In Little Italy, an artist has painted welcome rugs right on the sidewalk.
They are mandala – like.
She explains her concept at the end of the post.
I adore these painted rugs!

It’s been 55 years since this fight.
I don’t even know who won?
I figure it was Ali.
I just looked it up! It was Ali.
“He’s the toughest guy I ever fought”, said Ali of Chuvalo after the fight.

Legends never die. In Toronto they become street art.
This sweet mural by Nick Sweetman, is an awareness tribute,
… to some of the most important pollinators on our planet.
The mural turns 3 corners. I will do my best to show it left to right. The above shot was taken from across the street. Cars, vans, trucks and busses dominated 19 of the 20 shots I took.
I did a sideways pano for the above pic.
.. and I grabbed a couple of window reflection shots.

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
The Egg is oval. However, when I used the Pano setting on my IPhone, it came out round. Go figure!
The top of the Egg was higher than me, and hard to capture. The Egg is about 6 feet tall. (1.83 M). The sun was high up, glaring upon the top of the Egg.
This is a realistic side view of the Egg. Some may remember the first Egg I posted – Egg of Birdo

I’m partial to Eggs. I don’t eat them, but I do an interpretive dance called “The Egg Dance”. It was performed last at The Chicklets’ Poetry Party in April. Click on the pice to enjoy an encore performance!
Jean-Marc has been posting some fabulous pieces from his life drawing studies.
Each sketch is from a different post. Each post features several drawings.
Click on each or any pic, and be transported to the post it is in.
A very pleasant experience, all in all!
⭐️ Many Thanks to Jean-Marc Robert⭐️

STRONG SMART UNITED
In this post I will highlight the last 5 smaller pieces, and the alley itself in segments. “Strong Smart United” begins the east end of the alley at Lansdowne.
The paintings then turn a corner, into a parking area with fire escape and a one car garage. All of the 18 works of art, except 1 piece, are on walls on the south side of the alley.
I used my Pano setting to get amap of the atmosphere into 1 shot. This pic should show 6 pieces, but the garage door is open, and there is a piece on that. All of the Pano shots blow up nicely if you click on them.
Here, the garage door is down.
Now there’s a vehicle parked in front of the garage door, and as we come out of the parking indent, we see another 3 works along the alley’s walls. If you squint, or blow up the pic, you can see more art further down.
I adore this alley! 18 works of art, done by 20 women!
Another parking indent, 2 more pieces on a fence and a single on the side of a building. On the right is the one work on the other side.
Kurly Girlz are the alley wall of the last piece by Courtney Binns, which is on the side. One just needs to look around the corner. Here I am near the west end of the alley looking to the east.
There is one more piece behind me, but it is further along, detached a bit from the rest. It is set into a boarded up window surrounded by 4 year old works, all done by some very cool guys.

New Artists: In order as they appear in this post
Artist: Bareket says “I’m filled with love from this weekend at #WomenPaintTO. It was a privilege to paint alongside 19 incredibly talented, kind and supportive artists.”
And I’m filled with love for all of these sisters, who I don’t know.
I dedicated this post to them, and to all the women who follow this blog. #Women Write Paint Photograph & Create WordPress!
