Mellow Yellow, Blue Monday Mosaics and Murals

Happy Monday. I should be working on falling asleep. I worked until 10:30 Sunday night and have to be back at the store at 7:30am. I am feeling a bit achy and headachy, fighting something off I suppose.I don’t have the option of calling out of work, so not matter how I feel, I will be getting up in 6 short hours!

My city, Philadelphia is covered in murals. We love to drive around the different neighborhoods of the city and see if we can find new murals. The murals are mostly part of the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program.

In addition to the painted murals (often time including other medium), Philadelphia is also the home of Isaiah Zagar, and amazing mosaic artist whose murals can be found around the city and at Philadelphia Magic Garden, a row home that is almost entirely covered in Isaiah’s works, both inside and out. It is one of my favorite places in the city!

I have shared Isaiah’s works before but never as a part of Monday Mural.

I love looking for words and quotes within the mosaics.
This is the artist Isaiah Zagar riding his bike past a wall of his work.

I’m linking up to a few Monday Meme’s with this post…

Thank you for stopping by my blog to visit! I would love to see you join us at Two Shoes Tuesday. Please don't worry about it being "good enough"… that is a common issue with most of us, and I work hard to make sure that we keep it a friendly place where everyone can come and share without feeling critiqued. The idea is to give us some writing exercise and to enjoy the fun of exchanging our efforts on a common theme. Just be yourself and write to please you, and I'm certain we'll enjoy what we read! 🙂

I love this mosaic house – wow, the hours that have gone into it. Bright colors never fail to cheer us up; this is magnificent! Thank you for sharing such wonderful photos!
