Of all the things for me to be interested in, I never would have thought classic cars would be on the list! I attended a classic car show last summer, and I was smitten! It was such a beautiful time of day too, not long before sunset, when the shadows are long and the light is rosy. I wanted to get into this baby, and drive down Route 66.
On a recent trip to Florida, I went to the Flagler Museum with my friend Pam. Henry Flagler's railroads and luxury hotels established tourism and agriculture as the mainstays of Florida's economy. Flagler built the 55-room, 60,000-square-foot Gilded Age mansion, Whitehall, as a wedding present for his wife, Mary Lily Kenan Flagler. Visiting the museum was an incredible learning experience.
This is a view on Lakeshore Blvd. in Toronto. I paint a lot from photos, and I see many missed opportunities for fantastic images as I am driving around. Thank goodness for being stuck in traffic jams! This is from a photo taken a number of years ago, and this view no longer exists because of the plethora of condos being built in this area of Toronto.
