Washing Away the Dust

Here are more graffiti examples, as begun in An Artful Surprise in a Smelly Alley.


Gastown Graffiti 4


Here my sister shows the scale of the graffiti (this one echoes  Michelangelo’s painting in the Sistine Chapel) on the walls of this Gastown alley, and puts her finger out like God.


Gastown Graffiti 5 (honoring Picasso)



Gastown Graffiti 6


Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. ……….~ Pablo Picasso Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time. Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time. ……….~ Pablo Picasso Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or what’s behind it? ……….~ Pablo Picasso
