The Gen Z Collective

Look who I found on a wall!

It’s Greta Thunberg, the most famous Gen Z person in the world. In the upper left is the word CURAE. It is Latin for “Take Care”.

Gen Z has a lot to say, and my long time friend, Elizabeth Gracen is providing them a platform to say it all.

Elizabeth, founder of Flapper Films and Flapper Press says in her introduction to the project, “I would create a platform so that they could upload their own videos to the project. The films would stream on Instagram and a YouTube Channel for those little screens they are all obsessed with.”

Is there a Gen Z  person in your family, who has something to say? Then check out The website !

You’ll be hearing more about Flapper Press  On both GLAM and Art Gowns in the future. My next Art Gown will be dedicated to Elizabeth, and I am very excited!

Found in a tiny children’s park.

Me, I’m not a kid, but I am dreaming of some sun, so I can shoot the new Art Gown!

What are you dreaming about?

Wild Life

It’s a sweet, imaginative piece in a parking lot.

I mean, here’s Toronto’s cityscape, CN Tower and all, with a parrot and elephants.

… and a BUNNY!

The wall dints in & out.


Around the final corner is a trapped elk.

At least I caught his reflection.

Not only was he trapped by a car,

… he was imprisoned, which is how I found the painting. I had to find out how to get a better shot of him. That’s when I found the rest!

Mini-Mural Destroyed in 5 Days



I watched the artist paint this mini-mural on a corrugated roll-up door, over a 4 day period.

He was older, not one of the younger artists that I am familiar with.

The butterflies were my faves.

However, I adored all of it.

Flowers, hummingbirds and all round beauty were 1 block away for me to enjoy everyday.

I took pics of it 2 days after it was finished.

4 days after that, I took my niece to see it. It had been destroyed.

Mini-Mural Magic in Little India

It’s old, crumbling and wonderful!

This mini-mural runs along a 2 foot high cement support for a wrought iron fence.

This tiger is the first image. All images are separated by wheels.

As it was ground level, & only 2 feet high, a lot of crouching and hunching was involved in capturing this.

I am presenting these images left to right in order, except for the opening peacock pic. Peacock was the perfect showy piece to open with.

Then, the mini-mural wrapped the corner with elephants.

Now the Peacock.

The lotus was the final image.

The very beginning and very end had these guards.

The Artist is unknown at this time.

This is the front end. I just could not do panos as I went along. My back was not happy with the crouching and hunching, nor were the Sunday strollers.
