A Mural of My Own!

Look at this gorgeous Monarch with 3 Burners.

Nick Sweetman did the Monarch. He even put a crown on it.

THE MONARCH

From my swing

I spot the Monarch

sipping from a nectary,

gently I snare him

by his dew drenched wings.

I wonder if he knows

his fate lies in my hands.

Clutched between my fingers

imagine how his heart pounds.

19 years ago, there were clouds of Monarchs during migration season. 5 years ago, I did not see even 1 Monarch. So, 4 years ago we planted Milkweed in the back yard. It is the only plant Monarchs lay eggs in.

I’d also heard that they are attracted to their own colours, and colours of the Milkweed. Ours is green and orange. It took until this summer to get the painting organized. I’m pleased to say that I saw about 50- 100 Monarchs this year.

The Burners represent the sky, a sunset and the green earth. By: #tensoe2 #ctr #2hel.

The wall was constantly being tagged. This is what it looked like before the painting.

The best is; since the Burners were painted…not 1 tag!

Cutest Raccoon Ever

OMG! I stumbled upon an entertainment plaza made entirely out of shipping containers.

There’s shops for everything, small kiosks, restaurants and a beer hall+, park areas and more. The place has electricity and all the amenities.

There is art on everything! This project is still not finished.

Love this raccoon. Apparently, Toronto is the world’s Raccoon Capital!

Heading out to look for street art! See y’all later!

4 Gi Metallicat

There was a Metallicat a few blocks from me, but it got painted over.

It was very exciting to find a new 4 Gi Metallicat in Kensington Market.

It’s the year of the butterflies out in the alleys. On my street art safari, I also found birds and faces, but no cats, except for Metallicat.

Maybe next year will be a good street art cat year.

A reflection

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.
