Thursday Challenge: Blue -

"Blue"
digital photograph by Mick Mather
Thursday Challenge continues with another color. Blue is this week's theme, last month it was yellow, in May we had pink and way back in January it was black. Anyway, another graffiti photograph, taken last weekend, surely seems to fit ... and, I'm already planning a Noon desertion on Friday to kick off my vacation. Let me see, who can I rope into a 3-martini lunch? Hmm. :D

This graffiti artist seemed to have a lot of energy and channeled into his painting. Interesting take on the theme.

I'd leave right now if I could ... however, I'm certain that the moment I hop off the airport shuttle, fetch you out of that 6-foot hole and get us both to the nearest local tavern, all of the maritini's will be long gone! :O

leora:
It's always a pleasure to see a new, frinedly face ... thanks for this comment. I liked this piece the moment I saw it. As far as my take on the theme? Sometimes a literalist point of view is just the ticket. :)

harlequinpan:
Thanks, Harle, I appreciate it. :)

Finally I got access to MY computer! This reminds me of another graffiti, seen not long ago.

Well, the post from last Sunday was done by the same artist and, now that I think about it, painted on the same railroad car. :)

Enjoy the vacation Mick, where are you heading off to?

I have to tell you, and I mean this in all sincerity, this is my favorite piece of work from you I have seen thus far. If you ask me why, I couldn't really tell you, I just really, really like it. When I opened your blog I went...WOW! It really packs a punch.

Enjoy the vacation, profit bien!

Well, the first thing is, I'm not sure where I'm going. Probably to the Adirondack Mountains, then to Tug Hill to spend some time with my parents and, finally I hope, get familiar with my sketchbook and pencils again.

I'm well pleased that you like this image so much. That, of course, presents a dilemma for me since the work isn't mine. I just happened along at the proper time to get a photograph of it. I don't see cropping and presentation as an art per se, but I can't deny my history in graphic design.

the charm school dropout:
Thanks so much for saying so, Sarah. I have to admit that there's something about this mix of Pollock-inspired graffiti and industrial strength stenciling. The two seem a perfect fit somehow. :D
