Just because I’ve walked through an alley 1000 times, doesn’t mean I won’t find something new.

…and so, out doing errands, I take the alley…

… and find Scheheraholly.

Some fab reflections of Scheheraholly.

    1. IKR! Lol! I always wonder what people think when I crash their yard to take pics.
      Based on that I’ve only been chased away a couple of times, I think they are proud of their art.

            1. True.. the alleys can be scary. For some reason, I feel kind of at home. The rummies (& others) only come into the alleys to urinate. They stay on the main streets to beg. There’s no $$$$ in the alley.
              LOL! One day I was in an alley, and an artist was finishing a painting. I recognized the art, and asked him if he was so&so the artist. He was happy I recognized the art, said yes, and we struck up a conversation.
              At that point, a guy entered the alley and began the ceremony of taking a whiz….on the artist’s art.
              The artist confronted the guy, saying that at least he could wait until the art was finished.
              The rummy had decency, smiled and with a respectful nod, peed on someone else’s art.
              Of course I totally avoided the crack gal working out of the abandoned car. The city towed that away in about 3 months.
              She was the scariest street person, ever!
              Glad she’s gone, and more art has been painted!

                That’s hilarious. They pee and crap in the alleys around here which includes the backdoor of our office. We have several crazy, violent street people downtown. We are looking for a new building in a better part of Albuquerque. The city has basically abandoned downtown and it has gone down the drain really fast since COVID and the riots, which they call protests.

                1. UCH! A riot is a riot A protest is a protest.
                  I’m so sad about the historic part of Albuquerque being destroyed. I would have loved to have seen what is left of Route 66!
                  Covid has exposed society’s inadequacies, and much more.
                  We (the world) has turned a corner. There is no going back. We have entered the Twilight Zone!

    1. IKR! What a serendipitous find! It’s 1001 alley dreams all painted into 1 image. I just love Sherheraholly, too !
      In some way…. she is for you! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

            1. Okay! SO…. My new Art Gown is almost finished. I’ve got a big post here in a couple of days. Your dinosaur will be second post up when I return to GLAM from Art Gowns.

    1. Yes… and who knows what I will find tomorrow! Norm will drive me to mid-town, and take the art paper home. I’ll walk through the alleys home. It will take me about 3 hours. I’m sure to get at least 2 fab pieces! I need the walk, and love the art!

        1. OMG… I went half way through the city to find Art Paper. I draw on 11×14. The city is picked clean. The store I went to said they had lots. I bought the last 3 pads. WHEW! ⚑️πŸ’₯

    You always find the best street art Resa. I most enjoy that part of an eccentric and creative vibe that finds expression in every unlikely place. In full color too.

  3. Art finds you, Resa. You are open to seeing the extraordinary in everything you see and do. You have chosen a beautiful way to live. You continue to inspire us all. Hugs!

    1. In some ways, art does find me. Interesting, and I think I did chose a fab type of life. There hasn’t always been a lot of $$$, but there has been all kinds of art….. & music!
      Ohh… just remembered, I have some music from downstairs to post for you!
      LOL! It will happen.

  4. [I wonder why I never got a notification?!!!!!]
    This is amazing, Resa! I love every little detail of it! What a find!
    Scheheraholly is beautiful!!!!
    Many many hugs
    weekend is here!

    1. Hello Beautiful!
      I’m listening to Cello Concerto No.4 in A major, while working on my new post! Lalalalala aaalalalal
      LOL! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

      1. Oh… and now I’m super happy looking forward to that!

  5. Wow, she is beautiful and mysterious, Resa! I love the abstract design and the glorious colors, and I wonder what her story is. What an awesome treasure! πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ§‘πŸ’œπŸ’—
