Wordless Wednesday! Starry Squirrel

 

The top of this thing’s tail is about 5 feet tall. (that’s 1.8 metres for the rest of the world)

Have a great Wednesday! ~Phil

Wordless Wednesday!

A gorgeous mural on the side of a medical building in Buffalo, NY. And I know what you’re thinking, no, I didn’t pose for that. Happy Wednesday! ~Phil

Wordless Wednesday

I found this mural on the side of a theater in Erie, Pennsylvania last week. Have a great Wednesday! ~Phil

Thursday Doors!

I don’t often do the Thursday Doors, which is the brainchild of Norm 2.o, but when I find a spectacular one I like to join the fun. THis is the entrance to the Columbia Restaurant, which opened in 1903, in the Ybor district of Tampa.

Have a great night! ~Phil

2016: The Year The Music Died

If February 3, 1959, when a plane carrying Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson crashed, is “The Day The Music Died”, then 2016 is The Year The Music Died. In the past year we’ve lost David Bowie, Prince, Merle Haggard, Glenn Frey, George Michael and several more impactful musicians.

This beautiful mural is outside of the House of Blues in Boston. The painting “is the work of a trio of artists and House of Blues restaurant employees: Hannah Earley, Meghan Pierce, and Sydney Steeves.” Quote courtesy of Vanyaland.com  Have a great Wednesday! ~Phil

Wordless Wednesday! Together We Fall

Another of the awesome murals from my city’s annual mural festival. It’s hard to see, but it’s two people fighting and falling. The mural is by Li Hill. You can follow him or her on Instagram @li_hill.

Have a great Wednesday! ~Phil

Wordless Wednesday! Pebbles

FullSizeRender (3)

The picture is titled Pebbles and was painted last year in my hometown by Swedish artist Andreas Englund. Andreas Englund, based in Stockholm, is mostly recognized for the realistic and humorous oil paintings depicting the everyday life of an anonymous superhero. The series ranges from the superhero’s first mission as a toddler to being an old man, still struggling with everyday trivialities. I feel very fortunate to have one of these murals in my town because he has painted this specific character all over the world. In addition to his website, which I linked above, you can also follow him on Instagram. Have a great Wednesday! ~Phil

Wordless Wednesdays are back! Let’s be honest. I live in the northeast. Who wants to go out snapping pictures in the bleak, cold of winter? Each year my city hosts a mural festival. The picture above,titled Detecting Machine, was painted by the artists Nevercrew, which is Christian Rebecchi and Pablo Togni.

Have a great Wednesday! ~Phil

This is an incredible new mural painted recently in my city by Australian artist Vexta. She gets a super hero name and travels the world painting stuff like this. How cool is that? Photo by Jason Wilder. I could have taken my own picture with my cell phone, but honestly, I’m terrible at taking good pictures. Have a great Wednesday! ~Phil
