Jazz – Street Murals

These are two of about eight murals that act as cover for a building that is undergoing renovation. This takes the eyesore out of the construction site. I always thought that all the murals, often seen in groups, were done by one artist. Not so! I think this one had a curator. It’s at Underhill Ave & Lincoln Place in Brooklyn.

Well, the first one says Charlie Parker.┬áBut the second one had no name on it. The artist left it up to us. I think it’s Roy Hargrove. What do you think?

stretch out on hydrangea leaf
bird eyes its next meal
snail pulls back into his shell
the old dance of deception

This one was a building puddle!!!  The garden is getting a good soaking.

In the middle of a thunder storm thought I’d look see what was going on outside…and there he was in my tree height butterfly bush. I guess he was used to the thunder so my opening the door didn’t scare him… I don’t quite get the head upside down though. Maybe he was having a drink..
