It’s a whole new appreciation for snails!
I would NEVER eat one.
Although they seem to make cute pets.
They are possibly good for your skin, but I haven’t googled that.

Eye had an epic failure trying to make a Snail Lady of my own.
Still, Eye got to try 3 new colours in a new brand of water colour pencils. What was Eye thinking? A Snail Lady with blue eyes?

Korean beauty products are big on snail slime, no lie 😊
Very interesting! 😊
Yeah. I am a snail. You are a lady.
Snail + lady = Snail Lady.
Between us, we have it all!
Snail Lady sounds like a book for kids. I may have my next novel idea here…
All of your ideas are novel!
Well, the Professional Moron Festival was a rip-off from Woodstock. Sort of. It went terribly, by the way, the stage burnt to the ground and there was a riot when the houmous ran out. Darn.
I heard about the hummus incident.
I also heard that the stage was insured for $150,000.00 US. ???
Houmous. Hummus? So much confusion with this dip!
… I thought it was a bread spread?
A houmous bed? Id buy that for a dollar! Also on sale – pitta bed! LOL! Oh, man. I should start a blog that only deals with despair and woe… I’m sick of my puns!
NOOOOO!!!! Despair and woe are taken by many others!!! xx – 2 kisses for you, one for each side of your face!
I’d have three sides to my face after a nice sleeping on a houmous bed. Can’t see that being very comfy, eh?
Ahh, yes, actually.
Perfect, the way you gave us this snail lady little by little. What a creative piece of art. Made me grimace and grin at the same time.
Keep on working on your own blue-eyed snail lady. Who knows? Maybe you’ll start a trend!
IKR! Grimace and grin!
Staring a trend would be fun! I like drawing 1-eye faces. 😀
Very interesting mural. Perspective and all is beautifully strange. Eye love your one eyed snail lady. She’s wonderfully fluid with her squiggly hair and captivating gaze in her beautiful blue eye.
I have fun drawing the one eyes. I feel it doesn’t matter what happens, because it’s already wrong. If that makes any sense.
The Snail Lady is an odd one. I never know what I’ll find on a wall.
Okay, that’s really different. It’s so…snailllllleeee. I love it and I think you snail lady turned out great. 🙂
It’s an odd one, but that’s a neat thing about street art. One never knows what one will find. 😀
I love the snail lady…look at her all swimming around and such a great thigh too! Your snail lady is fabulous. This artist has a really wild imagination, I love that.
I love the imagination, too! This was an exciting find.
The thigh…. IKR! It demanded its own shot.
The 1-eyes are fun to draw. They tend to be the last thing I draw, as the music winds down. I can always tell when the musicians are petering out, so I peter with them. 😀 x
I love the I! It seems appropriate to appear as the music peters out. 😊x
It was really different music last night. There were 2 conga drum players in the mix.
Yes, they played Black Magic Woman. LOL
You are kidding! Oh, that’s too cool! xx
Yeah.. it led to a few extra glasses of wine, as I danced on my sketch pad. Lol! xx
A fun night! lol xx!
OMG!!!Loving Pick Up The Pieces!!! (on your blog) She is the most amazing SAX player, ever!!!
She is! I love Duffer!
So, she’s Duffer?
Yep, she’s a Candy Duffer. She’s got some lungs right?
She’s got more than lungs. She’s got IT!
Yes! I agree. She’s super.
I’ll play the vid for N tomorrow. He ran off to watch boxing with his buds.
LOL! He has defaulted to being a veggie, but still watches boxing.
Still, I hope you are okay even though the hurricane is skirting by you. One never knows, wtf!
Enjoy your night, n’s a veggie? As in vegan? Cool! I know, until that storm makes a turn I’m still very concerned. My friend on Merritt Island has decided to stay even though that’s a barrier island with mandatory evacuation. I’m going up to drag her out!
OMG! Drag her out!
Yeah I’ve been a veggie since I was 17. He came around slowly, on his own.
