Vist with some Friends in Toronto

While in Toronto I was able to take time for some of my friends.

I met with Bruce and Marlene and Joyce one evening for a delicious dinner. So good to see you and thank you for the song written on your way home Marlene and Bruce!

Then of course were the Rusty Nailers of 2008. It was so good to see everyone, thank you for taking time to visit, eat and talk art.

And.... there was a Castor spotting in down town Toronto!!

Toronto Watercolour Society

After the E.C.O. workshop, I had the pleasure of teaching for the T.W.S. at a cute hall in Lemonville.
This was a figure class with two models a day and lots of instruction to boot.
We were even able to paint through power and water outages!
Thanks Toronto for a great workshop.

East Central Ontario Watercolour!

Well the East Central Watercolour Society really knows how to paint and party!
For one weekend every year over one hundred like minded painters travel to a camp and work hard and play hard with skits, music and dancing the night away.
My class was great, I really enjoyed being a part of the weekend!
Over the years you meet such wonderful friends like Brigitte Schreyer (she is a fantastic artist!) who attended the E.C.O. weekend.

The Eye

By the way, in my Face and figure workshops I will demo different concepts. This is an example of an eye demo in progress.

Gabriola Island Symposium

The Federation of Canadian Artists organized a symposium on Gabriola Island in September. I was lucky enough to participate for a couple days before flying off to Toronto for another workshop.
The photo describes some of the beautiful scenery found on the Island.

East Coast Trip!

The first part of the trip began in New Brunswick where my friend Debbie showed me around the St. John area. Deb was a wonderful host and we had a great time touring art galleries and touring the local landscape.
We then traveled to Cape Breton Island for the CSPWC symposium. The week was a tremendous success videos of the week can be purchased through the water colour society (C.S.P.W.C.).
On the last day my friend Nicole and I toured the Cabot Trail, here is a photo of the beautiful scenery.
