🎨 Frida Kahlo 🎨

This is the second Frida Kahlo piece I’ve found.

I met the artist, Anya, while traversing alleys and parking lots. OMG! She was so neat. She spent time chit-chatting with me.

She said the art would be done by Thursday end. She had another art engagement on Friday. I didn’t think Anya & MSKA, who was assisting with B.G., would make the date. Wednesday rained all day.

She showed me the self portrait she was basing this mural on.

LOVE the hand/glove earrings!!!

I went back Sunday. It’s not quite finished, but I shot it anyway. I don’t know when I’ll get back there.

I adore the way she has Frida emerging out of the wings of a Monarch. When I returned, dumpsters had been moved in.

I shoot them as I get them.

🦄 Cumpleaños de Aquileana 💜

🎂 Happy birthday, dear Aquileana! 🎂

We’ve shared many posts, and all are very special to me.

Other than the opening shot, I’m moving left to right.

I’ve been saving this mural for a special occasion. Wishing you a wonderful birthday, and thanking you for all the spectacular posts we’ve done together is a perfect time.

Of course, I was hoping to find some Scorpio themed street art with a Scorpion in it, but no such luck.

However, this First Nations inspired art is filled with the mystic,

much like Greek Mythology and the Tarot,

… and much like you.

🦄 HAPPY BIRTHDAY,  AQUILEANA 💜

“Many Graffiti dogs, like this St. Bernard, live in the alleys.”

Some like me, are rescue dogs. (Thank you mommy! ❤️🎵❤️.) The poor little thing below was rescued by Resa’s friend. Buddy was kept in 1 room, never had baths, never went to the park & lived in his own filth.”

“Buddy lives with Resa’s friend now. He goes to the park, gets baths & love.”

‘There is no Year Of The Human. When I see dogs like Buddy (and me before Marina found me) I know why.”
