"Pathway in Colours" 11 x 14 framed to approx 16 x 20 oil pastel.
This was painted from the same area as the last painting on my blog. I believe it is part of Laurentide Park,
I loved the bright yellow fall leaves and how they hung over the pathway.
This one was painted near home off on Laurentide Drive. Toronto A pathway ran from the street, past the fence and probably down to a raven. The colours were bright and the tree had a lot of character. I enjoyed the area and did 2 paintings
"Park Entrance Guardian" 16x20" oil pastel.
This old Beech Nut tree appeared to be the guardian at the north entrance to Wilket Creek Park. The many twisting branches with the bright orange berries reminded me of red curly hair. The truck seemed to have two sides looking out.
Great ideas for Christmas gifts and Halloween. I have been decorating wooden and paper boxes with new and vintage buttons, bling, butterflies to form original bouquets. My mother has been a button collector for many years and has allowed be to take some for use in my boxes. Most are wooden boxes that are painted and decorated. Most are tea boxes or jewelry boxes that can be used for many different things. All are for sale - pricing ranging from $25 to $45 Cdn each.
Weather permitting, I plan to sell my boxes and some of my jewelry at a Yard/Craft Sale on Hickory St. North, Whitby on Saturday, Oct 26th. Sale starts at 9:00am. Hope to see you there if it doesn't rain. OR YOU CAN CONTACT ME TO BUY DIRECT ON LINE. firstname.lastname@example.org
I spent the day with Pat Vicari painting the countryside east of Markham Road, along Bloomingdale Road. We stopped at a home and got permission to park along the road to take on this view. We were both drawn to the large furrows highlighting the hilly landscape. The pond to the left held at least 50 Canada Geese. The company. the view and the weather were great. Wonderful day of painting.
I attended a beautiful wedding last Saturday. The ceremony was held on top of the Blue Mountain. It was a chilly day but it turned sunny and bright in time for the ceremony. To see moe pictures of the wedding please see = Mendes wedding
