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.

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
I had the best time in this alley! (and thanks about the shots!)
Hey, it’s raining here today. Were you in town? xoxoxo
Ha! nope still down south but it’s storming here now! Not a precursor for the weekend I hope! xoxoxo
Sold as soon as I saw the sign for pizza 🙂 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!
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
Such beautiful paintings of roses and flowers. It’s wonderful to make plain old architecture beautiful.
Agree! If not for the art, that would be one scary alley to walk through. If there’s art in an alley, I have no fear.
That is a gorgeous colour complimentary extravaganza!
It’s a beauty in an alley!
It’s a beauty!
Wow; the colours in these, Resa, is quite amazing! The artists are just fabulous.. 🙂
I adore the artists! It’s always such a treat to meet one! Is it still Easter where you are? Anyway, Happy Easter! 😀 xoxoxo
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!!!
Yay!!! Dancing Easter away helps build an appetite for all the yummy food! Okay… I’m going for a long walk off the calories. Sigh!
Really nice one Resa, thanks for showing more of it, bring some light in a rainy long week-end here…
It’s rainy here, too, and grey…. everyday! So, yes, let’s bring in the light and pretty colours!
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.
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!
🙂 … After a blog break and before posting, I like to ease back into the scene with visits.
How striking. Thanks for sharing.
It’s gorgeous… I’m driven to share the art!
I can smell the perfume from here in Austria. Cheese & Tomato pizza ! Yes ? 😉 🍕🍕🍕🤔 xoxoxo ❤
I love pizza!!! Do the Austrians like pizza? For some reason I think pizza is a universal happy food. 😀 🍕🍕🍕🤔 xoxoxo ❤
Oh yes ! We love pizza; American base, 4 cheeses & tomato. Heaven ! xoxoxo ❤
We have Smug in Glasgow, but probably it is not the same artist. xxxx
Who knows? These artists get around the world. They are very in demand. We love having artists from other countries here, and do, often.
Yes, Toronto is Mecca for the mural artists.
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.
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.
I meant the “artist and art.” Yikes
Petals our so vibrant, and love the bird. 🙂
At least the truck didn’t obscure the bird, as I adore it, too! 😀
Love the flowers so much…and the bird is stunning and awesome. 🙂
Agree! 😀 😀
Bless you my friend. 🙂
It’s a gorgeous alley! 😀 😀
It’s a gorgeous alley!!! 😀
Now THAT’S where I want to get “sidewalk pizza” as the sign says 😉 Talk about incredible art! Terrific Part 2, sis xo
Hmm, I should have tried some pizza when I was there! I just so wrapped up in the art! 😀 xx
Yeah… but it’s all the same alley, so I can’t choose either! Hugs to you! You Europe pics look amazing! 🤗😘
Yes. 🤗 …. and as to the trip, We need to catch up!. I will send you a note during the weekend. Hugs 😘🖤
What a romantic piece! I am really melting away. 🙂 Michael
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!
Thank you very much Resa! You too. 🙂
Beautiful artwork and details. These artists neverr cease to amaze me. All of the garages and wall need to ripped up and placed in a graffitti museum.
Interesting thought, actually!
