Mermaid Corner

Traffic heavy corner, and the best spot was in the middle of the street.

 Middle of the street was a no go, so, I took the first 2 shots & the 6th shot from across the street.

I took these next 3 from the same side of the street.

I thought, it’s black and white, so I put it through a black and white filter for the next pic.

Red Dawn

Some beautiful words by Holly and a gorgeous video. I’m neck deep in paperwork, but will be back to my abnormal routine next week. In the meantime, enjoy this!

House of Heart

At night we entwine
interlacing tendrils weaving
bodies stretching, limbs
reaching, giving way, every ripple
replicated in the amber sand.
Nights are as sweet as dew drops
on a rose and each breath is a vow.
A silent Oracle I inscribe Arabesque
across the grain of your skin
so that when you wake
you will remember.

Luv Cat

I fell in love with this cat art.

I did my best, but it was in a dead end crevice, about 4 feet wide.

There was no backing up within the slot, to shoot.

I shot weird angles from the street at the edge of the crevice, and from across the street.

The pics aren’t great. There was no way to capture the entire piece, but the cat is so fab, I’m sharing anyway.

Street Art Poetry: Resa and I – Collaboration

This is the 3rd Street Art Poetry door Charlie and I have done together, even though we live 2,520 miles away from each other, and have only met in the blogosphere. MAKE ART NOT WAR
I’ll be closing comments, so head to Charlie’s blog to see the entire presentation & comment.

Charlie Zero The Poet

Our 3rd collaboration in ‘Street art poetry’.

Resa’s interpretation of my words ‘Mermaid’.
The color palette and the eye brings out the beauty in a mermaid.
She gives life to the painting and the words speak for themselves.

The eye of the mermaid sees beyond truth and love.

Resa is a rock star and a talented and wonderful human to us all here on WordPress. Her contribution to the arts is phenomenal. 

Without further ado our collaboration! Resa is the best and she really did such a beautiful job.

My vinyl eyes
painted
hot orgasm.
The eerie rose
spilled cryptic commas.

I noticed the mermaid is forming a heart around the words.

The Beautiful Mermaid feeling some sun. 🙂

Miss Mermaid is now in the shade staring right at you to read the poem.

Beautiful colors on this door. The colors blossom brightly. 🙂

Resa is an incredible photographer.

Waterford Walls 2019

You must check out this spectacular post from Inese!!!!! Thank you Waterford Walls!!! AND thank you, Inese!

 

Making memories

I was out of town during the Waterford Walls festival this August, and only recently took some photographs, probably covering only a half of the walls. Here is a link to the previous Waterford Walls blog posts if you need it for a reference. Please visit the artists websites. All the links in this blog open on separate pages and your reading won’t be interrupted.

Yasja’sNorthern lights-inspired work wasn’t included in the festival map, but I knew it was a recent work. I would have noticed if it has been there before. Yasja is a brilliant artist from Amsterdam and I choose her work for my opening picture.

I walk wall to wall, and it takes me about two hours to see all these wonderful murals.

Niamh Curry  grew up in Clonmel, Ireland. She is a self-taught artist, and her works are recognizable for their bright colors and…
