I respect insects. However, if one gets caught in my hair, I freak out.
I’m not happy to see them in my home, either.

I believe these 2 artists are sisters.

Great Wall art Resa, I wonder what made this artist go with bugs. Love the beautiful colors and the way the wings actually have the shine of silica. I also freak if a bug gets in my hair or on me anywhere. Not ants but the big ones. If you get bats in your hair you’ll go crazy that’s why I avoid caves. 😛❤️♥️🦋
What a great reply, Holly. 🙂
I was running late for an important appt. mid downtown. There was no parking, everything was full. I was driving in concentric circles around my destination, & at this point a 10 min. walk away from it. There was a skinny sky scraper with underground parking, no lot full sign outside. Yay! OMG! There were spots for about 8 cars on each level. Ceiling height was about 6 feet.
Winding down and down was like a carnival ride. It was black with dots of light. My heart was racing. About 10 levels down, there it was, a spot. I had broken serious sweat by now, and my hands were slipping on the steering wheel. Somehow I got into the smallest spot ….ever…. and was outta the car in a sec.
A BAT attacked my head!! I panicked pathetically, but somehow got back in the car. With tears in my eyes and a thunder of racing horses in my heart, I twirled the car back to daylight.
I can’t remember anything after that.
So… No underground parking ever since, and now add caves to that!
Thanks for the tip, Holly!!!👍❤️🔆 I need to calm my nerves! 🍷🎵🍷
Pass that wine , I’m freaking out!!! Bats in your hair will make you crazy , it’s a known fact ( or old wives tale) promise me you’ll always wear a hat. 🍷🍷🥃🦇🦇🧛♀️♥️
A Hat? Okay. I’m going with a sick b’ball hat w/ an OVO owl on it. Scratch that. I’ll paint my own bat on a generic hat. That will be bad asp! Thinking about it, the bat is an under used symbol. Okay…Batman…pfft. We need a brand logo (for all the product we aren’t marketing … yet) I’m nominating a bat or an asp? Feedback? 🍷🍷🦇🦇 Where the hel* is that asp emoji? ❤ ❤
Let’s go Marine on their asp and use the “Don’t Tread On Me” symbol, a big ole Rattler. If we’re going deep in bowels of that parking lot bring a flask. 🦇🙌🥃🧛♀️🧡
Is that the same as going Commando? Anyway, I’ll bring a flask and a couple of capes! 🦇🙌🥃🧛♀️🧡
No! No commando. Naked and bats don’t go together. 😝❤️
Right! Bats are scary enough, let alone if they were naked! 😜💜💛
Bug hugs xoxoxo 🙄🙀💝
Bug Hugs back at ya!!! 🐝🐞🐜🕷🦋 xoxoxo
The colours are spectacular. This must be a new piece, there is no sign of time wearing at all. And the only kinds of bugs I would accept in my hair would be fake and attached to some clip 😉
It is pretty new. It was done late 2017. Also,the wall is in an indent and some what protected.
I would accept a clip-on butterfly. A clip-on cockroach is way outta my league! 😀 ❤
Ahhh… It does feel new!
No? No cockroaches? 😉 Can’t say I blame you, to be honest.
Spectacular! My most favorite quote about insects, “If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.”
It is a marvelous saying!! It is also very true, I think. This is why I respect insects, we are nothing without them! TY, Rebecca!
Beautiful. The colors are so vibrant and she’s gorgeous. Great artwork.
I adore the work by these 2 artists! They always seem to use vibrant colors, and the faces are always amazing. Shalak does FAB cats!!!
Love it! I have a thing for bugs, but yeah, in my hair and I’d freak a bit too!
😀 Nice to see you Ann!! You know I’m almost at 1100 posts of street art!
Beautiful streetart, Resa ❤️
Yeah! I still adore it! 💜🌹
They freak me out too, but I try not to panic if I see them in my home. I like to use a “catch and release” program.
Catch and release is good, works for me. However, if i ever saw a cockroach, it would be kill and flush. xo 😀
Cool art and a polarising subject is bugs. Good to see them given some wall space. I try and let my curiosity and admiration of bugs override my instinct to freak out. Moving to hotter climes some years back exposed me to a whole new universe of bugs which I’m learning to live alongside peacefully, apart from Tiger Mosquitoes which I kill on sight – not proud but those creatures are more vicious and sneakier than a pit of snakes.
