Found this in a small underpass.
The colours are gorgeous. Here’s the east side.
It is very different from any other native street art I have found.
There are a lot of faces on the west side.
The faces are in organic things, like tree trunks.

The vibrant colours light up the underpass. You find the best places to find treasure.
IKR! I just love walking for hours, and finding what I can find! Oh.. I can hardly wait for restrictions to be eased! I heard about a giant fence on a street about 40 minutes north (by TTC). Then I could walk back part way.
There are 30 murals on it. Runs almost a mile!!
I love this combination of nature and faces in nature and such vibrant colors. Very fairy-tale-ish. What a unique and satisfying find!
You are right! It is a very wonderful piece to have found.
It seems many really like this one! 🌳⭐️
I like a lot of the street art you post, but this has to be my favorite.
It is a wonderful mural. It is very unique, and the colours are so rich, even as it is several years old.
Wow! Those murals are beautiful. Wild and colorful.
Yes…. wild like the wilderness they depict.
Good description, Tim!
Wow, they really brighten up (I imagine) what must be otherwise quite a dark space.
I just love the hidden faces. They remind me of a wallpaper I had many years past. Every time I looked at it I could see ‘little faces’ in the trees. This was really the knots in the tree trunks, and the dappled light filtering through the curtained windows… Hahah.. so cute! As are these, Resa; so cute!
It is a totally enchanting underpass!
The colours, the rendition and feeling.
Your old wall paper sounds lovely, just like your tree knot dappled imagination!
❤ ❤ ❤
This is gorgeous. Absolutely beautiful. I’m going to reblog it, so more people can see it. 🙂 Hope the raccoons are making you crazy. Love to J & J

Picasso! With more color.
Okay! I get that, in a way. ❦
A one dimensional south sea island paradise? As ever, splendid young Resa. Regards, TOF
Thank you, TOF! Yes, it is gorgeous.
I took the pics in January, before confinement.
I’m dying to get out for a decent art search walk. Looks like 2 more weeks before that happens.
Okay, my creativity is scattered, but it’s still here! Chipping away at my projects.
How are you holding out?
Oh, Resa this is WONDERFUL! I love it so much!!!!! What a great find!!!!!! I’d be going back and forth that underpass all the time!
I’ve been there twice. There is even a bench in the underpass, so one can sit and enjoy.
It is beautiful!
Hey, have you guys heard of a band called “Daft Punk”?
If so, do you have a fave song?
Good thinking adding a bench there!!!! 😉
Yes, we have. Good band and lots of songs… off hand, Veridis Quo – Technologic – Revolution 909… there’s another French band [even better imho] Air. If you haven’t heard them, I know you’ll enjoy. Oannes might be doing a Daft Punk / Air / etc podcast…. 😉
Beautiful work, like a fairytale or a fantasy land, and the faces are a treat to find.
It reminds me of stained glass windows art. Thanks for sharing :)x
I can see the stained glass component. Good thought!
I’m glad you got to see it, as it is gorgeous!
Hope you are well!
Simply love these colors!

Hello Resa, this is like a massive version of Where’s Wally or in this case Find-A–Face. It’s fantastic but I have to say on first view of the full width west side picture it looked as if there was a head/face with wide eyes and gasping mouth poking out above the river with two arms. Then I realised there were four “arms” so it turned into an Octopus then upon a final look I realised it was a fallen tree with four branches, the bark just appeared to have a face. I love optical illusions! Thanks for sharing.
I’m in love the tropical ambiance of this art. The intricate and deep illusion of an Amazon forest is awesome. A fabulous artist and amazing photographer. Thank you Resa. I wouldn’t mind being a jeweled snake 🐍 slithering among those beautiful leaves. xoxo
I love this too. It really is different. Ah, a jewelled snake would look great!
You are already a jewel, though. Maybe you could just smatter yourself about reading your emerald poetry by the brook and under the trees! xoxox
I wish we could wander, chameleons, unnoticed deep into the forest and creatures of the paradise! 🐢🐍🦋🦄🌴🐲🏜💎🔮
Okay! I’ll do it with you!