Thought about you a lot last night. New idea fro PBH. Working on the gown right now. Okay coffee water boiling. Back to Tango Art Gown!
I’m very excited! I feel like tangoing Im an amazing Resa Tango gown. Vegan is good . Torturing animals is bad!
hahaha! Welcome to my 3rd eye. I see words wrong a lot, the first time I read them. It’s like I’m just making everything up. xx
Duffer, Dulfer, she doesn’t have to know. xx
Yes, I’m all about the pet and not the meal. ❤️snail lady
Why would anyone eat a snail?
Power to the snails! ❤
Here’s to them!
WOW, she is interesting!
Wow, There so much creative, talented free art in Toronto.
It seems Toronto has become a canvas! I love it.
Strange and nice, maybe more unusual than strange, both I think..:D
It is for sure strange, and beautiful in a weird way.
Absolutely unusual. 😀
Is that snail juice dripping down Lady Snail’s mouth?
This one is very different. The lady has horns, green juice on her lips.
I’m thinking it’s snail juice, but not because she ate one. I think she loves them, and gives them pets and kisses. OR, maybe she’s a hybrid type of creature.
I have another piece of street art, and the girl has horns. I wonder if it’s the same artist?
Maybe I’ll post that next…. maybe not. I’ve got a massive backlog, and I keep finding more art.
LOL! Could be worse.
HEY, are you near that hurricane headed to Florida?
Wow – this one is wild and strange and creative and I have to agree with Holly… that is some fabulous thigh… I am jealous.
Strange is fun… in street art! Yes, the thigh. I have to admit that I did not, repeat; did not model the thigh… or any part of the Snail Lady.
Strange is definitely fun in street art.
Ah well… it’s still a great thigh 😉
What an imagination! The lady’s eyes are catlike.
Great imagination! Ah… catlike… wish I would find more cat art!
I did eat snails once, about 35 years ago. 😉 They didn’t taste so bad at all, maybe because they were served with a lot of herb butter.
Lol! Butter has that effect! 😀
Hi Resa, I suffer a skin condition and during my research I never saw anything about snails being good for your skin, however there was some information about “Doctor Fish” which are the sort used in beauty parlours to perform skin exfoliation on people’s feet!
Lol! I saw that in a tv spot. There is no way fish are nibbling on my feet! Eeeeeee!
Snail Lady and her slimy, swirly-shelled buddies is one of the coolest art pieces I’ve seen in ages! I really adore her. Here in France a few people do eat snails and I’ll never get used to seeing them sold in certain supermarkets, usually at Christmas. I couldn’t eat one I’m certain. I like their shells patterns, the way they’re like little mobile homes and can supposedly return back to your garden if you move them away – don’t know if that’s an urban myth?
Don’t think me too gross folks, but in my old garden I let the snails crawl on my hands and it was one of the most pleasant sensations (hope it was for the snails too as they seemed not to mind one bit).
As for Snail Lady – I think we need more snail art and stories and poems to celebrate snails. Salut l’escargots!
Maybe I’ll hold one next time.
I like all creatures. I think man has done them a lot of wrong.
Don’t see snails in the markets here, at least I haven’t.
I don’t have any more snail art, but I do have a female face with horns. Wondering if it’s the same artist?
Okay, it’s a grey Sunday, and I’m working on my next Art Gown. Exciting!
It’s unique art, I’ll give it that! I think the slime on the snails might keep me away though 😉 Lovin’ the new pencils you got!
Slime is great for Hallowe’en!
I’m becoming a pencil addict. I need to check the other art stores for different brands. xo
Great post again. Of course, as a Frenchman, I love “escargots”. 😉
I could never eat one either Resa..
Though if you want one to study lol, we have plenty in our allotment and garden… I am willing to share LOL.. 🙂
Much love my friend ❤
This sassy lady seems to use the snails as accessories. Cool!
It’s just plain different. I really like it, and snails might actually make cool accessories!
