Sea Turtle On May 20, 2023 By ResaIn Alley Gallery, Murals Found this on the side of a big ol’ house in an alley. The alley was narrow, so I shot mostly on an angle. Love the colours. Made the alley come alive! Pics taken by Resa – May 8, 2023 Toronto, Canada The Artists: Rate this:Share this:TwitterLike this:Like Loading... Related

Hi Resa, what a wonderful art find. I also love the colours. You do have some amazing artwork where you live. I am green with envy.
Agree, it’s a wonderful find.
I’m green, too, Robbie.
You have breathtaking real animals where you live.
I have wall painted animals.
We are both most fortunate!
Have a great Sunday!
Yes, you are right. Both are wonderful.
Oh wow, that is just exceptional. So vivid! A spectacular sea-worthy find, dear Resa, and great pics as always 😊
Thanks for the share! 😎
You are welcome, Ford! I saw the colours about a block away. I caught them with the side of my eye. It was an unexpected joy! 🤩🤗
You did good, Resa, sharp eye! (as always) 🤩😍
so happy and beautiful
Yes! I felt happy and beautiful when I found it. Art imparts!
I see. A beautiful sea turtle, koi and flowers.
Tim…so that fish is a Koi?
I really like the flowers. I know one can’t compare, but your flower shots are spectacular, in a league of their own. xx
It’s very Koi-like. I love Koi. I have years of flower photo experience.
That’s lovely 👍
Great find, Resa, and the colors ARE spectacular!
Agree!I love this one. It’s a fab start to the summer season of street art!
Where is the LOVE button? This is absolutely gorgeous and the colours really pop! Excellent find, Sorceress!
Yeah, no Love button dear Thunder, and I love this, too!
Amazing what is in the alleys around here.
So many posts to make. So little time.
Think I’ll go sew! Lol… light (a tiny one) at the end of the tunnel known as Charlotte’s gown.
I’ve been making a few discoveries of my own in this new ‘hood I am working in. Shall be sharing in the near future!
Wonderful! Enjoy (all of it)! xoxoxo
In the street
Can’t be beat.
You know it!
Oh.. she’s so gorgeous and the fish and the flowers!!!! What a wonderful composition!
A great find dahlin and beautifully captured!!!! LOVE IT!
…from Hera too! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Love the turtle! Not more than Hera, of course!
It’s a great find, and I look ahead to a fab summer art season!
…well, of course!!!!!! 😂
This is so beautiful! Such a dreamy scene. I love it. I joined the Save the Sea Turtle 🐢 Preservation Society a few months ago. See some babies on IG. xoxoxo
Now the Sea Turtles need saving? Is there any species man has not brought to the edge of disaster?
I’m happy you joined!
I read “Lion Scream” by Robbie Cheadle. Pretty much all of the African animals in the book are in danger.
I’ll be reviewing it in my next post here.
I’d like to see the pics on IG, but I’m locked out, at least for now.
Meece are some of the only ones left in the okay zone! xo🐭🐭xo
Just don’t let a singing one get into your ear! 😂
Yeah, Leatherbacks come ashore to lay their eggs and people are messing with the nest. they have to hatch and make it back to sea or die. So, we are helping them get back to the water and keeping people away from the nest. Hahaha! Those meece will get in your ear…Meece Power xo🐭🐭xo
Run baby turtles, run!
Yes… Meece in your ears.
Makes me think of that song, “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes”
🎼 “Meece Get In Your Ears” 🎼
Power to Meece ! Power to the Meece right on ✌️ Ah Gad! We’ll be singing that all night. 🐭🐭
I know! Gonna go sew and listen to other songs. Hopefully nothing sticks, except maybe a needle. Lol! xo🐭🐭xo
Best of luck with the sewing I hope it goes fast and perfect xoxoxo
Just pinned up 250″ of circular hem, 1/2 the hem. Now to press, then to sew. The other 250″ I want to line and embroider. Long story. Will be in the post!
That is going to be such a gorgeous gown. So much hand work! And WORK!! I can’t wait to see it Meece. ❤️
Nice 2 for 1 catch!🐢🎏🌸
Agree! Perfect emoji line-up! 🐢🎏🌸
Nice way to liven up an alleyway!
Yes! Agree 100%!
Very cool! I really like it. As you say, the colors are great.
It’s always a rush to find a mural, or even just a small piece that excites.
So, Holly, Dale and I did a Weekend Concert Post & Fashion show on Art Gowns (with Frank’s OK!) I’m still catching up Likes and Comments. Lol!
Anyway, the opening song/video is a circa 2010 live performance of “Magic Carpet Ride” by Steppenwolf. (John Kay is amazing 40+ years after the fact)
There is a Fabulous old school keyboard intro. It reminds me of you. I could see you playing that intro. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtkP5gTX6Hc
Cool video. And, yeah, great organ work!
I’ll try to find the Weekend Concert
For convenience, but no obligation! https://artgowns.com/2023/05/13/whats-your-fave-biker-song/
Thanks! I did find it 🙂 I may pass on this one, but will try to listen to more of the music. I think all of my favorite “biker tunes” had been taken anyway.
Wow- that is beautiful! Talented artist 🖼️
Yes, agree. I’ve been a fan of Christine Mazulla for several years. She is amazing!
Beautiful artwork, Resa. You did an exceptional job capturing it for us to enjoy.
😁X 😁X 😁X 😁X
Thank you dear John!
It’s a wonderful mural.