Art Gowns: The Forest Collection…. Oh and I want to do … The Floral Collection!
First to deal with Evilomlap!
We can be very quiet other than ooh’s and ahh’s at all the beauty. They’ll get used to us after awhile and we’ll fit right in. ❤️🤗
I’ll start designing fauna coloured fairy gowns for us. xoxo
This wall art has opened up a whole new vision of gowns hasn’t it? I can see the models now. Sigh, fabulous! Xoxoxo
YES & YAY!!! xoxoxoX
I know, it’s exciting!! xo ❤️🌺
Evilomlap needs taking care of. The girls need to get busy! 😊❤️🌺🌸
😊❤️🌺🌸PBH is on the job!
Always ready to confront the bad guys! He. He. 🦋🤗❤️

There’s a ping back at House of Heart…don’t see it here though. ❤
I’ll look for it, Here! ❤
I found it! it wanted comment approval! On my, better check SPAM… I see 3 in there!
xoxo ❤ xoxo
Ok. Going there. I thought it didn’t work so I reblogged it. I think this is one of the most magical and exotic Wall arts yet. Great shots Resa! Love love love this! xoxo
Thank you, Holly! You are so sweet! It really is a vibrant, beautiful and unique piece! Love, love, love you!
I heard about a wall, runs about a mile, and there are 30 murals on it!
I can hardly wait for restrictions to be eased! xoxo
I can hardly wait for you to get to the mile long wall, do be safe though. It will be there a long time! I love this selection soooo much and I love you too ! 🦋🐍💎
Back at ya! 🦋🦄💎🔮
I won’t go there until it’s safe to ride the TTC, again.
They’ve kept it running for essential workers, but the rest of us are only allowed to go out for food once a week.
Ok! It’ll happen. Soon I hope!
Yeah! Maybe some restrictions relaxed on May 12, I hear! xo
Oh! I’m so glad your numbers are looking much better up there. Sending love and hugs.
Love and hugs back at ya!
I don’t think we will feel totally free until a treatment and a vaccine are found.
I’m okay with partly free, so I can go on my walks, wearing a mask!
Exactly, I am praying for a vaccine sooner than later. Wear a mask for sure,I know you will. Walking is good!🦶🦶 🦶🦶 I make myself laugh. xo
Walking is great, but THEY would rather I/WE stay at home, for now.
The mask tickles you?
Hey you have 4 right feet! xo
Haha! That’s you and me taking a walk with the required distance. We’re not perfect feet wise. Lolol!
No, but we can hop if we have to! hahahaha
Don’t forget Boogapony Boots….they are good for hopping! Visual….lol!
… and kicking butt!
Especially kicking butt!
Just a thought, we could test all new fighting techniques on ‘Oron!
Oh! Fab idea. I’m sure he won’t mind. Me first.
Reblogged this on House of Heart.
Thank you, dear Holly!
It looks gorgeous on your theme! xoxoxoxo
It really does. Gosh, this is a gorgeous art work!! xoxoxo
eieeeee! That’s a PBH war cry 🦋
Let’s go with it!
The bad guys know fear when they hear our ear cry. ❤️
I’m gonna write it into the next episode!
The fight is up!
They can’t withstand the ear cry!
Their ears bleed!
Those bloody ears, and Rosso hasn’t even sung yet.
Lol! Yes, the ears will bleed.
Hahahaha RR sings and ears bleed.
Okay, just kidding…it will be the battle cry!
EIEEEE… is that it? OR?
Thats it, no swinging through the jungle though , this wall art makes it tempting !
No swinging!! We are not George of the Jungle.
However…. singing in the jungle could work!
I would suggest we bring Rosso but that’s beneath her dignity…maybe after a couple of glasses of Merlot ..big glasses.
I was thinking katana.
Yes, I think that could get him on the run and no violence would have to actually take place, or we can turn Rosso on him…agh.
Maybe she can hit that high note that shatters glass?
She still has the touch, bring ear protection.
LOl! Will do! xoxoxoxo
hahaha! RR rocks. xoxoxoxo
Yes, yes she does, in a Torchy way!
