L’Italia

The cat is my fave element of this wall art.

The cat lives in an alley, in a piece of alley art, somewhere in Little Italy.

Sam The Record Man is part of Toronto’s history.

So are the many delicious Italian restaurants that grace our city. As a vegetarian, I’m always guaranteed a yummy meal, at an Italian restaurant. Okay, I’m a pasta junkie, but the ultimate is Fiori di Zucca.

It is zucchini flowers tossed in flour, and flash fried. This is the one I love. Some are stuffed with ricotta & mint or bocconcini & dipped in a batter. There are many variations. A generous squeeze of lemon, on the crispy delights, is a must.

Best Monsters, Ever!

I wouldn’t light a cigarette around this guy!

He just might extinguish you with some kind of fire breath.

He’s totally into the trash! Very tasty.

His pal lives around the corner.

He has bad breath.

It is a phenomenal piece.

St. Clair Gardens – pt.1

In a grubby alley is painted a gorgeous garden.

I’m working left to right through the alley.

The Artists:

Not sure how Mike Kennedy passed, but he was young. You’ve seen many of his collaborative projects on this blog. The artists did a wonderful tribute painting to his memory.I will post that in the future.


Perhaps he felt my joy taking these pics, and sent a ray of shine. It’s been very grey and dark since late December.

 

Luv Mural in Progress

This has to be very new. It’s in the alley close to home, and I walk by often.

It says Mural In Progress.

I’m thinking that Luv Sumone hasn’t had time to finish it, and the taggers can’t control themselves.

As you can see the alley is a taggers heaven.

I’ll be watching this one!

Another accidental double exposure. I will figure out how to do them intentionally, I hope!
