Dufferin Continues

This intersection in a busy Toronto thorough fair no longer exists; it was once a scenic, but time consuming jog in the road, which needed a sign to explain the direction to go. The whole construction job involved a lot of time, and I'm sure money, and it is now as straight as an arrow, and this sign is no longer necessary.

Those Eyes

This is Picasso, I dog I see regularly when I am doing my dog walking gig. He is just gorgeous, and he has the most remarkable eyes. They are very dramatically outlined, but they have such a soft look. He was rescued from the streets in Costa Rica (I think!) and has a wonderful life with his Toronto family.

Honey Harbour

It's been such a long time since I posted, I barely remember how to do it! I have been on a forced hiatus, but I am pleased to finally have more time to paint. I meant this to be a much more productive summer, but you never know what is around the corner.
I did manage a visit to a friends cottage and had a relaxing time. Georgian Bay has been a favorite since my parents had a cottage there when I was a kid.
Honey Harbour is a lovely spot on the Bay, and you can't beat the Georgian Bay sunsets.
