A Big Thank You to Jean Marc Robert for sending in these pics from Montreal!
“The first one (Woman in purple, some yellow in the background is at the intersection of Hope and Sussex street, a bit north of René Lévesques and east of Atwater.”
“The second one, woman and child on a bench overlooked by business suit man with robot head is I think….on St-Mathieu street between Tupper and Ste Catherine.”
“The third one, is quite beautiful. I was told by a delivery man from UPS that it is quite recent. He notices & likes murals, and told me of the Leonard Cohen mural just north of this one. This is on Crescent street between Ste Catherine and de Maisonneuve.”
“I was on the sidewalk, and it was difficult to photograph. I did not notice the perspective in the mural. When shot, so we don’t see the alley, it was almost as though it was just another building. Ok not quite like that, but I thought it integrated well with the surrounding, not the same style but seems to be part of it.”

My thanks, too JMR and Resa.
Welcome to you! 🤗
Those are lovely finds.
Agree! It was kind of JMR to send them in!
These are beautiful paintings.
I totally agree!
I particularly like the header mural.
It seems that is a fave. I like the purple lady best. That’s the beauty of art. It’s personal to each individual. 🎨❦
Yes! I like to approach art with gut reaction first, then reflect on why I responded to the piece in that particuar way.
Oh, Resa, you have a wonderful source of mural photos from JM. These are all beautiful. The purple woman is someone to fall in love with, isn’t she? And the ominous robot man reminds me of life in the US. My fav, I think, is the wonderful street scene. I get such a kick out of the ones that play with my perception and make me dizzy! Lol. Thanks, Jean Marc, for sharing with Resa, and by extension, with all of us.
LOVE the purple woman!
Robot big brother…..????
Jean Marc is a gem for sending these in. Have you seen his art? His style is breathtaking.
I have seen his work on his blog. The portfolio by year is a great browse. He’s a wonderful source of murals too. Another part of Canada showing up on your blog. I heard Rebecca say that Vancouver’s festival is soon. 🙂
All three are great, and I think the first is my favorite, but the perspective on the third is very cool. Almost the right spot in the middle photo.
The first is my fave, too. However, all arts tend to be subjective.
Seems most everyone has a fave. Many like the last one.
Happy you got to see this.
On another note, I looked up some sheet music. I want to incorporate it actually into some Art Gowns drawings….gowns made partially out of written music.
Not sure why, but I think you can read music? If so you would get the song immediately.
Well, let’s see if I can pull it off!
Yep, I read music, so when you post it I will have to see if I can figure out what you posted.
Pfft.. I know you will! Hey, I need to get to my Art Gowns blog. I’m working on a post with the amazingly talented Charlotte Hoather. So, I will visit you from there. Also, I have the email connected to this comment. If I may, I would like to send you a drawing with the first 2 bars of the music notation. My N says – how do you know this is the music for that song? He’s right. I got it on line, where everything should be checked up on.
Charlotte is great – her’s was one of the first blogs I started following many years ago.
If you send me an email, send it to trent -at- trentsworld -dot- com. I do go through the other, but so much junk comes in that I miss a lot.
Fabulous street art, Resa! I can see that Montreal, like Toronto, is a great city for murals!
Yes… I’m quite envious! Lol!
I know it’s not a competition. Once I get out of my hood… maybe not soon, as masks are optional on the TTC, I’ll really be able to capture some great art. Fortunately I live in a not so good area of the city, wherein street art flourishes.
Great street art in your area of the city does sound like a great silver lining, Resa!
Yes… yes, it is a silver lining. Thank you, Dave!
These are mural treasures indeed JMR and Resa. I especially appreciate JMR’s way of capturing murals – the positioning of the lens is flawless and captures the spirit that the artist intended. Spectacular.
I agree about JMR’s photography.
He’s threatened to go out and find more!
YAY! Well, we will see. It’s always a big treat when someone sends in street art or a mural!
Spectacular is a perfect word for many of the murals in Montreal!
Those were amazing. The last one of the laundry and building was incredible. Just fabulous.
I’m so happy JMR sent these in to me! He’s a gem. Have you seen his art? His style is unique. It takes him forever to finish a painting. However, once he does ….. WOW!
Thanks Resa, and for taking long time to finish, it is probably chronic…:)
It’s because of your feelings. I think you love them. When you are finished, they leave home, in a sense. You want them with you.
Yes, that’s sense quite right and I feel it can always be better…sometimes we have to let go it seems…
These are all captivating. Happy weekend, Resa.
Happy weekend Janet!
