Castles, painting and birthdays

Casa Loma, Toronto

Today we took a short walk in a lovely neighbourhood
close to our own. We drive by Casa Loma almost every
day, but it doesn't look the way it did today at the end
of a very pretty street rising up in the distance.

I worked on the Water Series Image 3 today, but
it's not at a finite stage, so I can't show you. I'm adding
shadow, but the shadow on this image is not as
defined as on the other two, so I am in the midst of
figuring out what's going to happen next.

Tonight we went to a friend's birthday -- a delightful
event, small with great company and delicious
food. We had a lot of fun. Now it's late and time
for bed.

If you come to Toronto you have to visit our "castle".
I remember going to a formal, or prom there when I
was in high school, but even though it's incredibly
close we've never visited it, or taken our children
to see it. All that's going to change this year I'm

Have a dreaming-of-castles-on-Spadina-Avenue-in-Toronto day.