OMG, Tiger Mosquitoes! Run away, now!!! What the???? You have a pit snake? Well, does it eat Tiger Mosquitoes? Perhaps there is a new age toy in here? The Tiger M P-Snake Doll. You pull the cord, and it raps. Wow!
Ha, fantastic! Now I need that toy!! (or at least an advert for it) 🙂
😀 😀 😀
This one is a perfect blend of realism and surrealism… I love her eyes… 👀… absolutely mesmerizing…. 💛🖤💛 much love and best wishes 😘
True, it is really fab art. Shalak & Fiya do the best faces. Sending love back at ya! xoxo 💙🖤💜
Beauty all around with this post! My parents have an influx of lizards, which technically aren’t bugs, but now I’m thinking about them 😉
I adore lizards! Tell your parents the lizards are little pets, and will bring them good luck.
Interesting that there is a sudden influx, though. Nonetheless, the lizards will eat the bugs. Perhaps there were many insects that your parents couldn’t see. Lizards are nature’s little bug catchers. 😀 Love to you & your parents! 😀 ❤
Yes, lizards are nature’s little bug catchers ~ I like how you wrote that, Resa! Oh there’s a surge in lizards in their area as a wildlife place let their lizards loose when they were closing and it’s not too far from my parents’ home. Crazy, hey?!
Yes, crazy!!! Wow, yet, kind of amazing. Is Vancouver Island a normal home to lizards? Well, I hope enough survive to be beneficial as little bug catchers. This is an interesting scenario that I will keep up on. ❤
Normally we might get see one or two lizards but lately we see them almost daily in that area (between me and my parents as I’m not there every day). I know, right?! I hope you’re doing well ♥
Doing well, and hope you are, too! ❤ (lizards are lovely!)
The size of that would freak me out, I jump when seeing cockroaches, they have a subtle sneaky way of creeping up. The lady’s poker face if she is scared is impressive.
Like I say, Kill & Flush when it’s a cockroach. Yes…. c’roaches sidle, they are very, very creepy. I brought one home in a grocery bag years ago. I saw it escape the bag: grabbed the vacuum, which was handy, as I never really finish vacuuming, saw it in a crevice and sucked the FU&^%$ up, then put the vacuum in a large plastic garbage bag, taped up the bag with heavy duty packing tape, then put it outside where it was 20 below zero. 😀 A job well done!
The colors are gorgeous, but their attention to detail absolutely perfect
They are fabulous artists! You must be back. Going over to see!
Amazing! Your art looks so great!!!
Thank you!!! The art is wonderful, my pics of it are not bad! 😀
I loved all your pictures, thank you for sharing the happiness !!!
Bugs in the hair is definitely not okay! LOL! These are simply gorgeous! I love the bright colors!
The latest hair accessories? So cool.
LOL!!! It is very cool!
Out walking, one evening, a spider became entangled in my hair as I walked through its web. It was the strangest feeling! I could sense his urgency to release him/herself. Afterwards I freaked a little, with shudders running through my body… 🙂 This art certainly reminded of that. However, Resa, in their place (outside) I adore them.
Yes, as long as they stay outside, and don’t get in my hair, I’m good to go with the bug world!
You make a god point in that they don’t want to be in our hair any more than we do. 😀 xoxoxo
My favorite type of art. So colorful and filled with hope and beauty. 🙂
BRUXAS (Fiya & Shalak) two-thumbs way up! 🙂
Charlie, you are filled with hope and beauty. You know the old saying? It takes one to know one. 😀
🙂 Resa, you are awesome! I’m so happy and glad we are good friends. 🙂
I love insects and this is a beautiful mural.
Agree! It really is a beautiful mural. We planted a milkweed in the backyard 3 years ago. We finally saw a Monarch Butterfly on it!
Really? That’s great. I believe they start their journey from Canada, so they are at home!
We live right on a migratory path by Lake Ontario. When we moved here 17 years ago, I would see CLOUDS of Monarchs in the early summer, and then in late summer/early fall.
There are no more clouds of Monarchs in the air. There have been no Monarch clouds for almost 10 years. This is what lead us to plant the milkweed. We named it Milky. Milky, has gotten bigger and there are now baby Milkies. We are hoping to make a little home here for the Monarchs.
I saw the “Flight of the Butterflies” movie when it came out about six years ago:
and I watched it on a ‘Cinemax dome” theater, which is 3-dimensional. (Imax was how it was called, and it was from Canada, and the film was from Canada too.)
Cool, I’ll check it out!
