What made you happy this week?

I was very slow to warm to street art, but an hour or two last year in the Algarve’s graffiti capital, Olhao, finally convinced me.  It can transform the ugly and unloved.  If you haven’t seen any of Dario Silva’s work, you might like to follow the link to Olhão.

Kazimierz, in Kraków, is another of those ‘grungy’ areas where imagination has been allowed to roam.  Who wouldn’t be happy ‘Singing in the rain’?

This little lady gazed artfully at me from a shop doorway in Faro.  Using her womanly wiles to sell.  I resisted, but she caught my attention.

Paula’s theme of Urban Art in Thursday’s Special gave me the opportunity to post something that made me very happy.  In Drama in the Streets I was drawn to the striking lady figure, who seemed to recall a painting in my memory.  Try as I might, I haven’t been able to find her in the art world. If anyone has any ideas, I’d be grateful?  But more importantly, have a happy weekend!

  1. What made me happy this week? Now that’s a difficult question but easy too. Difficult because I can’t remember the exact details and easy because I know it’s alway the life enhancing little thing in any given week that make me happy. Wishing you a happy coming week. 😉

  2. So pleased you’ve been won over by street art – sometimes it can be incredible although other times not sure art is the right word but then that can be said of some the exhibits in the Tate Modern!! 😉

    1. I’m quite choosy about street art, Jane, but I think I was converted a couple of years ago in Glasgow. They have some superb ones, too, but I’ve already posted them.. 🙂
