Last week Mr. Pixie took some vacation time and we did loads of lovely things. There was a trip to Canada's Wonderland. A night at the Mustang Drive-In which was fabulous and allowed me to relive my movie going childhood memories. We hiked a few times through Proctor Park which is only minutes away and one of my new favourite photo taking places. Just look at all those mushrooms growing on an old mossy log!
Or how about this little frog prince debating on leaping into D's hand.
We rounded off the week by attending the Picasso exhibit at the AGO. It was the last day. It was jam packed. It was fantastic. I won't lie and say I adore every piece Picasso ever created, but he does make me swoon and the exhibit was wonderful.
But it's back to the real world now. Here's a bunch of paintings I'll be showing at Lola's Coffeehouse in Brighton in September.
... and I'm scanning and fixing like a crazy lady to get a slew of new pieces ready for an October show.
Things will be fairly quiet on the blog over the next couple of weeks but I'm hoping to share a bunch of 'in-progress' posts when I begin my collage work with these old photos. Maybe you'd like to join along? Check back soon and we'll make a grand mess together :)
P.S. I'm pleased to say that "You-know-who-you-are" made the right decision. As far as I am concerned the matter is now settled.
Looks like a great trip. Wow that's a lot of mushrooms. looking forward to seeing what your doing with the photos.hum?ReplyDelete

Sounds like you have been having fun and enjoying what's left of the summer.
Love the paintings. Enjoy the upcoming shows!
Nichola, Your paintings are beautiful...I am glad you were able to enjoy yourself with your family and see the wonders that life has to offer. Those Pixies are sure busy building thier shelters (mushrooms) for the upcoming winter.ReplyDelete
