The fact that it’s B & W highlights the effect of the sun from different positions in the underpass.

Dizzy ‘n Blue

It was sunny last Sunday. It’s been mostly all grey since, again.

It’s been the darkest winter + spring = ever!

It makes a blue and dizzy feeling.

Just trying to put a light hearted spin on it.

My Chickadee & the Underpass

Okay, we’re back to finish viewing the underpass that was started before the end of October celebrations.

A fab Blue Jay was turning the corner. It is followed by this adorable Chickadee & gorgeous Day Lily.

The Chickadee heralds the way into the dark underpass.

The underpass is filled with 4 fab pieces of Graffiti Writing.

First is a black and blue/greens piece.

This blows up amazing!

Then a multi-colour, soft feeling piece.

I love the sectional close-ups of writing.

There is a short, sharp pink and white piece.

Then a biggie in pink, orange and blue take us to the end of the underpass.

Blows up nicely

Around the corner is my first presentation of “Robin, Flowers and a Maple Leaf”. You can see a titch of the maple leaf at the far end.

The Blue Jay & the Rose

This is the last piece on the outer wall, before we enter the dark underpass.

What a beauty!

After the final piece in my previous post (see a bit of it at the extreme left in the image below) is this wonderful abstract that segues into the Blue Jay.

Pic blows up okay.

You can see the Blue Jay piece curving around into the underpass.
