I Want to Fly Away

I never know what I’ll find on a garage door.

I felt free, when I saw this.

I’m going to guess geese!

They flew around the side, in their colourful sky.

  1. That is an amazing sunset sky to be flying around in, wish I was there. But do you know why Geese fly in a “V” formation?….Cos the one at the front has the GPS unit 🀣

    You are correct. They are geese. Canadian Geese like we get down here. The mural is beautiful. “Fly Away” with Lenny.

        We had a few different breeds of geese when I was growing up white, brown and mottled. It’s only been the last 15 years or so that the Canadian Geese have been coming here in large numbers in the winter, and some have started hanging around all year. The geese we had growing up look different from their Canadian cousins.

        1. I hope the Canadian Geese haven’t displaced their cousins!
          I’ve had good experiences with the Canadian Geese. They are very friendly, although can snap with their beaks once in awhile. Doesn’t hurt.

    1. The neighbours? Ef thXXXXX Sorry!
      That’s just too crazy for me. People who don’t like art, or don’t like others who like art and show it publicly, or maybe they are plain mean, or …
      Paint your garage door. Maybe they will paint theirs in an effort to out do you!

  3. This artwork is the embodiment of freedom , these gorgeous birds in flight. I love this concept and how beautiful it is across this once simple garage door. Wonderful find dear Resa. xoxox

    1. Agree, it’s a wonderful find. I was on a main street and caught the colours down an alley with the corner of my eye. I always check out colours!!!

                  1. He had no choice . He plans to run for prez in 2024 ( or be on the Trump ticket if T’s not in jail) . He passed a law that students and teachers here in Fl must divulge their political status to enter college. One of many fascist laws he had put in place here.

                    1. OH NO!!!
                      What’s next? A firing squad?
                      He would be a horrible president. So would Cruz. So would many from the liars club.
                      I hope Liz Cheney runs against all of them.
                      There would be all of these a-holes splintering votes from the liars club. Liz could come up the middle, where there are some rational republicans.

                    2. Agree! She rocks.
                      I would say I am a Democrat, but she’s the one to take her party back!
                      Then at least they would be respectable. Cripes, they aren’t even presentable at this point.

                    3. Yes! The pukiest part is that they are cowards, because they are afraid of t.
                      Gag me with a spoon!
                      Hmm, maybe they were cowards all along, and t jus gave them an excuse.
                      (Working on the Rose post 🌹- Friday, or weekend for sure!)

                    4. Yes she does. I forget his name, but some other GOP guy said it’s a big lie, and they are crucifying him!
                      Not Adam Kinzinger… another person.
                      Well, that makes 3.

                    5. Yeah, the election supervisor of Ga. they are crucifying anyone whose not a Trumper because they are afraid of him. Their only hope is if he goes to jail for tax evasion. That’s how afraid they vare and everyone knows the only way to handle a bully is to stand up to him.

  4. The Canadian geese are taking flight – So creative to put that design on a garage door! Ours is white… But our house is blue so at least it’s not just an off-white… Haha imagine if I put a big orange cat design on the garage door ~ Wonder what the neighbors would say… πŸ˜‰

    1. Well, The neighbours might like it!
      It’s almost a competition out here.
      (My door is better than your door)
      It sounds a bit too, uptight for me to imagine anyone not liking/or opposing art on a garage door. That’s crazy.
      πŸ˜€

  5. What a stunning door and surround! I’d love to have something like this, although it would probably look a bit odd on our rental. However, we have a three-car garage, so we’d have lots of space for flying geese. Fantastic colors on this as well.

    1. It’s so great to walk around outside and find this art.
      I spotted this one a half a block away, because of its colours.
      A 3 car garage is a wonderful canvas!

  6. I’m with you [on flying away!!!!]!!!
    What a beautiful mural! I love how the birds fly in waves of air and sea …during sunset!
    Let’s fly away! πŸ˜‰

    1. I think humans have always envied the freedom we perceive birds have.
      It’s an interesting piece to me, as it has the abstract sky and sea, yet the geese are perfect in silhouette.
      Okay… just gluing feathers to my arms. I should be dry ready to fly in 2 days. Just remember; not too close to the sun!
      THERE are no glue or feather emojis. I leave you with all of the emojis that can fly!
      πŸ¦†πŸ¦…πŸ¦‰πŸ¦‡πŸ¦ŸπŸ²πŸ•ŠπŸ¦’πŸžπŸ₯ƒπŸ· xo

      1. Oh, I’ve got my gear on and ready to fly! Emoji people have serious image shortages!! 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣
        πŸ•ŠπŸ¦’πŸ¦œπŸ¦šπŸ¦πŸ¦ƒπŸ¦‰πŸ₯πŸ”πŸ¦…πŸ£πŸ€πŸ•ŠπŸ¦†πŸ§πŸΈπŸ“
        Clink! 🍷

        1. Agree! First, there should be an emoji of all dog breeds and mutts. Then all cat breeds and types. I’m surprised they haven’t figured all the dog and cat people out here!
          John Howell would like a Daiquiri emoji.
          At least they have a glass of wine! Clink! 🍷

  7. What a beautiful garage door, Resa! Thanks for sharing. It would make me feel happy every time I saw it. I love the colors and the sense of freedom.

    It’s Canada geese, not Canadian–though obviously where you live, they’re that, too. πŸ˜€
    We have lots of geese here, as you’ve seen in my photos.

    1. Do you have a garage?
      Ahhh grammar girl! You are correct.
      Sorry, no prize! Lol! Yes, lots of geese where you are. We Canadians get around. πŸ˜€

  8. This is the third time around for me, Resa! My immediate response was freedom. Freedom of movement within colours and changing terrain into an unknown horizon. The geese showed no fear, only a graceful elegance of motion. You never know what you will find on a garage door.

    1. LOL! Love those garage doors!
      I spotted this around a corner & down a lane.
      The colours caught the corner of my eye.
      Apparently, I can see around corners now. LOL
