Hummmm

The colours are just gorgeous on this garage door Humming Bird.

The flowers, insects… beautiful.

The alley’s garage doors are an outdoor gallery.

This row is across form a park. Past the park, both sides of the alley are lined with art. Timothy says he’ll do a 360. Next alley, or this one when I get back to it, I will take the needed shots!

Great Performances

I heard of an interesting mural. When I got there, the building was torn down, & new construction underway.

I wandered lonely as a cloud, through high-rises and their lanes.

I turned into a parking lot, and found art performance fame.

High-rises, and the areas they are located in, are not prime street art venues.

Look how high up (about 18 stories) & huge this beauty is!

Did the best I could with my Iphone camera.

Two days later, and I’m still feeling the find.

The Artist is unknown to me, at this time.

This mural looks freshly done, so a plaque might be going up soon.

The Snail Lady

It’s a whole new appreciation for snails!

I would NEVER eat one.

Although they seem to make cute pets.

They are possibly good for your skin, but I haven’t googled that.

The Artist:

Eye had an epic failure trying to make a Snail Lady of my own.

Still, Eye got to try 3 new colours in a new brand of water colour pencils. What was Eye thinking? A Snail Lady with blue eyes?

Rhinos’ Playdate

This post is a loving tribute  to all Rhinos.

RHINOS

Gigi made Rhinos for Holly, Beth and Resa. Aren’t they beautiful? They each got to name their own Rhino.

They decided their Rhinos should meet for a playdate in a Flower Fairy Garden.

Of course, where there are flowers, there are butterflies. Hello, Butterfly Boa Lady here! Like me, the Rhinos will be adored by all butterflies.

 Runway belongs to Holly.

Rosy belongs to Resa.

Resa horned in with a little fun with Beth’s fun.

Roland belongs to Beth.

Resa scouted the garden, to make sure there were more than enough flowers for the Rhino’s, and that there would be plenty left for fairies and butterflies.

You Put a Spell on Me

You put a spell on me, now I’m the magic on this wall.

When Torch Singer Rene Rosso saw this captivating wall art, she felt the spell’s magic, and has added the mesmerizing Jay Hawkins song, “I Put a Spell on You” to her repertoire.

One of her fave renditions (of the uber many) is by Joss Stone.

Like the music, the art draws one in.

Rene Rosso and her alter ego Princess Blue Holly, are greatly influenced by Holly – House of Heart

Resa would like Rene Rosso to make the poem – black spell night – by Holly into a sultry Torch Song. Resa has designed the perfect gown (above) to go with it.

Click on the poem, and see the original post!
