In a lane off Wellesely is this very pretty, but wildly eroded mural.
I’ve never seen paint peeling like this before. It was literally hanging like curled and colorful Post-it notes across a 40 ft. wall.
Had I found this when it was fresh, it would have been a 3-part post. This is all that was left to take pics of. I considered taking a shot of the peeling paint, but alas, I couldn’t bare to be reminded of what I’d missed out on.

They still look clean…glad you clicked them for us 🙂
Your welcome! There was originally about 100 women in the mural. This was all that was left. Still, I’m glad to have shot them! 😀
Like Buddhist sand paintings: here for a while and then gone forever. I admire artists who can create and then let go of their art…
I suppose this is why I am so smitten with outdoor art. As long as I find joy in capturing it, I’ll continue with this blog.
After my blog is gone, well it’s gone from here, too. In the meantime, I will enjoy, and hope all who visit here do, as well.
Fantastic paintings, Resa. The art in Toronto never stop to amaze me ❤ ❤ ❤
Love the texture of these.
I wish I could have seen the mural when it was new. There was so little of it remaining.
I agree, the texture is wonderful.
This still has some life in it, but I get the impression that it may look better here than in person.
BTW … I went into the city yesterday to capture more murals. 🙂
Yay! I look forward to seeing what you found!
Yes, these shots look good, but the mural is a disaster! 😀
I think I captured some good ones. 🙂
Great find dear Resa 🙂
BTW I can see three little chicks amongst the Big Chicks *cluck cluck*
Take care my friend. Love and hugs. Ralph xoxox ❤
Love and Hugs! xoxo ❤ <#
It still looks fabulous. I’m so happy to have seen it. Thank you. ❤
I’m happy I’ve seen it, too! Well, at least I saw a smidgen of it. ❤
Omigosh! These are amazing… I can only imagine what the whole thing must have looked like once upon a time!
I would have loved to have seen it when it was new!
Where is my mind today, Resa? I read your opening sentence as wildly ‘erotic’! Coming down to Earth, and reminding myself where I was, I thoroughly enjoyed The Girls… They don’t look to be too aged and worn. You must have shown us the best of the best… 🙂
I did indeed show the best… all that was left. 😀
How strange, Resa, about the paint peeling. I wonder what type of paint was used. Evidently not the right one. Still and all these murals are incredible. Every time I come here I am in awe of our street artists. OMG! Incredible talent exhibited!! ❤
I don’t know what type of paint was used. I’ve never seen peeling like this, except on very old wooden homes that have not been painted for years.
On that basis, I would think a exterior house paint was used.
Most of the street art is done with spray can paint, which is made from various bases. I believe. It does not peel. It fades and chips. ❤
Ah, that would make sense, Resa. Thank you for the explanation! ❤
Love these. 🙂
They are lots of fun! 😀
This looks like the biodegradable murals in our city that had peeled off in curled strips. Lovely girls, glad you took the pictures before the mural is gone.
Me, too! Whew! Love you! … Rhymes with hue, skew, blue, true, poo, few, mew, flew, drew, did I say poo?
These beautiful tattered ladies are wonderful. I think there might be a metaphor in there somewhere. 😉 As usual great stuff Resa.
You know, Daniel, in a poetic sense, I could say you write…tattered.
It’s a good thing…. my fractured, shattered and impacted friend. 😀 ⭐
So I took your identification and wrote about it. https://danielswearingen.wordpress.com/2017/03/02/tatters/ Because you are right my creative insightful friend! 😉
Wonderful! Go ladies go 🙂 🙂
Women will always go to the future, to the light, as will you! You are one of my very fave ladies. xoxo
They still look great!
Luv you Bumba, and yeah, they still look great!