She loves her Torche songs and dark cafes. She’s a siren 🚨
The most beautiful siren…..EVER!!!! 🌹🎼
Is that a siren emoji? LOL!
Not sure. She’s lounging in her dressing room dreaming of her next art gown and torch song. 💃
I don’t blame her!
There’s no music nights! I’m having a hard time drawing to canned music! I’ve been so spoiled.
Anyway, the new Art Gown is in the beginning of the thick, so that is coming along.
I know I’ll get my drawing mojo back up and running! Getting used to the new abnormal, and now I’ve got glass or something in one of my big toes. It’s driving me nuts. It’s like I have Tovid! xoxo
No! You have glass in your toe? I feel your pain.
Shivers! Google Healthline and they will guide you though the removal with sanitized tweezers and a sharp needle, alcohol and antibiotic ointment. Oh I’m really feeling your pain, I’m a big old empath! xoxoxo
It’s 50% better today… I think. I think it was a tiny piece and it got crushed from walking on it. I got some out. Will try again after soaking my foot, today!
Good, I’m glad its better and coming out. xo
War cry lol!
Ear cry works in a way, tho!
Most things work for us, 🙂
Or should I say Hear, Ear! 😀
You must say that in the story….dying laughing!
Those colors are so . . . WOW!
This was a real gem of a mural Resa. You have a fantastic eye for detail and a wonderfully unique art form. I would find myself in trouble for loitering if I found that on my way somewhere. Thankfully, You allow loitering and I can take it all in without worry.
Aww, thank you! Yes, it is a brilliant work of art! They allow loitering in the underpass! They put a bench there, although, I’ve never seen anyone using it.
Crazy, but I believe many people don’t see street art. Sometimes I’ll be taking pics of the art, and someone notices. They wonder what I’m taking pics of…. a wall? Then they look and do double and triple takes. A big asp mural, and they never notice it.
You can loiter here all you want!
I actually find that amazing how people can be so into their thoughts they don’t notice their surroundings. I’m always scanning everything and seeing the beauty of small and simple things and overwhelmed by grand vistas. It’s the INFJ life. I suppose that is why I admire the beauty you share with all the many talents you have. I’m that guy you have to ask to move so you can get picture. 😍
LOL…well I would have no compunctions asking you to move!
Unless you’re over 7 ft tall, carrying a bat and acting like you are the owner of said mural.
Just trying to be funny in this unfunny time!
I’ll be by soon. I’m very slow blogging these days, but some of that is because I am making headway with my new Art Gown. 🥰🥰
Can’t wait to see your new art gown 😍. I’m always reminded of the grand gowns of past era’s with a mythical magical twist. You will be happy to know, I’m a mere 6 foot tall and don’t own any baseball bats. Although I did recently discuss investing in bear spray to enforce social distancing and to discourage bad people from taking my wallet. We like bear spray over guns or other weapons. With bear spray a person will live a very spicy life for a day or two and they can rethink their life decisions. With guns, not so much.
wonderful and inspirational.
How beautiful, colorful and complex! I can imagine that one can spend a lot of time looking at every detail of this fine piece of streetart.
It is a joy to be at the art, and looking at it! So happy you got to see it!
You stay safe, too!
You’re right, Resa, the colors are gorgeous and the artwork clever with faces in the tree trunks. What talent, skill, and thoughtfulness it took of the artist to beautify the underpass. Another wonderful find and beautiful photos. xo
Thank you, Lauren! It is a beautiful piece!
I’m heading over to your blog, as soon as I catch up on mine! It seems like I’ve turned my blogging into bogging! LOL! xo
Too funny and thanks for hopping over to mine. ❤😍
My pleasure, followed you!
Resa, luv! OMG! These are exquisite! I think what the artist is portraying is the actual essence and spirit of Mother! That is my interpretation as I perused these phenomenal pieces of art. Thank you SO much for taking the time from your sewing to publish this post. Much love to you! xo
Your thoughts sound right to me.
It is a phenomenal piece of art.
So, the new Art Gown is finally coming along. When this whole C-19 stay at home thing happened, my creative energy was thrown off.
It’s come back, somewhat, and the Zen of hand sewing is soothing.
