This is my submission to the ALS Paddle Auction Fundraiser. I decided to go full on Canadiana. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ The handle is painted with the Hudson’s Bay stripes, and each side of the paddle shows an iconic symbol of Canada: the beaver and the maple leaf. 
The paddles will be up for auction Saturday, May 2 at Megalomaniac Winery. Tickets available from Eventbrite. 
This paddle was painted in memory of our dear friend, John Hamm. πŸ’ž

Let’s talk about colour. It’s so personal, eh? My husband has a strong (negative) reaction to a certain green I mix. Whenever I use it in a painting, he never likes the painting. LOL 
But there are some colours that just resonate with us so deeply. 
Colour memory. 
Colour mood. 
All that to say I *really* connect with the colours in this piece. Very good associations for me. 
What are the colours that draw you in?
(I could talk colour for hours πŸ˜‰)

ARTLOVE πŸ–€
Today’s ARTLOVE are paintings by Tom Hodgson (1924-2006). Hodgson was a Canadian painter, born in Toronto. By all accounts he was quite a wild one* πŸ‘€ Here are three of my favourite pieces of his: Street Scene #3, 1958; January ‘58, 1958; and Untitled, 1958. I just can’t get over the gorgeous colour, shapes and line. Superb! If you want to read further about him, please check out the beautiful book Painter’s Eleven, The Wild Ones of Canadian Art by Iris Nowell.
*he has quite a story and as a side note, he was also a two-time Summer Olympian in canoe sprinting.
