"I Only Have Eyes for You" today.
|Artist "Guy With Red Shoes," Swirling Eyes, paint on brick wall.|
This eye-catching mural is found on the side of a retail business (no relationship to the imagery) facing their parking lot. There is no artist's mark that I can find, but you can see his backside self-portrait hanging there, a la Norman Rockwell.
Due to cars being in the way, this has to be taken at an angle, but it's OK because the artist certainly is using distortion as part of his message anyway. Plus, as you drive or walk by, the head-on angle is not the experience any ever gets of this work. This artist has other works in East Hollywood which I will show you in coming weeks. I know their his because these floating eyes are his signature.
You can see this work as you drive west on Hollywood Boulevard. Just keep your eyes peeled to the south after you pass Normandie. This picture was actually taken this morning. I've been waiting for a good day, but since there were no shadows this morning, and only some glare I decided to use this and pre-empt something else.
AND NOW BACK TO OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED LANDSCAPE
And here we are again withe blue sky with some morning low clouds. And here's the second look with higher clouds over land.
By the way, if you are a regular reader of this blog, know that I am on vacation for a bit, so do not expect to see any updates here until after June 6.
Until then, play safe, work hard, and sleep soundly.
