Past Squares of Flowers

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Past Squares

When I found out that Flowers was the first theme way back in October 2017 I went back into the archives. I couldn’t find any square photos but I did find some beautiful photos that should have been squares. Here they are:

Squares from the Past -Literally…October 10, 2021

….thanks to Becky B for hosting October Squares

These two photos were taken at the McMichael Gallery, depicting an old fireplace and cooking utensils used over 100 years ago.


October Squares – Circles and Squares

I’m posting these for Oct. 9 because I feel I”m behind in this challenge

The squares are from an art challenge that I started in the summer and the circles are from nature.

Past Squares – Lines in Nature

….thanks to Becky B for hosting October Squares

Lines can be found anywhere and nature has some wonderful lines if you look close enough.


Past Squares – Light from the Past

….thanks to Becky B for hosting October 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.

Lines in Art – October Square

….thanks to Becky B for hosting

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.


What Kind of Welcome is This?

….one that made me laugh when I saw it

Thanks to Becky B for hosting kindasquare in the month of October. I tried to participate as much as I could but with everything that happened in October I didn’t make my blog my first priority. Last week my husband and I needed a break so we took a little trip for a change of scenery. Needless to say I did no blogging while away. Here is my last entry for this challenge, albeit a few days late.


The Eyes Have It

….thanks to Becky B for hosting kindasquare for the month of October

I love or take kindly to the eyes of animals and birds. I often wonder what they’re thinking and try to see if there are any clues in the eyes.
