This Saturday September 18, from noon to 4 p.m. the
Don Valley Art Club is holding a reception for its
fall show at Todmorden Mills in Toronto. I will have
two pieces in that show, so if you're in the area, please
come out and see the work. The Gallery is beautiful, and
there are bike paths and hiking paths close by, so you can
combine activities.

The following weekend is the St. Clair Artwalk, and I will
once again be opening my studio to the art loving
public from noon until 4 p.m. Saturday, September 25,
and Sunday September 26. If you're in Toronto I'd love to
see you there. Check out the information at the Artwalk
web site.

Tonight's painting is the final version of Shadow Play in
Forest Hill. I am quite happy with it. So it's a great feeling
to have two very different paintings in the D.V.A.C. show and
to be quite delighted with both of them.

Have a painting-whatever-strikes-your-fancy day.

I LOVE it! Wonderfully peaceful painting! And I regret that I can't come and see the original at your show. Good luck, Barbara!

Hi Liza,

Thanks so much. I wish you could come here. That would be amazing. Maybe? Ah well. Collect those points.

Hi Marilyn

Thanks so much. I have been so impressed with the beauty of shadows this summer. Just knocked out. I guess we're lucky to see the world and all its variety with so much excitement.

Take care,

Barbara

Oh, how I love the blue shadows! Beautiful painting, Barbara.

Wishing you all the best with both upcoming exhibits. You go, girl!!

I'll be there in spirit.

OK--Wow is all I have to say.

Hi Melinda,

Thanks so much. When I was on vacation this was the only painting I worked on. I thought it was ironic that I was at the ocean working on a painting of the shadows in my own neighbourhood, but I just loved the light.

Thanks too for your sweet good wishes.
I know I'll have fun at both events.
