A bit of bright after a dark week!



The Monday mural I had intended to post today is a little sombre.. I figured the events of the past week were gloomy enough so was super happy when I came across this delightfully colourful 'not quite black' :) swan down Grand Lane, between Wellington and Murray St. in the city.. painted by English born Perth artist Sioux Tempestt..   


Sioux uses a variety of mediums to create her work, digital art being one. The series 'Chronicle' shown here 'challenging observers to look at their city differently', the deconstructed images incorporating the artist's love of colour and Perth's heritage buildings.. below on the window of Print Hall during Windows of the City back in August. I unfortunately missed her last exhibition, but to further my own love of colour and Perth's heritage buildings I will make sure I don't miss the next :) Happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  1. That helps to brighten the day but it's going to remain dark as the U.S. is moving quickly to become a fascist country.

  2. I love the shades of color used in these two. They are very spring-like and very cheery.

  3. Mission accomplished, Grace. Nice and light and fun-filled and pretty. The mural, not you, though those words certainly apply to you, too. I can't figure out how to get out of this loop . . . in trouble for sure!

  4. Well, hopefully things will be well for America, I'm still in disbelief. Very sad indeed. But your colorful insight for us is incredibly sweet!

  8. Colourful and cheerful, mission accomplished Grace. Lots of depressed people out there and I can't blame them.

  11. I love Perth too! A dear friend of mine lives there and has shown it to me :)
    We will endure, we will stand up, we shall vote in midterm elections in 2 years, and for president in 4...

    Yes, it was more than just "Black Friday" last week.

  17. This is great colour - which is good to see.
    As I look out of the window our skies are quite grey!

    All the best Jan

  18. The bright colours are totally gorgeous, but won't life the dark mood that has settled on the USA election results. I am appalled at the outcome.

    Nice photos Grace.
