Hubby and I went to what I call the "Big City" the other night, to visit and have dinner with Middle Son and his girlfriend. We don't go very often and sometimes things change from visit to visit.
Okay, I'm wandering and getting off track, sorry.
So, on our little trip to the Big City, we were almost to Middle Sons place, when I saw something that wasn't there before. On the side of a building was new artwork. The entire side of the building. Have you ever tried to paint on a textured surface? It isn't easy. Not only is it not easy, this art was on the side of a building that wasn't tiny and had to require some type of scaffolding, out in the elements to boot. I have no idea how he was able to make the outlines look smooth and not wiggly. No idea.
I snapped a photo as we rounded the corner, then snapped another when we were able to stop in front of it for a second. My photos don't do it justice. The first one we were moving and the second one I could only get a portion of.
A few days later, I emailed my Youngest Son a copy of the photo, showing him that I was using the camera he had given me for Christmas. He emailed me back that the artwork looked like the same style his friend Rene does. I mentioned today that I was thinking of posting it to the blog and did it belong to Rene. He said it didn't, but that it belonged to a friend of Rene's and even sent me a link to a short video of the artist.
Regardless of the type of art you are drawn to, this artwork took talent, skill and a lot of time. I have a deep appreciation for that!
Thank you, Daniel "Weah" Anguilu!
