Scenes from the Toronto Outdoor Art Expo. Part 1.

Last weekend I exhibited at the Toronto Outdoor Art Expo (TOAE) and had a fabulous time! It is an exhilarating weekend packed pull of impressive and diverse art. I took some pictures to share and give you a snapshot of the weekend. Such a great experience!
I met Celeste Keller. I have to admit I was fan-girling ; ). Love her work! And man, does she know how to kit out a tent!
Below is the work of Paul Gilroy. I loved these pieces. So fresh and modern. He was right across from my tent and he was a great guy - helped us get a tarp over our tent.
 This is the work of Patrice Carmichael. She was wonderful!
 The next two pieces are the work of I.E.M. Griffiths. SO GOOD! Love his paintings.
 This is the fabulous, strong work of Renée Gélinas. I remembered her from last year and was thrilled to see her back. Her work really speaks to me. Stunning!
A scene from Nathan Phillips Square.
 This is the work of Isabella Di Sclafaniart. Love the tone of these.
 Here is Jon Jarro. Wow.
 And this is work of the sculptor Peter Shoebridge. Breathtaking.
And last but not least I want to thank my show assistant for the weekend: my daughter. It is go-go-go at these shows and exhausting but she dug in and was a terrific help. THANK YOU! Sometime we will get the t-shirts ; )
I would like to do a second post of other artists I discovered in a couple of weeks when I gather and sort all the other business cards I collected. So inspiring and definitely good for the soul! Here's to the TOAE. I hope to be back next year!

Toronto Outdoor Art Expo THIS weekend!

Hello! I'd like to invite you to the Toronto Outdoor Art Expo at Nathan Phillips Square this weekend! I've been working away preparing and am almost ready. Today I was grouping my paintings together for booth placement and took a couple of snaps. These are a few of the pieces that will be available. The show runs from Friday September 18th to Sunday September 20th, 10:30-6:30 all three days. 
I am booth H25 on the corner of the fountain on Queen and Bay.
