Pink Saturday - Super Chicken

Beverly at the blog How Sweet the Sound has a great idea! It's Pink Saturday. Post about something pink, on Saturday. Here are the rules if you want to Get Pink!


This graffiti mural is on a retaining wall along Glendale Boulevard in Echo Park. I love how the muralist has created, with paint, the shininess of the spaceship's cockpit glass bubble, and the sleekness of the ship's pink body. The ship has the glamor of a souped-up pink hot rod. The chicken, immaculately white with a jaunty red comb, gazes ahead heroically, blasting off on his journey, rising up over the 101 freeway, bursting through the clouds into the stratosphere.

Journey on, brave chicken! Perhaps you'll land on a pink planet!

What a cute pink Saturday post. Some graffiti artists are so talented and when they are in an appropriate place or done as a mural they are lovely. Blast on little chicken.
Happy Pink Saturday!

How I love to discover graffiti. I remember the arroyo along the 10 outside Pasadena was a veritable art gallery. The Pink Rocket is delightful

Hope you are having a great Pink Saturday!
