Summer evenings

My posts have been sparse, its not that there isn't visual inspiration here, its that I tend to forget to pull out my camera while on the gauntlet that has become my dog walk. I dodge traffic, dogs, skateboarders and irate lawn owners. For the first while I found this very gloomy. I knew that being here was the right decision but I missed my thoughtful, reflective, solitary daily walks. I was jarred; I'm still a bit jumpy. I am still gaining perspective; but I am definitely enjoying the city. I love the warm evenings, strolling down Roncezvelles in flip flops and a loose skirt, going to the Gate for a cold beer and great jazz. Sunny days, the love and support of friends.

New works

I just put some new works up on my website
Go see!!

And if you are in Toronto; Grant is playing at Gate 403 June 18th 5-8pm.
He’ll be playing upright bass and guitar in a style that interweaves jazz and classical techniques with latin rhythms to create a distinctive sound.

Leslie Street Spit

Sunday morning jaunt to the Leslie Street Spit. Did not stay long; it was very hot but found a few colourful treasures along the way. Anyone know what these neat red things are? They can not be good for this tree but I love them.

And yay for the red lady bug; those orange ones just aren't the same. I know its such a cliched image but so perfect nonetheless.
