Menacing Mice


Halloween's almost here!
This is the first time I've painted by candlelight (well, tea light) and it was quite tricky, but a treat!

fast friends

I've been wanting to paint this dark vase with white flowers for some time now. When I set them up on their own, I quickly realized they needed some friends to accompany them.

there's something fishy going on here...

This is my 2nd online painting challenge this week. 
I had a lot of fun doing this Daily Paintworks Challenge which was to paint the same object from many perspectives with a time limit of 10 minutes each.

Red Bicycle

I thought I'd spend this week doing a few online painting challenges.  This first one is from The Green Palette which posted bicycles as this week's subject. This lovely red bicycle lives around the corner from me.

Steady stream of people through the day
Reverse Angle of Showroom
Another wonderful show! I received lots of positive feedback and made a few more sales. I'm reinvigorated! Now, back to my easel.

Art Show - Opening Night!

I spent the whole day preparing for our group art show tonight at St.Barnabas Church here in Toronto.  I've been in the show for the last 9 out of 23 years that it's been running!  Here's my table with all my little goodies on it.  Super happy to say that 2 of them sold! Back tomorrow for the final day - suppose to be a warm one.  Yippee!
we put 4 chairs (top row) on top of a table (middle row) and 4 chairs in front of it (bottom row), then toss a couple of sheets over it.  Works perfectly!

walking along

I painted this from a sketch I drew while walking down the street. I loved my drawing series "walking while drawing", which is exactly what it sounds like, draw, walk, don't lift the pencil and watch your step! Perhaps I'll get back to it.

waltzing carnations

This lovely bunch of flowers were carried home in the cold and rain, but they stayed cheerful!

Sketching on the subway. I'm especially happy with Lime Twist since I had to draw it in the short time the subway doors open!

This Vespa lives down the street from me.  It's sooo cute!

Path from Spadina House

Gorgeous weather today.  I guess everyone is with family for the Thanksgiving long weekend because the Spadina gardens were deserted!
