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!

The Artists?

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!

Girl with Guitar

This was a challenge to shoot.

It had been raining off and on, this day. From how dry the cement was under the white car, I figured the person must work at Long and McQuade.

I hung around anyway. Eventually, the red car moved.

Did my best without a direct on shot.

 

Here’s my fave girl with a guitar. I always thought this song was titled Mermaid Cafe. I also just realized, Joni plays a dulcimer in this song. Oh well!

The piece is unsigned, but the guitar is a Les Paul

Kool Kats

Hello! I’m your vocalist for the evening, and I am in the Koolest band, ever!

As you can see, the Kool Kats has an upright bass, singer, keyboardist, trumpeter, drummer and accordionist.  

Let’s have a hand for the band!

That’s our manager. Wish he’d quit smoking, but he thinks it’s kool, and he’s a kool kat, too!

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!
