There was this crazy ugly egg on Queen W. It somehow advertised a condo.
The art supply store is right beside the egg.
I bumped into Birdo in the store. He was buying spray paint, and told me he was painting the egg.
I grabbed a couple of pics, then decided to come back when it was completed.
Looks like the egg is hatching!
Best egg, ever!!!

I think it does not show an egg, but an armadillo. When threatened, they can coil up like this. If you google for armadillo and then look at the pictures, you will see pictures showing that.
I see what you mean!
I checked and you are correct! Birdo calls it Armadillo in the Daytime! You’re very good with nature! Thank you!
You find the most amazing street art to photograph. Always interesting to read and see your blog. Keep up the good work
I will try! So far, there’s lots of street art to find. 😀
I like it too, very reptilian, which I am not a fan of, but still think from a distance it looks cool. 😉
I adore some reptiles (newts, Iguanas, dragons) Others… not so much (crocodiles, alligators) 😀
It’s a very coll egg! 😀
Wow; I love it. What an amazing treat for you to find Birdo actually engaged in the painting! You must have felt like Christmas was happening early… Haha! 🙂
Birdo is just lovely! I keep trying to buy his paint spattered clothes, but no luck so far!! LOL! 😀 xoxoxo
What a coup that would be!
I just know you’ll keep trying…. good luck! LOL! 😀
wow 🙂 this is so cool. kinda like a dragon egg
Yes!!! A dragon egg! How cool! 😀
It reminded me of Alien. Don’t go too close, Resa, something will burst out of the thing! Very cool, though. Nice to observe from a distance of several miles to avoid potential Ripley issues.
For sure!!! It is very ALIEN(ish)! If you were here, I would make you walk right up close to it with me! However, you are not…. so next time I’m there (this week) I intend to touch it!
If you don’t hear from me again, give my regards to Holly and tell Steve the hamster I love him!
Down a few bottles of wine and charge the bloody thing! You’ll be fine. I expect to see the police report on your blog shortly.
wow , that is indeed amazing, Resa.. looks indeed as something from outer space as well. ❤
I just love that I never know what I will find in the streets of Toronto! 😀 ❤
Interesting … I may be too scared to walk by it. 😉
Perhaps…. but I know you would take pics of it! 😀
LOL … probably so.
Reblogged this on Die Erste Eslarner Zeitung – Aus und über Eslarn, sowie die bayerisch-tschechische Region!.
My first thought was also a dragon egg, Resa. What detail, and to meet the artist, as well – pretty special and cool! You find some amazing talent! 🙂
The artists are fascinating. I’ve met quite a few now, and I always adore it. Hopefully the street art will continue, and therefore so will my blog! 😀
Wow! How cool is that! It’s phantastic!
It is very cool & phantastic! Let’s just hope it doesn’t hatch! 😀
Shivers ! You can make even the most macabre a delight Resa. Indeed, hoping it doesn’t “hatch”. Run for the hills!!
The temperature went up to 0C today. I was able to walk to the art store for an eraser, more HB pencils, and paint for my new Art Gown.
That’s where the Egg is, beside the art store. It was wearing a snow hat. I broke out laughing. No alien egg could survive being hideous in a snow hat. We are all reduced to looking like goofs in our winter gear.
So my guy saw the unfinished boogapony outfit sketch. He asked, so I told him about the outfit. He wanted to know if I had one, and if so could I put it on. FCOL, I walk around in my red & black lumberjack shirt all the time. I might as well have gotten a haircut.
Wear the boogapony outfit girl. Even a lumberjack shirt would look good on you! I am a yoga pants an sweater girl around the house, socks in the winter, other wise barefootin’ it.
What’s a boyfriend for? I’m so rude!! ❤️
🍷🍷 Cheers to us!
An armadillo egg shaped into art. Beautifully well done and you’ve capture the moment of the armadillo egg and its creative artistic gem. 🙂
Miss you resa. Hope all is well. How have you been?
I am back!
I’ve missed you, too, Charlie!
Love your new poem, and as always,I need to think about it a lot before I comment.
Great to see you back!
Bless you my friend. 🙂
By the way, has anyone tagged the black door to your outside apartment? Is my quote still there? curious.
Take all the time you need to analyze my latest. 🙂
NO ONE EVER TAGGED IT!!!!
Interestingly enough, the BIA (a Toronto thing) came by and blacked it out.
Then the taggers came. It’s now covered in tags which the BIA has done nothing about.
Now that you are back, I will paint the other words you sent. However, I need above 0C. to paint it. As we have had & will have many sub-zero’s for the next month, I’m not sure when that will be. I’ll keep you posted! xo
Awesome! Please do keep me posted. 🙂
Wow, I love the way it looks like it is hatching 😀
I like that too! 😀 It was covered in snow yesterday, and was not as scary looking! 😀
What a beautiful armadillo! And how exciting to run into the artist. Speaking of street art advertising strange things, I have one from BC which I find hilarious and I will send you. Also more stuff from Sao Paulo is heading your way… xoxo
What a find!
