Riot of Colors

Architectural digestif

For long, abandoned hospital

Unwanted, hollow shell

Once an eye-sore

Ripens with vivid colors

Graffiti artist adds his touch

Eye-candy or too over-the-top

A matter of opinion


Interesting video of the process


V.J.’s theme: Ripening

K’lee’s theme: Architectural Digestif


About Olga

I have always had an affinity for artistic endeavors and the beauties of nature. The power of the word combined with photography have become my creative spark.

    Your poem is well matched to this photo! Fascinating use of color to brighten up the landscape. A tie-dye building. I watched the video – amazing process. Thanks for sharing.

  3. The colors are bright, for sure. They may stand out like a sore thumb in the neighborhood. Great poem to go with the image, Olga.

    I kind of like it against the sky. But then I’m partial to primaries in art.
    It does seem a shame not to make (affordable) shelter out of old buildings when so many need it. (K)

      Twelve days supposedly from the video info, with some interuption in-between. The project was almost abandoned due to lack of funds and theft of equipment. Thanks for the visit, Irene. πŸ™‚

    I think I…like it. If you live in a big city – in my little village it would have been just too much. The time-lapse was fascinating, and he got fantastic help from so many –

  13. Well done with the prompts! I like the artwork, much more beautiful and alive than abandoned buildings that look like death! πŸ˜€ ❀
