She Stopped to Smell the Roses

Have you ever stopped to smell the roses?

I mean, did you ever see rose bushes, stop and spend some sniff time?

I have. I’ve also stopped to smell: Lilacs, Lily of the Valley, Peonies, fruit blossoms and more. I don’t want to mss out.

Lightening Eyes

When it is strikes close to home, lightening can be dangerous, terrifying.

Powerful enough for your heart to skip beats

Blinding

Numbing

Incongruous with the morning’s sunshine

… and we all know what comes after lightening

THUNDER

One-Eye Art Gowns Guitars

H’eye all! Tonight I’m your host for a most thrilling announcement event! Timothy Price from Off Center Not Even is using 2 of Resa’s One-Eye drawings to adorn his custom made guitars.

Resa did this One-Eye drawing with Tim and his guitars in mind. It is the first time anyone has seen it, except Tim, myself & Boogapony.

Here is a slideshow of 10 other One-Eyes Resa has done.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yes, there is 1 ~ One-Eye missing from the slideshow, and here it is!

Tim personally picked this blue One-Eye from Resa’s collection.

There will be much deliberation amongst the Art Gowns Models, as to how we would like to present these & possibly more guitars on Art Gowns. While we are waiting to hear from all of the Art Gowns Models, my totally hip cousin, Boogapony, would like to say a few words.

Peace & love everyone! I’m fresh off a Jimi Hendrix tribute post over on Art Gowns & as you know, if it rocks, I’m in! I asked Tim about who some of his fave guitar players are. Here is my pick, of Tim’s faves; Barry Gibbons from ZZ Top.

Back to you, AGM Holly!

Thank you, Boogapony! Not only is Barry Gibbons an ace guitar player, but the song gave me time to change Art Gowns, hair & make-up. I like the feel of the gauntlets for all this rockin’ out! Eric Clapton is another fave guitarist of Tim’s, so here’s my choice for Tim!

It will be a few months until the guitars are 100%.

Nonetheless, if you are interested in buying one of these guitars for $800.00, you can reserve one now!  Contact Tim Price at elcheo@swcp.com.

Resa’s new One-Eye ~ Should she fill in the Eye?

Back in the Alleys

All the BGF’s & dog have been cooped up.

We stayed home.

Some restrictions have been lifted, under certain conditions.

Happy to say, I am back in action in my beloved alleys, and observing conditions.

Only The Lonely

This post is dedicated to Drew, The Lonely Author!

Lonely, as I like to call him, has been resting up in the Dominican Republic.  After a couple of heart attacks, he now awaits surgery.

Restless, I went for an alley walk (no problem keeping social distance in the alleys) and was rewarded with 3 fab garage doors. The moment I laid eyes on this painting, I thought of Lonely.

I have no idea what he looks like, but I know how he feels to me. Lonely is an incurable romantic, and that fact is reflected in his well written & passionate poetry. The colours in this art are like all of the colours, from the various moods, in his poems.

I don’t know what the artist meant by the bleeding purple heart, but that’s Lonely, to me. His heart leads his way. It seems like this image, was painted especially for him.

So join me in wishing Lonely a big GET WELL SOON! After all, he needs to get back to his series “Inspiring Woman Of WordPress”. He was only 2 dedications into the series, when he became ill. I am grateful to have been one of the two.

I picked this song out for you, Lonely. I hope you like it!
