Figures

Pleased with the way my figurative paintings are coming along. I must say, it does take a lot of dedication, experience and sheer love of painting to really be true to the subject and give it the life it deserves. Without it, your painting will just be wall decor, pure and simple.

e-mail hacked

Been having some issues with my Mail, to the point where I was getting many letters from peter@petercolbert.com…

Anyone who has been the recipient of anything from me that seems a bit sketchy I apologize! I’ve gone ahead and changed my passwords so everything should be ok now.

Off to Australia

These 2 paintings were packed up and are going to Australia with Kate and her family, including the 2 blonde girls who are the stars of the paintings. Thanks to Kate, Pete and family and happy travels back to Oz!

Being thankful

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.

Final Day at the Fair

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!

Toronto Outdoor Art Fair

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.

Toronto Outdoor Art Fair Booth #194 this weekend

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.

Nice Show

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.

New Art Festival, Ottawa

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.
