An 8x16 painting of the tanker "Metis" from Cherry St.
An 8x10 sketch of car parked on Harbord St. from the other day. Trying to experiment painting against the sun with this one.

I was lucky enough to join a group show of local artists last week here in Toronto's Annex. A special thanks to Angie Fong for talking (forcing) me into this! Also, thanks to Monica Gupta and Dawn Vrablic who organized the event, deemed me worthy to join, and brokered the art deals! It felt good just to show, and I was shocked and elated to sell 9 paintings in the end.

Here's a couple of sketches from Cherry Beach from the last two weeks. Both 8x10 oil. Both about 2 hrs.
This was some sort of beach hut. Didn't get to the bells and whistles, but this caught something of it.
This is a painting of a somewhat derelict boat moored near the shore. (Mental note to self.. check wind direction beforehand next time when painting anchored subjects!). We ran into the new owner of this boat while finishing up painting. He said someone had just given him the boat for free (yeah, it was in pretty rough shape).

I finally got out last weekend and had a crack at a few boats down by the lakefront.
