Outside Creelman Hall at the University of Guelph. The university was originally an agricultural school and to this day it still offers courses in farming and animal husbandry. This metal sculpture of a tractor with a farmer in the driver’s seat is new to me and my husband. I studied Family Studies here and met Kevin some 48 years ago through a friend who lived next door to me.
The colour for this month is brown. Brown is not the first colour that comes to mind for me but in my art I am appreciating this neutral colour more and more. In the family of browns one can find colours such as burnt sienna, raw sienna, burnt umber, chocolate brown, tan, beige, taupe, chestnut, russet, desert sand and beaver. Many of these browns are easily found in nature.
…now on at the Women’s Art Association of Canada on Prince Arthur St. in Toronto
This is one of my favourite art shows at WAAC. All the pieces are small and nothing is more than $400.00. This year I submitted three of my abstract flower/poppy paintings and one has already sold.
Yesterday I did some gallery sitting to greet visitors. I was there in the morning so it was very quiet. No more than 10 people are allowed in the gallery at once and of course everyone must wear a mask.
It’s not a huge show. There are about 100 entries. I walked around several times and really took in the individual pieces.
This last grouping was one of my favourites and I purchased the two paintings on the left.
My odd ball photos range from a line outside a Portuguese chicken place on Easter Sunday, leftover donuts after Easter dinner, my goofy Easter bunny husband, soapy dish water, Lambert the mascot at my local yarn shop to an unusual sculpture at the RBG.
