Cat’s Third Eye is a Gem

Found this on a garage door a few blocks from home.

I’d like to hit some other alleys in the city, but I won’t take public transportation to get there and back.

I can do a 3 – 4 hour walk.

A few times I got a ride from N to a place where it’s a 4 hour walk back home.

Fortunately, I have lots of pics stashed!

Revenge of the Egg

This is the 3rd time that the egg outside of the Art Store has been painted over.

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.

Still, an interesting challenge to capture it for us all.

This is a realistic side view of the Egg. Some may remember the first Egg I posted – Egg of Birdo

A car was blocking my ability to go all around the Egg, but the car was black & all clean and shiny. The next 4 reflections are lots of fun.

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!

Marty McFly Disappearing Photo

It’s a Back To The Future thing.

This art appeared on a wall on Queen St. W. just before the parking lot beside it was turfed to build a tall building.

As Marty McFly’s pics disappeared because time erased them. Elicser’s art disappeared, as the building beside this wall went up.

I don’t know if that message is what Elicser had intended. It’s what I saw.

Iona, Tona, Jona… as:

# Women Paint TO


Artist: Bareket

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.

Artist: Rachel Wilmshurst

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!

# Women Paint TO

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.

Artist: Courtney Vera Binns

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.

The above piece and all of Alley 18 posts can be linked to from the “Smart Strong United” pic on my sidebar.

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!
