Such a great response at the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair last weekend! I appreciate the people coming by to say hello, discussing art. Really appreciated all the wonderful volunteers who were available to sit in my booth as I took another break, searching for lattés or retrieving paintings from my van in the parking garage.
The organization of the show is always excellent, the other artists are just the best, lots of fun to mingle, chat and support one another.
With sales going extremely well despite lots of rain on Saturday afternoon (you can say that again) and extreme sun and heat in my tent on Sunday, I’d have to say that I had a fantastic weekend! Thanks to all who made it possible.
What a great show this has been, meeting tremendous people from the Toronto area and beyond, selling 7 paintings so far, and actually having a great time. Bit of a monsoon yesterday but the sales and connecting with the public more than made. up for it! All is good at the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair.
Especially grateful for meeting Cynthia and Don last at their beautiful downtown condo… their new painting, Channel 3, looks smashing in its new home. Thanks, guys!
Need to thank the wonderful people who. came by my booth yesterday, those who visited for a bit and appreciated my work, and especially new people who collected my work! Lots of fun, my figurative work is doing so well (is there a lesson here?) and I wish I had a few more.
The other artists are in great form as always, with my buddy Chris around the corner… the quality of the work over all is outstanding.
Friday – Sunday July 12-14th, 10am until 6pm at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto… come by and by a painting. Or just say hello! I’ve decided to feature my figurative paintings at this show with all the work painted in 2019. It should be a hot, fun time. The calibre of art last year, I thought, was absolutely outstanding.
Really enjoyed myself at the New Art Festival in Ottawa on the weekend!… sales were good, made great contacts and basked in the sunshine. Advised folks that I’m represented in Ottawa by Wall Space Gallery.
Had my van backed into by someone while parked on Powell Ave. however, had to attend to that first thing this a.m.
My next venue is about one month away, at the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair in Nathan Philips Square.
Nice to have an outdoor art show in my hometown! Tomorrow in Central Park, The Glebe, I’ll be showing some of my art, with the accent on figurative work, in booth #50, just off of Bank Street in Ottawa. I invite you to come out, say hello, and of course buy a painting or 2.
Glad to contribute one of my paintings for the silent auction at the annual, growing and important Volunteer Ottawa fundraiser. They do incredible work, and volunteering is the heartbeat, the soul of the City of Ottawa.
Had a nice walk with our dogs yesterday… through The Marshes golf course in Kanata. Until it opens it is an excellent place to walk dogs off leash, and our dogs, especially Rocky, our Jack Russell, enjoyed it immensely!
Just at the Miami Airport after a great week cruising to Key West, Mexico and the Caymans with Nancy. Wonderful week, excellent weather and just spoiled rotten, rotten, rotten. Made some great new friends, too.
Now back to much colder Ottawa and gradual warming trend… and, of course, back to painting.