I really need to get out for some walks. Soon, I hope. They are looking a relaxing things up here around May 12. Love back to you! xo
You have piqued my curiosity. Are you not allowed to be outside in Toronto, Resa? OMG! I would have lost it if I have not been going for my walks and getting out to the forest. The air is SO fresh and clean and is SO good for you. I’m shocked to hear you haven’t been out. Love!! xo
We are only allowed out to go to the grocery store, pharmacy or some hardware stores, if we have “urgent” home repairs. We are supposed to keep that to once a week at the most. We may only shop singly. Couples and families not allowed.
You can go for a walk in your neighbourhood for exercise, or a bike ride. Again, better if we exercise at home, or in your yard, if you have one.
There is a beach on Lake Ontario across the footbridge from me. There is a bike path there, but it is now overcrowded.
No sitting around the beach with friends. You’ll get a $500.00 ticket.
So, yes, basically we are isolating. Of course medical workers, and other front liners are allowed to go to work.
It’s going to be at least 2 more weeks before I will be allowed to go for a decent walk to look for art.
I’ll have to go out on Wednesday. It is emotionally draining to see most everything closed, Covid signs everywhere, people lined up 2 m apart waiting to get into the store for food, almost everyone wearing face masks, coming home means disrobing in the hallway(all clothing into the washer & me into the shower. All products I bought are then washed down, or left in my “special corner in the hallway” for days until the virus is not active anymore.
Love back to you, dear Amy! xoxo
Resa! I feel so badly for you. I would never be able to live in a city and to know what you are going through tugs strongly at my heart. If I did not have my parks I do and to be able to walk about as I do, I would not be able to keep it together. I am so so grateful I am able to go where I go.
This world is so surreal that I in no way can relate. I shake my head as shock waves still course through me when I see people walking with masks on their faces. I do not wear a mask. I do not strip at the door. Yes I keep my distance away from people and I am very aware from what direction the wind is blowing from. I refuse to go into fear and I refuse with my whole being to even for one nano second believe I will not remain strong and healthy. My husband does the shopping and the errands and for this I am SO grateful. Yes he does wear a mask that he has made. I go nowhere except my parks.
I received a huge shock when I saw the sign on my GP’s door that her office is closed until further notice. I never was notified and boy did I feel angry that the very person I am supposed to depend on has withdrawn. Believe you me, I have no trust in this doctor any longer!
I will keep you in my heart and prayers and hope that this isolation and some of the insanity disappears soon. Stay strong and keep busy ….. I can by no means imagine what it must be like to be housebound for so long. Sending my love to you and big (((HUGS)))!! xo
Wow, Sorceress! Did you ever find a gorgeous piece. The colours, the vibrance, the imagery… This is sensational!
It’s like Thunder, it’s so fab!
I agree, it is sensational. I took these the second time I went there. The first time someone had plastered racist propaganda over some of it. Broke my heart.
However, the artist, or someone cleaned it up. Happiness!
You wild thing, you!
So glad someone cleaned up the racist crap. Why people feel the need to sully beauty is beyond me.
Maybe because they are ugly, inside?
Yes. Definitely. 😦
Outstanding, Resa! ❤❤❤
It really is!
The colors are wonderful
I totally agree, Chris!
These are such wonderful images. So vibrant and colorful–but also displaying quirks and personality. Thank you for sharing!
Agree! I think this is a special mural!
Ooo… Resa you find the most gorgeous murals. These are particularly beautiful. I love the colors and the style. The black lines remind me of “continuous line drawing” which I rarely see. These are a treasure. Thanks so much for doing the closeups and for posting everything. Hugs on the wing!
Thank you, Teagan! It truly is a gorgeous piece of art.
It’s a joy to find and post these works of street art! I can hardly wait to be able to go scouting again.
Be well, Pyjamas of Cats!
A wonderful mix of colors and life. A gem!!
It truly is a gem! Glad you got to see it!
So beautiful. I love the rich jewel tones. Thanks for sharing!
Agree, and you are welcome! It is a beautiful mural!
