This garage door art made gasp out loud from its beauty.
Part way through making this post, I heard about the passing of Eddie Van Halen.
So, I dedicate this post to Eddie.
Guitar is my fave instrument. I dated drummers, bass players, keyboardists, horn players and singers. For me, there’s nothing like a hot guitar player.
Rest in Flowers! RIFF, Eddie!
Pics taken by Resa – September 28, 2020
You can feel his fingers on those strings and on the fret board! He was a true rock guitar artist.
Makes me feel even more honoured to have some of my one-eye art, on Art Guitars custom made & played by Timothy Price from Off Center Not Even

Beautiful tribute Resa
Thank you! Le sniff!
Yeah… thank you so very much!
So beautiful and a lovely tribute to Eddie.
Thank you! I adore musicians, especially guitarists.
You’ve chosen such a lovely tribute to Eddie Van Halen dear Resa. Such a tremendous loss! Thank you for this! xoxoxox
You know my love of many years is a musician. Guitar is his main instrument. This hits close to home.
Eddie was a rock guitar genius.
I did work with his ex-wife Valerie Bertinelli. She was a joy to dress, a class act all the way.
Time is a relentless song writer.
I’m a huge fan of Van Halen and adore Valerie Bertinelli. It’s so very sad. Gone too soon.
Never met Eddie ❤ , but Valerie is a class act. She has all my respect. https://vimeo.com/27923937 a bit of our work together.
That’s awesome. She’s so cute. She’s on food network now. Very sweet. Her sons been on there too.
Yeah, she’s has a sweet personality!
…the band is groovin’
I go draw now! xxooxxoo
Lol! Have fun , wish I was there. xoxoxo
I always wish you were here for music! xoxoxo (Was in the alleys today!)
Me too! I’m missing out! Anything good in the alleys. It’s getting cold there now right?
I found: a blue kool kats band, and a Muhammed Ali by a dumpster, a girl playing a guitar and a Korea mural. There were a few others… a good 3.5 hours, all in all!
Terrific finds. You have amazing stamina. Isn’t it getting chilly up there? You must start layering. I’ll be tagging along in my Boogapony boots. xoxoxo
Yes, getting very chilly! I was layered, and I cover my ears now. It was a 3.5 hour walk, maybe a bit more, so the body is quite warm.
Boogapony is always with me in the alleys!
Stay warm stay safe. Boogapony’s right there and those boots are made for walking . ❤️🌸
We gotta use that song in our next Boogapony post! xo ❤️🌸
For sure, it was just made for Boogapony and all the ladies out there marching! ❤️
Marching & walkin’ all over that guy… who says he’s got something for you… but has nothing! 🌹 How can there be no BOOTS emojis?
What?! 👢👢👢👢sigh of relief. There’s our boots! Gonna need those for that guy whose got nothing for us. Lol! xoxoxo
What section of emojis did you find a boot in? xoxoxxoxo
Good looking stompers!
On my cell phone’s emojis. They are pretty sharp stompers and we deserve them. 👢👢💞
They’re perfect. I’m going to comb my emojis…They’ve got to be there!!! 👢👢💞
(just copied yours)
I’ll be back to blog, but I’ve got 4 pies waiting for me to finish them!!! xoxoxo
4 pies 🥧? Yummy! Enjoy. I’ve been thinking about baking a pineapple upside down cake but it’s 90 degrees and I don’t want to turn on the oven. I got some sun earlier, gotta get your Vitamin D! Don’t forget. xoxoxo
Right, vitamin D… I’ve got a bottle of it, in liquid form, & i have a glass of calcium OJ every morning. That has Vit D in it as well.
It looks like we are entering the dark months now, Sigh. They start earlier and last longer every year.
90!!!!! It’s going down to 48 tonight and up to 54 tomorrow, so I don’t mind the oven on.
I’ve never mastered the upside down cakes.
Pies, yes… cakes, muffins, NO!
Okay the veggie pie is out of the oven, 2 peach and 1 cherry any minute now!
Love you… and I will take my D, and I adore you for telling me to take it!
Those pies sound so good. I’m actually quite the pie baker. It was a mother in law thing. She taught me well.
Plenty of Vitamin D esp in the dark months, OJ is super. Coats sweaters and scarves. 🥾🥾🧤🧤👨🎤🍷🧦🧦🥧🍊🌝🧣xoxoxo
Aye, aye, Captain! 🥾🥾🧤🧤👨🎤🍷🧦🧦🥧🍊🌝🧣xoxoxo
That’s the spirit matey!
xoxoxox I FOUND THE BOOTS!
Hiding back there in there tan little world. We need red 🥾 ! Or purple. Or sequined coated. xoxoxo
Or black boots ..like in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2fPkzJsMU8x
Oh! Yes! The black boots , love them! 👢👢😎❤️
Love the WHITE BOOTS! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xd7l6Rvp-Ax
Oh yeah! That’s what Nancy was wearing when those boots walked all over that guy that had nothing for her. Yay!!
How beautiful, Resa and a wonderful homage to Eddie, may he RIF.
…and your, well, Tim’s guitars are gorgeous!!!!!
It’s all about guitarists, guitars and rock music today. It’s home for me. Thanks to you and S. (Oannes) that home is expanded.
I can sit in the garden and have Cosmos cover my eyes. It’s a nice way to look at the world from time to time. I really like that mural. Great find. I really like both Van Halen songs. I remember when we I was a kid the older boys would talk about Spanish Fly and how they wanted to slip some to the best looking girls.
