Okay, I admit feelings of joy and satisfaction when I found this.
I’ve always been a fan of Birdo.
Here, he does a piece with Alfalfa.
Interesting reflection in a cars bumper.

Okay, week 6 of isolating is upon me.
Like many, I am very cooped up at home, venturing out for necessities, only.
I’d prefer to run in the wind, wild and free.
But, we must flatten the curve!
Anyway, I’m determined to have some fun. So, while Covid spins us sadly around,
I’m spinning the spin, until we win!

The Artists: Birdo & Ness
Birdo has lent his talent to Feel Good Lane.

The Artist: Birdo (aka Jerry Rugg)
This alley was painted as a tribute to Barry Luksenberg, who performed under the name “Feel Good”. At 24, he was killed in a motorcycle accident while travelling across Vietnam with a friend.
Birdo & Getso painted this board fence wrapping a high-rise construction site.
It wraps 2 sides. I started at the west end where a Birdo horse lives in a lime green circle.
There are 3 abstracts, all in colorful circles, following to the east..
Then there’s a cute…raccoon? with different size ears.
Followed by 3 more abstracts.
Where it turns the corner, there’s a cute …. donkey?? or Kangaroo?? with different size ears.
Five more abstracts run along the north to south boards.
The final Birdo is gorgeous!

Judging from its condition, the barrier seems to have been there awhile. It feels like a piece or 2 were missing.
There was this crazy ugly egg on Queen W. It somehow advertised a condo.
The art supply store is right beside the egg.
I bumped into Birdo in the store. He was buying spray paint, and told me he was painting the egg.
I grabbed a couple of pics, then decided to come back when it was completed.
Looks like the egg is hatching!
Best egg, ever!!!

I’ve been a big fan of Birdo for 4 years.
I’ve got at least 10 garage doors and other pieces I haven’t posted, yet.
However, this mural is really something special, as it is 5 stories high.
It is in a parking lot in the business area, so the only day for capturing it was Sunday. I don’t like getting up early on Sunday, but I did for this.
