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.