Lucky you… Cosmos over your eyes.
Wish I had more Cosmos, time to time. Flowers send messages.
LOL Spanish Fly… it is a massive myth, worthy of metal rock!
I haven’t heard of Spanish Fly in years. Different values these days I suppose.
You would slip Spanish fly to girls or women to make them horny. Those were the days when we boys were taught girls weren’t horny.
True.. it would go into a girl’s drink.
It seems a LOT more innocent than slipping a date rape drug into a girl’s drink.
Times have changed, indeed!
Guess girls don’t need to be horny, in those cases, just available.
At least with Spanish Fly a woman would be an active participant. At least that’s how I understood it as a kid. A comatose woman would be no fun at all after slipping her a date rape drug. But rapists have a different mindset.
Yes, the idea of an active participant was the lure! Changed and changing social norms have allowed for women to feel more sexually free, as time has gone by. I think women do participate more actively, now.
I think the 60’s and birth control were a liberating factor for women in 1st world countries.
Yet, there are so many date rape stories, I can’t help but wonder why? Look at Bill Cosby! He’s rich, successful, a star, a celebrity, but still needed to use drugs to seduce women.
It doesn’t make a lot of sense.
Yes. I don’t understand men like Bill Cosby. There is something in his psyche that is way out of whack. Whatever it is, it seems to be the case with men who use date rape drugs.
That art is stunning, and this is a beautiful tribute post!
Thank you so very much Merril.
I married a guitar player.. he arranges and produces now, but has more guitars than I can count, and still plays.
Eddie is not all that much older than my love, so this really hit home.
Resa, an awesome tribute to Van Halen. Love his songs. I’m playing the guitar again. And a secondary key character in my book is a guitarist and has a band. Rest in Flowers is perfect for Eddie. 💐🎼Christine
Thank you 💐🎼Christine!
My guy is a guitarist. He had 2 bands. Now he produces and arranges… and still plays guitar!
Glad to hear you are writing!
Stunning garage door, Resa, and the perfect tribute. 🙂
Thank you, Janet! That door is amazing in real life!
Drawing away on the next PBH adventure! (all of the Art Gowns have been planted in a wind farm)
The artwork is beautiful
It is stunning in real life! A+++
I’ll be by soon… after dinner or in the am!
Beautiful images and beautiful tribute. Rest in Flowers.
Thank you, Valentina!
Lovely and what I need to survive in the US now, flowers covering my eyes!
It looks so peaceful.
What a fantabulous mural… and perfect that you should dedicate it to Eddie Van Halen. Such a loss. Mick must be welcoming him with open arms. He adored VH.
Aww, that’s so neat! I mean, about them being together…in a way! I’ll bet it’s roaring Thunder up there!!!
With Tom Petty and Prince and David Bowie and and and… The party is happening!
Sounds fab! Special invite only!
And I don’t want my invitation just yet, thank you very much…
Me too! I’m with you!
We ain’t done yet!
A brilliant tribute, Resa! We have lost a icon.
Yes, we have!
That is such a warmhearted and beautiful tribute to Eddie van Halen. ❤
Thank you! He was a real Rock Star!
WOWOWOWOW, Resa!!! That art stole my breath away! It is gorgeous! And what a great tribute to Van Halen!
Thanks Amy! (as if I painted the art), but I did take good pics of it!
My hubs is a guitar player a bit younger than Eddie’s age, so it felt close to home.
On a happier note, I’d like to send you a pic of the fabrics I’m using for the gown. May I use the email attached to this comment?
If it is xxxx OH yes, please! I would absolutely love that, Resa!! Thank you! xoxoxo
YAY! It’s dark here now, (rain) so give me a day! I need sunlight to take a decent shot!
Got it! I believe tomorrow will be sunny. 🌟
Sent The pics, and YES it was a sunny day, mostly! 🌟
Great tribute. Gorgeous street art…just beautiful.
Thanks Gi! I really am smitten with guitar players!
Lovely dedication to to Eddie….. Bands I would dance too… As we age together… Beautiful tribute choice and yes fantastic art.. ❤
Sweet comment, Sue! Sweet Sue!
Resa the mural is a gorgeous find! I gasped too. This makes a lovely tribute to Eddie Van Halen. I’m sad to see another great rocker pass… I’m still weepy over David Bowie and Glen Frye passing so close together, and how long has that been now? I agree that there is something uniquely special about guitar. Kudos on your collaboration with Tim. Hugs on the wing.
Thank you for this lovely comment, Teagan!
It’s so crazy how fast life passes, like some of Eddie’s guitar riffs!
Thank you Resa for this beautiful tribute. Eddie Van Halen was unreal with his talent and will be very much missed.
He left us a lot to remember him by!
Gorgeous artwork and beautiful tribute to Eddie, Resa. 💗💗💗
Thank you, Lauren! 💗💗💗
Hope all is well on your planet!
Can’t complain, Resa. Sending hugs! xoxo
Beautiful tribute to Addie.i admire her beautiful painting.so attractive.dear Resa !! You are real artist and recognise about wonderful Art.❤
Thank you so much, Aruna! ❤
You are most welcome,dear Resa❤
I’ll second your motion. I took guitar for a while. Acoustic. Then once, someone handed me an electric guitar. I had a bomb in my hands…
I will stay safe!
You stay safe, too!
Will do. Our risk level is limited. We buy everything on-line. Just take short walks in the neighbourhood with our masks on… Cabin fever is the worst we can have. 🤣
Wonderful tribute to a genius. Your one-eye art stands out.
