That’s Local Colour

All photos taken on February 2, 2022.

Out running a few errands this date, before the snow, rain and sleet hit, we found ourselves on the South side of False Creek. After parking the car, we wandered by this mural by famous mural painter Okuda San Miguel from Spain.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Okuda does great work and we are happy to have seen his work in Edmonton and Vancouver. Also watched him paint the Edmonton mural. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan


    1. The first time we saw his work was when he did the tall mural in Old Strathcona in Edmonton. He painted the one in Vancouver a year later I think and we were happy to finally see it. Thanks for reading. Allan

    1. Hard to believe he does it all with a grid layout and spray cans. Better than your average graffiti artist. I am with you on art. I only have 2 questions I ask myself. Do I like it? Do I not like it? It matters not to me the artist’s mood or what he had for breakfast. Thanks for reading and your comments Leighton. Allan
