St. Claire Gardens – Pt.2

Picking it up on this gorgeous peony

Then come the roses with writing.

A bad old truck was blocking this piece, big time. There were no reflections due the colour of the truck and a hardy coat of dirt. However, the bird is the best part.

This is how the alley finished.

  1. I had to get off my cell and go straight to the big screen to get a real good view of this stunning art. You are right, the bird is amazing. I love the flowers, the gorgeous colors and petals perfectly curled around one another! Another gem Resa! Great shots! xx

  2. Sold as soon as I saw the sign for pizza πŸ™‚ But, wow, the art here is just breathtaking. Those two pink roses by the stairs, the bird, the leaves, the colours, the peach rose and awesome graphics by the ‘Remington’ sign.. just wow!

    1. I like the Pizza sign, too! As deliveries come through the back, they do have to put signage on the shops. It’s one of fates of street art. It is a gorgeous alley, and I like the Remington piece, too! xx

      1. It’s now Easter Monday, Resa; and a public holiday.
        After dancing away the hours Saturday night and yesterday at our regular Sunday social a public holiday is just what the doctor ordered… and lots of yummy food!!!

  3. Love the style of the roses! The opposing sides of the first mural are quite the contrast. The left is awesome, but the right too busy for me. A great collection of murals … the Remington Glass mural is stunning! … Hi Resa.

    1. Hi Frank,
      I’m with you on the Remington Glass mural. The colours and composition are wonderful. I checked your blog, and see you are still on your break. Hope it’s a fab one, and thank you for popping into visit!

    1. I love pizza!!! Do the Austrians like pizza? For some reason I think pizza is a universal happy food. πŸ˜€ πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ€” xoxoxo ❀

  4. I would love to have a chance to have a conversation with a mural artist. How do they use space and texture in their murals? Do they see the art before it is painted or does the mural have a way of influencing the creative outflow. I have a feeling that there is a connection between the artist and the artist – that art is more than seeing – it is about feeling and experiencing a specific moment in time. I am fascinated by the creative process.

    1. Hopefully my mural will come through. I’ll ask as many questions as I can of the artist. Once it’s on the go, I’ll let you know. You can send questions, if he’s friendly he’ll answer. He seems friendly, and he is an amazing artist.

    1. I know what you mean. It was a joy to spend a couple of hours in the alley, and then to present it! Thank you, Michael, and have a fab weekend!

Speak your art mind!
