Squirrel & Girl

This sweet squirrel was at the top of an alley branching off another alley.

What side of the fence is he/she on?

Anyway, it made the alley look promising.


The alley deteriorated into trash and throw ups on all the garage doors.

However I found a face I like. Looks like it’s been there a quite few years.

      1. Don’t thank me. Thank Mathdaniel Squirrel.

        As for Murray, I cleaned his cage an hour ago and he’s now in bed surrounded by his food. It’s quite the life, being a hamster.

    That’s a really squirrely mural. He has a great expression like he just got away with something. On the other hand, the woman looks pained to me. Nicely done mural. When alleys are full of trash, barf, poop and pee, they are difficult to navigate and sometimes quite overwhelming from the smells all mixing together.

    1. The squirrel is adorable. The woman is a mystery.
      Alley art is a fave of mine. It speaks at times. In the least it is a wonderful gallery.
      True, alleys can be … foul. This alley was messy, tagged to the nth but not stinky. x

    1. Hugs back!
      You know Teagan, I have been taking my shoes off in the outer hallway and spritzing them with 70% alcohol, or a diluted bleach mix since bed bugs began re-infesting the world. Then when Covid kicked in, I began also shedding my clothes in the outer hall, tossing them in the washer on my way to taking a full shower and hair wash.
      I feel like the entire world is poisoned, includes alleys!

    1. I saw a beautiful face in Chinatown when we drove though a couple of weeks ago.
      I’m going for a bone density tomorrow, and its right around the corner. I’m excited!!!

  2. Hi Resa, as I have mentioned before I live in a tower block surrounded by playing fields, trees and a piece of land left to go wild as a sort of mini nature reserve. Well as regular as clockwork I can look down off my balcony into the communal gardens of my building and see bright red and grey flashes of colour bouncing around the gardens – Squirrel tails! There are many more Grey variant Squirrels than Reds however since the Grey was introduced to the UK and took over the native Red population.
    Greys such as the one in this great mural are cute but I like Reds with their orangey brown fur and white tufts of fur on the tips of their ears. Another great find in the concrete jungle.

  3. So cute squirrel, he looks a bit mischievous, I think he’s up to something. He seems to be outside the fence so good for him maybe he can escape the rancid alley. The face is well done , a fine artist and you’re a fine photographer of wall art! Sending love and hugs Meece.

    1. I’m sure he’s up to something!
      Squirrels & Meece are in charge of the alley alert system for all the tiny critters.
      The woman’s face is a fine alley art bit. The years have aged it in an evocative manner.

      1. Difficult was this…still is. A question asked, the universe has no answer. This is all that arrived in my aged head;
        Derick the Squirrel got banged up
        In a prison down Canada way
        Through the electrified fence
        Poor Derick got tense
        Wishing he’d was in Bombay
        Regards, TOF

  4. Aw, I adore that squirrel!!!! Outside! He’s free, outside! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜
    Great find, dahling (and the face, but squirrel is king!!!)

    1. I wouldn’t be surprised if my squirrel and your crow know each other.
      It’s the way of all free creatures.!!!
      Don’t know if it’s a boy or girl squirrel…. so let’s say King Queenie!
      There’s a mouse 🐁, a rat πŸ€ and a 🐿chipmunk emoji, but there is no squirrel!
      πŸ˜πŸ€— xo πŸ˜πŸ€— xoπŸ˜πŸ€— xoπŸ˜πŸ€— xoπŸ˜πŸ€— xoπŸ˜πŸ€— xo

      1. King Queenie and Crow are going to be the ones leading the new emoji revolution!

              1. Anmar isn’t going anywhere, so don’t worry!!!! Life first!!! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

  5. I love that squirrel. A great find! I think he’s outside of the fence. And if not–he can climb it because he’s a squirrel!
    I love watching squirrels. I have a friend who often tags me with squirrel photos on FB because of our Thanksgiving cranberry sauce squirrel mold. πŸ˜€

    The woman seems to be feeling intense emotion, pain or something else?

    1. The squirrel is adorable.
      Lol! A squirrel mold. Cool!
      Good point about the squirrel’s climbing ability.
      I like watching them too. One day I saw one eating a slice of pizza. It was a perfect slice, and the squirrel was holding it just like a human. He/she began at the point and worked towards the crust. Adorable.
      The woman fascinated me. I had to shoot her even though it’s an old stained piece.

Speak your art mind!
