Last Friday I went to Creemore with my friend Pat V and my great niece Alysha. We spent the afternoon painting outside of St. Lucas Church. A beautiful old church with stain glass windows imported from England and an beautiful old pipe orgran. I was fortunate to be invited inside to see how beautiful it was. I painted the front entrance of the church. Pat painted a garden at the back corner. Alysha painted the front and also an old bench in the back garden.
It was a beautiful day. The scenery was wonderful during our journey and Creemore was a lovely little town.
This slideshow is a collection of some of the sculptures we found.
My favourite were the children playing around a water fountain.
July paintings - Uxbridge, Burlington, Terra Cotta, Belfountain, Sunnybrook Park, Ward's Island, and Toronto
I went to Sunnybrook Park yesterday with Patty to sketch the horses. After a short while, we stopped at Toronto Botanical Gardens / Edwards Gardens to check out the flowers in bloom. These were all taken by the parking lo
This slideshow is with pictures taken at the Oshawa Botanical Gardens on my birthday. The gardens have a large selection of Peonies. Most were still in the bud stage but there were enough in bloom to give a beautiful show. Next week, during their Peony Festival, the Peonies should be in full bloom. One of most favourite flowers. Please enjoy my slide show below.
So happy I am back into painting again. These were done within the past week as well as some portraits of fellow members at the club last Sunday. Feels great to be back into painting.
Stopped for a quick visit to Toronto Botanical Gardens / Edwards Gardens, Toronto, this morning with my friend Patty.
I didn't expect much buti I was delightful surprised and treated to a great show of brightly coloured tulips and a few other spring specials, all just near the parking area.
I had been to High Park last Saturday but was disappointed with the scarcity of remaining blooms on the Sakuri, Japanese Cherry Blossoms. There were many people there expecting the glorious blooms. This time most of them seem to be more interested in the large Mangnolia tree in blossom.
The very colourful show at Leslie and Eglinton Avenue would help to brighten anyones day. Enjoy my little slideshow of photos I took today.
This is another painting in my series of dancers in motion. The paintings are inspired by attending dance recitals that my great niece, Alysha, dances in. Alysha loves dancing and has been learning many types of dance techniques at "Traditions Academy of Dance" in Whitby, On. r They have an annual recital that Alysha has the opportunity to perform on stage.
The dancers at the recitals and competitions are beautifully dressed, at many different levels, and all trying hard to show their best dance. The colours are bright, the motions are swift and flowing.
I have been attempting to be more free and abstract with my paintings. On these paintings I use Sennelier oil pastels and tried to capture the feelings, movements and flow of the dancers, instead of concentrating on details and photo realism. I won a Special Merit - juror's award for this one.
There are more of these paintings shown on my blog further below on this blog.
The ice storm that hit southern Ontario late Dec 21-22, 2013. It caused widespread power, water, telephone and cable loss. Everything exposed was covered with a thick layer of ice. Everythng shut down. Very many trees lost huge branches from the weight of the ice. Heavy fallen branches caused many problems and obstacles. I was out of power, heat and telephone, for aproximately 55 hours, cable- not sure and later water. The temperatures outdoors ranged from 0*C to minus 14*C. as well as happening during the shortest days of the year, Power was restored in our area about 6:30 a,m, Dec 24. It took a friend and I approx. 5 hours to clear my car from the ice. It was too cold and windy to stay out for long periods. Left for Whitby early Christmas morning, returning home today to find all restored here.
