Cat’s Third Eye is a Gem

Found this on a garage door a few blocks from home.

I’d like to hit some other alleys in the city, but I won’t take public transportation to get there and back.

I can do a 3 – 4 hour walk.

A few times I got a ride from N to a place where it’s a 4 hour walk back home.

Fortunately, I have lots of pics stashed!

A Verrie Sherrie Hallowe’en

I hope this doesn’t terrorize you all, too much!

But if you have the nerves for it, sit back, relax and enjoy the hell ride!

Oh, so hideous!!!

Blinded you with the last one, eh? Well we’ll just have to work in B&W until our retinas recover!

Giant insects

Lizards … I like lizards, unless it’s

GODZILLA

Who thinks of these things? Vincent Price? Boris Karloff?

Tim Burton?

Horror comes in many more forms. Yet, what could be more horrifying to man or woman than wearing

this hideous bondage costume on Hallowe’en?

Dedicated to my dear niece (daughter I never had) Sherrie. Hallowe’en is her fave!

AND THE WINNER OF RESA’S MOST HORRIFYING STREET ART FIND OF 2020

HELP! It’s me, Neil Young, and I’m melting!

Rest in Flowers

This garage door art made gasp out loud from its beauty.

Part way through making this post, I heard about the passing of Eddie Van Halen.

So, I dedicate this post to Eddie.

Guitar is my fave instrument. I dated drummers, bass players, keyboardists, horn players and singers. For me, there’s nothing like a hot guitar player.

Rest in Flowers! RIFF, Eddie!

The Artist:

You can feel his fingers on those strings and on the fret board! He was a true rock guitar artist.

Makes me feel even more honoured to have some of my one-eye art, on Art Guitars custom made & played by Timothy Price from Off Center Not Even

Abstract Art Guitar art – Tumultuous is by Tiffany Arp-Daleo.

❤️ Queen of Hearts ❤️

Holly – House of Heart, this is for you!

A year and a half ago, I went out searching for this mural.

It’s in the area between Queen & King Streets, but I couldn’t find it. There was construction everywhere: demolishment, cranes, scaffolding and I figured, it’s gone!

A couple of weeks ago, I was in in the same area. Construction had evolved. I look down an alley and see this splash of colour.

As I got closer, I thought it’s like Holly.  It’s not just that it’s as pretty as Holly, but it’s the 2 personas, and the blonde and red hair. I draw Holly in 4 characters: Rene Rosso & Princess Blue Holly (both red heads), Art Gowns Model Holly & Boogapony Holly (both shades of blondes).

Then, when I stepped back and looked the entire mural, I realized it was the one I had tried to find, a year & half ago.

There are a lot of elements to this mural, all depicting the rich cultural tapestry, that defines the area.

At the bottom left, as we look at it, there is this neat fairy fiction person. Unfortunately it was tagged. I cleaned it up as much as I could for this presentation.

To the left of the Queen of Hearts are 4 creative types. I have put them in a slideshow, below.

To celebrate these minor players in the mural, and finding the Queen of Hearts, I chose a song by Queen!

To the right of the Queen of Hearts, are 4 more alternative/creatives. Find them in the slideshow, below.

To celebrate those characters, I choose a song by Heart. Now we have a complete musical, Finding the Queen of Hearts.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the Queen of Hearts, as much as I have!

Best mural car reflection I ever took!

Buffy Sainte Marie

Found a Bell Box with Buffy Sainte Marie on it.

I know I had this song in another post. It is my favourite Buffy song ever, with outstanding performances by all. It is one of my very fave songs, top 10!

4th Try was a Charm

I thought this was a well done piece, but there was a big ass vehicle parked.

I couldn’t get a straight on shot, and ended up with demented angles. Those are interesting, but I just wanted a straight on.

I tried everything… reflections…

Next time was even tighter between the vehicle, and the art.

Took pics of the cute motorbike. A Harley or BMW is a motorcycle.

The time after that, I was impressed with how close the vehicle was parked to the wall, without knocking off the rear view mirror.

Then it happened on my 4th time walking by.

There was an old, low car there, and I could take head on pics.
