In 2016, when my son came to visit us from London we took a trip to the Aga Khan Museum in the east end of Toronto. There were lots of beautiful Persian artifacts and many of them were circular so this post features two themes from past squares.
For this challenge not all the squares have to be photos taken in the past but they should incorporate one of the 12 themes from years past. Today I’ve found a couple of photos with light in the word or phrase.
This month Becky is opening up October Square to any of the themes from the last four years. Today I’m choosing lines. On my recent trip to the McMichael Art Gallery in Kleinburg I was introduced to an artist that is new to me. Her name is Denyse Thomasos (1964–2012). She was a Trinidadian-Canadian artist whose epic paintings incorporate imagery from a range of sources, including Caribbean textiles, historic slave ships, industrial shipyards, graveyards, villages and maximum security prisons.
Some trees were meant to be climbed. This might come as a surprise to some of my former students because I was always the teacher that made them get out of the trees that grew on the school property. Of course that was more of a liability thing and images of my younger sister falling from a tree and biting through her tongue is a memory that never goes away. Luckily for her some of her teeth hadn’t come through yet so her tongue stayed in place but she did need stitches.
