Today was the spring Christie spring antique show out in Flamboro. Unfortunately, both of us couldn’t go as Georgie had a vet appointment mid-morning we didn’t want to miss. Fortunately cousin Paul was going with us so Tuffy P had some company.
Tuffy P came back with some excellent stuff. Regular readers will know by now that we delight in repurposing all kinds of old stuff around the house and garden. She found a couple excellent wrestling action figures for the kitchen, a bird house, some shutters, and a simple cowboy whirligig for the canoe garden.
Lee and Tim have vastly different approaches to art-making, but both share a very personal sensibility. I’ve only known Lee a short while, but I’ve known Tim for many years, going back to our days at York University. Later, Tim often joined Tuffy P and I, our friend Ardis and also the late Ron Bloore on painting/drawing trips. We called it Sunday painting, because we would typically go out on Sunday mornings. We’d drive around the countryside looking for places to draw and paint, hike a little, and enjoy a wee picnic along the way.
Lee is exhibiting small black and white “RetroDigitalCollages” and Tim is showing new expressive paintings including acrylic paintings, oils and watercolours.
