        1. That sounds wonderful!
          Are any from Iceland? One of my fave artists, Shalak Attack, went to Reykjavík last summer to paint a giant mural. I saw pics, and it is marvelous!

    1. Yes, I agree about the bird. In our First Nations lore, it would be a Thunderbird.
      Many of the ancient civilizations in the western hemisphere have art styles and images that are eerily similar. {{hugs}} I found how to spell Athena in Greek letters! It will look awesome graffiti style! ❤

  1. Beautifully symbolic, Resa. I love the way, in some, the artists have captured nature (trees/flowers) with the night sky as the backdrop for the murals. Brilliant colours, too… 🙂

    1. Yeah! I heard about another of Chief Lady Bird’s murals. Hoping to get there soon. We have a 1 above 0 day on Sunday. Don’t know what I’m going to shoot, but I’m heading out! ❤

        1. It’s -14 right now. GOOD NEWS! Warming up to -4 in the heat of the day tomorrow.
          If I don’t get out for a decent walk soon, I’ll implode! Promise! Kidding! 😀 ❤

Speak your art mind!
