Mosaics are art. I found these outside, so they qualify as Street Art.
This one was on busy downtown street.
The next one is old, in rough shape and found in an alley. Broken mirror pieces are part of the mosaic. That is me in the shatter!

No name on this one, just a piece of gum.

One likes that a lot, one does. The world needs more mosaics.
Yes, we do need more mosaics! ….MORSAICS!
Great mosaic paintings. I’m a big fan of this type of art too.
Yeah!!! Ty for weighing in!
Exquisite work. Love the selfie!
LOL!!! It’s kind of a “back at ya” selfie. ❤
Thank you for sharing this Resa. Mosaics in Canada is great. Normally i think its more turk or egyptian style. Art is international and its wonderful to see mosaics in Canada too. Michael
Thank you, Michael! I hope I find more mosaics. They are very beautiful. Take care!
I really love the mosaics and all of this Resa. Love seeing you in the shatter, a happy coincidence! ♥️
Ya! I’m Shattered…like in the Rolling Stones song. I kept hearing the song the entire time I shot this, and made the posted. However, as shattered as I was, I did not run out and buy some Cherry Garcia. Yet, I know I will this summer. It’s the only ice-cream I ever crave, and when I think about it I see that the chocolate chunks and cherries are shattered shards within the frozen delight. ❤
All this talk about Cherry Garcia sent me speeding to the store for a hit of Ben & Jerry’ s and I didn’t feel guilty, I licked the lid too. ♥️
Mmm, the lid is a golden moment! ❤
It is !!! Sometimes I lick that first. ♥️😊
Perhaps we should save all of the lids and make a mosaic? ❤ 😀
Definitely street art. How very, very, cool.
Yay! All art in the streets and alleys are street art!!!!!!
Very lovely, Resa. ❤️
Agree & thank you, Francina! Hope you are well and happy! 💗🧡❤️
You’re welcome, Resa. All is fine here..hope on your side as well ❤️❤️
These must have taken a long time to create. They’re wonderful. I suppose they hold up well outdoors since they are mosaic tiles and glass. The woman with the umbrella is incredible.
I hadn’t thought of that, but yes, they must hold up quite awhile. I would think the older one is at least 10 years old. Resa 🦄🌹
Patience and determination to create such beautiful images must be what drives them. You always have GREAT finds, Resa.
It’s a good thing I have a lot in the kitty! It’s way too, hot to walk around. It’s cooled down to 90F today. Yesterday was 110F
It has been brutally hot here in Florida. Everyday in the mid 90’s but with the humidity it feel like its over 100. Our climates are changing so much. I’m enjoying the indoors though I miss gardening and swimming in the pool. The pool water has been 89; not exactly the place to cool off. 😄
Wow, 89 in the pool! Yeah, I’ve bee working on some paintings while the HOT weather steams over. Climate is changing. ❤
Impressive mosaics. The lady with umbrella is stunning. Cool camera pic in the mirror too 🙂 There was a huge J. F. Kennedy Memorial mosaic dating back to the 60s in Birmingham UK where I grew up. When the area was redeveloped the mosaic was sadly demolished, but the original artist’s son rescued many of the pieces and they were used as templates to recreate the original which was put up in another part of Birmingham. I saw it last time I visited and was not only taken back in time but pleased that efforts had been made to honour the original. Wikipedia has a good article for those interested.
I will try to find the JFK mural in Wikipedia. That is the kind of art related modern history story I adore.
So happy you like this post! 😀
Resa, they are lovely! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you, Wendell!
Absolutely amazing ❤️🖤💙💛💚💜🧡 excellent! 😘
Yeah, it was neat finding mosaics! ❤️💗💙🧡💓💛💚🖤💜 Luvin’ all these colored hearts!
All of the mosaics are so cool!
Excellent mosaics. What a lot of work !
You must rest more dear Resa as you look really shattered ! 🙄🙀💝 xoxoxo
Yes, fab mosaics & I’m in tatters! Maybe I should drink more wine? 🍷🍷🍷🍷 👍 xoxoxoxo
What a cool self-portrait! I love the mosaics too. Toronto seems to have an endless supply of amazing street art. xoxo
Yes, the city is having a love affair with street art! Unfortunately, it’s sickeningly hot here, and you can’t go for a decent walk to find the art. It was 40C or 110F here yesterday due to humidity. It’s cooled down to 30C or 90F today. I’m inside in the AC working on my Art Gowns paintings. I need 10 by the end of the month, so I can submit to an art show. xoxo
I’m so excited for the art gowns being displayed at an art show! I’m sure they’re squabbling among each other as to who gets to go.
We’re having a heat wave too, and a bit of a drought actually in southern England. xoxo
Squabbling…. you don’t know the half of it! xoxo
I love these Resa. You always find the best things to share with us!
Thank you, Terri! It’s a fulfilling hobby!
Gorgeous mosaic art! Must have taken a lot of time; the creativity around your locality is mind -blowing. You are cool, even in shatters!!!
Hahah! Lol, the shatters are very interesting, and yes, Toronto is in thr midst of a street art love affair!
I remember making mosaics in grammar school. I love your reflection. Cool art!
I remember, too! I love the way I’m all broken up in the mirror shards. I find it poetic.
Really? Yes, you look good all broken up that way. I think your soul is poetic, Resa!!
So happy I looked back and found this post I missed. These are amazing.
