    1. I know, but that’s what happens outside because the art is unprotected.
      Happily, I’ve documented some here, and new pieces get painted every day!! 🙂 🙂

  1. Reminds me of the time I watched several Buddhist Monks create a sand mandala for peace and then, at the end of a week, they blew it off into the aethers. It was magnificent, yet they were illustrating that nothing lasts forever. But I just can’t get my mind around that, especially when the Egyptian pyramids are still thrilling people after centuries. I’m glad you were able to document these wonderful paintings!

    1. Thank you!
      You know, it could take thousands of years more, but the pyramids could be gone.
      Also, horrific people such as Daesh could destroy them.
      We live in an odd world, and we must fill it with all the good we can. Much love to you!

    Great you got them recorded before they were painted over. I have a lot of photos of architecture and things that no longer exist.

  3. Thank goodness you had photos of these, Resa.
    When I relocated, I had to give away 4/5ths of everything I owned (along with all my furniture). Moving it was too expensive. That included my collection of colorful blazers and jackets — they were my identity. I didn’t think to make photos of them, but (post move) I found images of some from the retailer. LOL, I commemorated a RIP for my jackets. ^^’ Hugs on the wing.

    1. I love street art. However, it gets mutilated by young brats…rapscallions!
      You have a new ID now! You are very sentimental, as m I.
      Anyway, back on GLAM to work on the post!

  4. It’s sad that these gems don’t exist anymore, Resa, but wonderful that they are kept safe right here. Because of you, I notice murals more often now. It’s like when a family member or friend buys a new car, suddenly you see that make and model everywhere! Now, whenever I see a mural, I think of you. 😉 I’d love to capture some in photos and send to you if I ever get the chance. Happy Monday! 💗💗💗

    1. Lauren!

      Took me only 1/2a year to find this comment. LOL!!!
      How sweet that you think of me when you see a mural. Hey, I hope you get the chance. I sure welcome guest art posts! Not a big deal, but I use one of the pics a person sends in, put it on my sidebar, and link to your blog! xoxoxo

      1. No worries, Resa! 🙂 Yep, I do think of you whenever I see a mural, and I actually captured an octopus a while ago. I don’t know if the shot is good or not, but if you’d like to see it, let me know where to send it to…or I can check on your blog again. Happy weekend! xoxo

        1. Yow… Love to see the octopus!
          resaswork@gmail dot com
          I write out dot com to fool email vacuuming bots, but you know what I mean.
          Also… it’s supposed to be Resa’s Work …long story short…. Gmail has decided I am Resa Swork.
          You have a fab weekend too! xxoo

Speak your art mind!
