Pastel Peace

My fave image from a very long mural.

However, let’s begin at the beginning, from left to right.

There’s more, but this is what I could get in 1 shot.

Too, bad! Only a few months old and already tagged.

Now, the rest of it!

The Jeep? Okay, she’s not a sea creature, but unfortunately, she finds them tasty. She insisted on being in this blog post. Of course she is the most glamorous cat on earth at this moment, along with her BF, Emmy.

A Big Beautiful Bouquet

I send these flowers out to Carolee Croft.

Artist: Chris Perez

She has done me the honor of reviewing “Nine Black Lives”, which I wrote several years ago.

Artist: Chris Perez

She called it “glamorous” & we all know how I love glamour. I find it everywhere, even in alleys.

Artist: Chris Perez

I went wild and used up the rest of my camera’s battery when I saw these.

Artist: Chris Perez

Chris Perez has covered 2 sides of what I would call a very large shack. He’s turned a vicious eyesore, into a thing of beauty with his abstract floral painting.
