybe, one day, in the future sometimes. I’ll waive the fee, this one time. Yes, you can get dressed, now. That will be $1,000.00 US for your clothes! xoxo <# ❤

      1. Oh wow ! That’s a rip off … umm … my clothes are already ripped off 😜
        Can you recommend a costume designer ? So much cheaper ! 😉
        Big hug. Ralph xoxox ❤

  2. Perfect weather and a great find. Glad you got the photos safely too! It’s a beautiful explosion of colour, how artists envision such creations is a mystery!

    1. It was the nicest day we’ve had since New Years! I almost had forgotten how to walk.
      Ste J! Thank you for the Kids Month plug on your blog! It is much appreciated.
      It’s going to be a little more educational as well.
      Example: I will be reblogging a post on Puffins. Inese took all the photos. I have 2 kids’ book reviews from your blog.
      There’s more! It’s only 1 week away!

      1. Well if you are doing a Puffin post, my reviews of Tom’s Midnight Garden and The Watchers were both published in the Puffin imprint just to tie in with what you are doing.

  3. Found myself studying it, Resa; quite mesmerizing! It’s times like these I’d love to know the artist’s thoughts.
    Stay safe; can’t have you blinded by the sunlight when cars go whizzing by! 🙂

Speak your art mind!
