The Small Gems Show

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.

The Eyes Have It

….thanks to Becky B for hosting kindasquare for the month of Octoberhttps://beckybofwinchester.com/2020/10/27/kinda-square-27/

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.

A Rare Sighting in the City

….but not in High Park

I was very excited when I came across this majestic bird in the pond in High Park this week. Great Blue Herons Great are can be found in High Park and they are one of the largest of the Park’s visitors. Their presence indicates that the water in Grenadier Pond provides food and a habitat where privacy and shallow shorelines are important.