I’m going to sew for an hour or 2, then I’ll be by…

Such a beautiful find! I love the colors, too. 🐢💙
Agree! Sure brightens up the alley. I love the subject matter. 🐢💙
It does, and I do, too!
I agree with you about the colors. The image is stunning.
Agree! I adore wildlife murals, as I hope it helps promote our need to keep them in our lives & on our planet.
That would be good!
Yes, I can see that. Wildlife needs to break free from their destruction by humans!
Gorgeous. Colors are beautiful, and the flowers and turtle…off the charts.
I adore this mural!
A new street art season is upon us! I’m heading out Tuesday to see what I can find.
Okay, I’m going to sew for an hour or 2. There’s light at the end of the tunnel re: the new Art Gown. xoxo
Hello Resa, on my recent trip I saw quite a few animals in the wild but I never saw a Sea Turtle (though I did spot some Koi Carp in the botanical gardens I visited).
This turtle is magnificent.
Agree, the turtle is magnificent! So is Messi!
Great stuff all around!
This is beautiful. i wish we had this on the side of our house. I’d die happy x
ww! I have a Monarch Butterfly on mine. There is something neat about having art on the outside of our homes.
Beautiful as always, and especially because if you take a peek into the alley, suddenly you are transported from the cityscape into the seascape.
It’s true. Art does transport one… all arts!
Hope you are well!
Thank you for the introduction to Christina Mazzula. I found her on Instagram and saw that you were following her too. Life is the best when we meet up with artists.
She is a wonderful artist! I’ve posted several of her works.
I’m blocked from IG, until I give up my bd. Fine! I could lie, but no.
Am I the last person on earth who values their privacy?
We live in a complex time where privacy is a valuable commodity.
What stunnig images! They make me think of this lovely song from “Arielle…”:
… Under the sea
Under the sea
Darling it’s better
Down where it’s wetter
Take it from me… 😉
Have a fine new week and stay safe, dear Resa! 🙂
Lovely comment, Martha.
You have a great week, too!
She is gorgeous, Resa! What a stunning piece of art! Those colors…💙
It was a joy to find this.
I’m heading out tomorrow to search for art. I hope I find something! 💙💙
Good luck, Resa, and I’m sure you will! You always do! 🤗
Magnificent find Resa. The colours are so vibrant. What talent. Fabulous photography! ❤ xx
Thank you re: my photography, Debby!
The artist, is terrific. ❤ xxo
Hugs xoxo ❤
Go turtle go! I always think of the cool turtle in animated movie Finding Nemo ~ And I’m smiling now 😊
Yay! Glad you are smiling. Makes me smile! xo
Wow Resa .. awesome.. and I bet the print is coming on dresses soon💞
So vibrant. I agree that the alley came alive. So glad you shared this one. It’s beautiful. ❤ ❤
