'Practically perfect in every way!'



In every job that must be done
there is an element of fun.
You find the fun and SNAP
the job's a game!

In Wolfe Lane to find Mary Poppins by artist JXD, see more of his work about town here, I almost missed her. I was expecting something a little bigger but should have realised she would be flying off to her next gig :) lovely touch of whimsy to the lane, who doesn't love MP! p.s. look what she pulled out of her carpet bag :)


On a larger and more colourful scale, on the exterior of the Paramount Night Club, corner of Roe and Lake Streets in Northbridge, an extensive piece by one of my favourite Perth artists Anya Brock whose work you have seen here many times. Budgies, toucans, parrots, flamingos.. super fab! It's not always easy to find fun on a Monday, well it's actually Tuesday here in Perth, but sometimes you can and in the most unexpected places :) Take care and stay safe..

  1. I like the tiny Mary Poppins. And the nightclub art is also very eye catching.

  3. That second mural's enormous, and quite colourful.

    Miss Poppins, of course, happens to have total disregard for the laws of physics.

  6. Brilliant colors and I do love Mary Poppins. Happy New Years, Grace.

    Oz family living in China visited us over Christmas - divine to see them but I can see they miss Australia loads.

  10. Heel mooi het is prachtig zulke muren met graffiti maar het moet ook weer niet te opdringerig zijn.

  13. The little bit of whimsy on the stairs is magical. The mural works well with the angles of the building walls. Colourfully attractive.

  14. Wow you find the best murals. We watched the doco about P.L.Travers the author of Mary Poppins. She was a strange lady.

  17. I have always loved Mary Poppins and can remember being a kid and sitting in the theatre and watching it over and over again. They don't allow that anymore, but it sure was fun! Wonderful finds Grace. The birds are magnificent!

  19. Interesting that Mary Poppins is shown carrying an AK-47 assault rifle. With her magical powers I didn't think she needed firearms. Great find.

  20. These are great. I prefer the second one.

  21. What a great riot of colour on what would otherwise be very drab walls.

  22. How cool to see Mary Poppins floating along, but those birds blow me away. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  23. I guess Mary Poppins is finding it a teensy bit harder working her wonders in or modern world. Best laugh of the day. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  24. Love Anya Brock's work, it's so bright!
    Wish that Mary Poppins was a bit bigger... There was a documentary on TV about the "real" Mary Poppins (the Australian author) a couple of days ago.

  25. She looks perfect floating along that stairway Grace.