OMG…I just freed you from my SPAM prison! Eek! It’s nuts who ends up in there. Good thing I check regularly! xx
I had 222 spams yesterday after not checking for a few days. Sigh. I don’t think there were any legit comments there. I don’t think so, but can’t check each one of that woman’s. Sigh. Thanks for freeing me. 😁
No sweat! Being in someone’s SPAM can really disrupt the blogging experience. It catches on in the Askimet filter. I’ve had to have WP get me out of messes a coupe of times.
Anyway, I’ll be by tomorrow! xo
Enjoy the weekend!
❤️ the purple woman
She’s beautiful xxxx
xxxjust like you!
Too kind my darlingCan hardly believe that this is street art. It is so amazing.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Hi Resa, these murals are getting so unbelievably realistic I do wonder if people sometime get confused and walk into the artworks by accident. These are getting to the standard of the great Matte Painting artists like Albert Whitlock who worked with Hitchcock and painted matte scenes for films such as “The Birds” and the more impressive docklands area paintings from “Marnie”. Thanks to you and JMR once more for the share.
Thank you Resa for showing them, nice presentation, thanks, and yes it does take me forever to complete a painting, cannot argue with that…:D
I am working on the one now…you know the one..with 3 models…:D
Sounds good! xo
I will send you something by email in a few days, I may need some advice or know your thinking about it…:)
Okay! I look forward! X
Some very clever artists out there!
wow, the first one!
These are beautiful, I especially love the wall art on Crescent street between Ste Catherine and de Maisonneuve. It’s amazing. Thank you dear Resa and a big thank you to JMR as well.
It’s a fab mural! Montreal is rich with murals. I’m thrilled JM sent me these. Maybe he’ll send more? xoxoxo
Thank you both, will try to go out hunting for more of those murals…:)
I hope so! xoxoxo
You haven’t true beauty until you’ve witnessed Bolton of Greater Manchester on a rainy day.
Sounds fabulous, a rainy night in Manchester just rings a bell.
A bell, eh? Bring your own cos we ain’t got any! 🔔
What happened to your bells? Did they turn into whistles?
They got turned into lapels.
No bells?! Umbrellas? I’m shipping some over, that’s just too sad.
Don’t do that. We’ll just melt it down and turn it into pie.
Those are splendid! Enjoy your Sunday dear Resa.
Oh, wow, beautiful murals, thank you Jean Marc and Resa!
I’m thrilled JMR sent these in. It’s been awhile since I’ve had a submission. Now, he has sent 2.
Great murals!!!! That’s so nice of him!!
Yes! I am quite happy!
I know I’ve done that line before. It just deserves repeating, dammit!
Those are stunning murals! Thank you for sharing. They are really gorgeous.
I agree, and I especially like the first one.
It’s wonderful of JMR to send them in.
Wow! How can I not have seen any of them? I really need to go walking about Montreal more often, apparently! Thank you Jean-Marc and Resa for sharing his pics!
Ah, I was wondering if you knew these. I’ve had other submissions from Montreal, but not recently until the ones from JMR. Lotsa art where you live. ⚡️💥
Nope… but I am taking this as a challenge to go and capture some for you, Miss Sorceress!! 👸✨
WOW X3. Thanks for sharing special things like these.
When a mural goes museum quality, the neighborhood’s aesthetic property value goes through the roof!
Interesting! Although things are so crazy right now in Toronto, the average home price is $1,044,138. You can get a fixer upper semi for $800,000.00.
I’m drowning in tv shows.
I’ve got to get to my Art Gowns blog, so I’ll visit you from there. I want to catch you up on my EMMY stuff! xxoo
Wow, that’s nuts!
Hey, I watched the first episode of Tokyo Vice and I really like it. Thank you for the 411 on that one chica. 😉
The latest mural makes me think of tradtional houses of Montreal, Resa, with the stairs outside . We can thank Jean Marc Robert.
JMR is a gem to have sent these in. I adore these murals and the houses they are on! xoxo Love Resa
I had a friend from Montreal . In his blog he spoke of the special features of Montreal .
Great collection from Montreal! I had to look twice to see the businessman with robot head as I was only focusing on the two people on the bench.

Quite beautiful. I really must go and spend some time in Canada…
Such lovely colours, would love to gaze at all these murals in the noon-light.
Agree!It’s wonderful to see them for real!
These pictures are beautiful!
This is the third time I’m visiting this post. I visited twice from my iPad but I couldn’t leave a comment. I really liked this street art and wanted to drop you a note to that effect.
Thank you Roberta! It’s fab art. Montreal has a reputation for its fabulous murals.
