Mt. Lawley Murals.. 'Frankly my dear I don't care for spam'..



Back to Sculpture by the Sea tomorrow.. meanwhile I had to share these two murals found when we went to Mt. Lawley last week with visiting bloggers Iris and Ingo.. Both by Australian artist Fieldy who you've seen here before. Gone with the Wind is one of my favourite movies, the play on words of the movie closer classic Rhett Buttler line 'frankly my dear I don't give a damn' tickled my fancy :) and below in Grosvenor Lane a Fieldy portrait of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, both fabulous don't you think! I hope that you've had a peaceful start to the week, happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  1. We do not see murals like these too often: they look more like real works of art!

  6. Frankly, my dear, I've never cared for that canned stuff either but I do like your Gable look! As for Frida K., what's not to love?

  7. The Frida one is so wonderfully colorful...and the first one made me chuckle.
    We have a gray rainy day here....I am still searching for the sun.

  9. Both of these are great! That first one got me to thinking that good old Clark Gable wouldn't even know what spam was......well, maybe except for the canned meat variety.

  11. Good twist on Rhett's famous line.

    I don't care for spam, either...the stuff in the can or the internet version.

  12. I'm not a spam lover either, but I live fairly close to the greatest Spam museum ever, in Austin, Minnesota. Although it's closed for now and is undertaking some serious remodeling and won't reopen until spring of 2016.

  15. Spam has become expensive here for some reason even though it has become a joke of sorts.

  16. Beautiful murals. Good ol' Spam. It is edible, it arrives in email without invitation, and my typewriters are impervious to it in any form.

  17. I was enamoured with Gone With the Wind as a youngster and recalled that scene quite vividly and because of my love affair with México you can imagine correctly that I am fascinated with the art and biography of Frida Kahlo.

  18. I guess you could call these visual puns. He has an engaging sense of humor. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  19. But who doesn't like Spam? Which is not to say you should eat it.

    Frieda is a long way from home. We've been to her and Diego Rivera's house in Mexico City and I guarantee you she was not Hindu.

  20. SUNNY and colourful walls.
    Looks great!

  21. Wonderful murals. That first one made me laugh.

  27. To which Scarlett would reply “Oh fiddlesticks I can’t be doing with that now, I will think about it tomorrow” :-) That is my all time favourite film. Both murals are fab, love the colours in the Frida one.

  28. You found two quite remarkable murals, Grace. I don't care for Spam, either.

  29. I wonder if the writers of Gone With the Wind ever realised that "Frankly my dear ..... " would echo through the centuries?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh, Grace :-))) "Gone with the Wind" is now strongly connected to "The Trueman Show" and "Lost In Translation" for me - you two just cracked me up that day! You can tease pretty well! ;-)
    And be sure it was a sad picture of ugly grafitti I got on the train home to Braunschweig today!