All the colors vibrant in such a way that brings about embrace in the art community and in our heart and souls. 🙂
You always capture the best graffiti art. 🙂
Beautiful comment, Charlie!
I’m lucky to live in a city that embraces street art, big time!
😀 Hey! Have you ever heard of a band “Daft Punk”?
You are welcome, Resa.
Street art is the best. Just like street art poetry. 🙂
Of course I’ve heard of ‘Daft Punk’. Why? You are a fan?
Not really, but I found a piece of art of Frida Kahlo, and Daft Punk is across her chest.
I can’t figure why. There is no restaurant or club there… just this image.
I listened to some of their music, but mmmm.. not my bag. Perhaps they have a great song, or a song about her? I just can’t figure it.
Do you have a song of theirs you like?
Other than their hit classics. Around the world, or one more time and others…can’t remember but if I hear it I know I’ll enjoy it.
Hmmm…that is interesting. How have you been doing?
I’m good! Actually I’m over on your blog. So, is there 10 anagrams in your prose? Am I catching that right?
How are you?
Yes, 10 anagrams and only one guy cracked the first opening. 9 more to go. 🙂 It’s quite easy this time around. 🙂
more than 1 word can make a word?
Or 1 word can make 1 word?
Or 2 or 3 words can make 2 words?
1 word can make word. Yes. I have a way to help out with a good hint. Trust me.
Will this happen over more posts? OR is this the only post?
Only this post. It’s the last one. It was only 3 post. I just wanted to experiment for a while. This Wednesday I got back to posting just a regular fun experimental cut up. 🙂
Okay! Well, don’t spill the beans on the answers right away. I think people need time.
Well, I sur do, LOL!
I’m still looking at your words! 😀
Here’s an example of what I told the first reader.
(Mere pi amide) right?
Everything will be in lowercase expect for 2 phrase that will stand out as capital first letter.
‘Mere pi amide’?
sometimes I visualize what it would be like to be in a movie based on what Empire motive did the snake band endured during the collapse of clay animation and the hideous Media that allows its business to run amok.
P.S I unveiled what the whole poem means: Stop by to read the long comments I left with the other readers. It will make sense. See you there.
Resa, I found this art so rich and full of hidden gems… What a find… I am always in awe of these artists whose talents often are not always fully appreciated.. Oh and I saw I am somehow not following you … Strange as I have not unsubscribed… So hence the refollow…
Anyhow Resa… I love the fluid lines and the eyes and faces… So much to see..
Thank you for sharing these amazing finds of art… That we would never know exists without your snap-shots of them…
Much love and stay blessed my friend 🙂 🙏💖
This is a very rich tapestry of colours! I adore this piece!
No worries about the Follow thing. It happens to me, too. I think it’s one of those WP glitches.
I have to refollow time to time.
Sometimes it says I’m not following someone, if I load a different post, the follow lights up. Go figure! 😀 xoxo
I was admiring this earlier this afternoon on Holly’s b log. It is magnificent. I think it would have to be one of my favorites that you have post. It had a little pyschadelic feel to it, especially aroujnd the moose.
It is a bit of a psychedelic feel, native style.
Sorry for the late reply, and sluggish visits. I’ve been sewing, ya know!! 😀
Have always liked the colour green
It’s the colour of healing!!!
I like green, too, a lot!
I have turtle love, too. And faces-in-trees love. What great art.
Truly a beautiful piece!
Funny thing, Brenda. I got an email from Sath today. I gotta send you the pic!
Awesome! I love his work.
Me too, and his baby Lila is sooo cute!
I’ll send you a pic when I get back to my email!
Can’t wait to see the email. Have a wonderful day.
I love that the faces are incorporated in nature! After all, nature makes us happy so this makes sense! PS I think nature is loving that we’re all in home isolation lately ~ She is doing amazing!
Wow. These are just great. What colors!
IKR!! This one is a unique beauty.
What a beautiful thing… to capture street masterpieces like this and share them, so that streets across the world might be inspired to create their own.
What a beautiful site you have here.
Thank you! Art is for all, even people with no money. When it’s in the streets, we all win.
Reblogging this to my readers at sister site Poetic Justice
It’s my pleasure! 😊
