As I got out of my car this morning, I noticed a bright white spot on the back of my otherwise clean car, and sure enough, a close look revealed it to be bird poop. But a close look also revealed the reflection of trees and a basketball hoop, with the bird poop almost resembling […]
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know that there have been numerous occasions over the years where I tend to see interesting things on the slate sidewalks in Glen Ridge, NJ. Even though I’m often walking the exact same path (down Ridgewood Avenue), either while walking my dogs or on my way […]
The other day I was walking home from an errand and noticed two planes leaving white trails in the sky … except one was going at a nearly-perfect 90 degree angle through the other one. It’s easy enough to say “what’s the big, who cares?” but on the flip side, I’m still curious why someone […]
As I start my Sunday morning, I thought back to this graffiti I saw in New Orleans a few weeks ago, on Montegut Street between Chartres and Royal Streets: one person spray-painted the words “today’s mantra is … create” and someone else came along and added “cool stuff!” Sounds like a good idea to me!
I recently turned 50, and so it seemed a bit prophetic to have seen these two works of street art a few feet away from each other. I saw them on West 22nd Street between 10th and 11th Avenues in New York City. I’d guess they’re by two different artists, but they certainly seem to […]
What do you think of this statement? I kind of like it … sticker art by Portland-based street artist “Rx Skulls” as seen on Chartres Street in New Orleans. To learn more about this artist, check out his website here.
I have a habit of seeing things that may or may not be there … visual references to art seem to come up on a regular basis. Like the time I saw a Notre Dame gargoyle in a messed-up hard-boiled egg … or Hokusai’s famous “Wave” print on the sidewalk … now I’m seeing a […]
I saw this truck parked on Chartres Street in New Orleans, and my first thought was that the hood would make a great abstract expressionist painting. One might argue that it bears a slight resemblance to a Franz Kline painting – scroll down below the truck to see Kline’s painting “Buttress” from 1956. What do […]
I saw both of these on sidewalks in NYC the other day. Below left we have “Cats Rule, Dogs Drool,” and below right we have what looks like a bumpy dinosaur or pterodactyl, but I’m having a hard time making out what the word below it is supposed to be … if you know anything […]
I’m sure most people are familiar with artist Robert Indiana’s “LOVE” art works, including the sculpture (below left) which resides on 6th Avenue in New York City, and the painting (below right) on canvas, which resides in the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Scroll down for the “LOVE” I saw in New Orleans. I saw this […]
