Like an arrow through the heart...




 Never to be seen again.. nothing makes you die
Like an arrow through the heart... Bee Gee's

We've all had our heart broken at least once right! I've seen this mural so many times on Newcastle St. but as it's mostly business parking on this busy road I haven't stopped. I really like it so last week I made the effort to find a park and take a few pics.  Painted on a wall adjoining an overgrown vacant plot and with the weather a little cloudy it was the perfect touch of pathos don't you think :) Did I mention that after a weekend of painting every muscle in my body hurts, it's true! Hope your weekend was/is a little more relaxing than mine, happy new week, take care and stay safe...

  9. Surely you are not in as much pain as the lady in the mural?
    Soak in a tub of hot water with a cup of Epsom Salt added. I promise it will soothe your muscles...Janey

  10. It has such powerful graphics, the gold halo and flame hair running out of the frame. But, although the figure appears female, it reminds me of pictures of St. Sebastian.

  11. Somehow that setting works well for the sad mural.

    Take an aspirin and call me in the morning.

  13. As the mural on the right says "winning isn't everything". Hope the aches & pains of your painting was worth it. Take care etc

  14. I'm certain that being pierced by an arrow is not as bloodless and painless as that!

  15. Frankly disturbing, making me reflect that art should be occasionally disturbing. Good lesson. Glad you accomplished the painting! wow

  17. The arrow is a bit to real through hand and hart to make it fun .It indeed hurts also.
