Going all flowery on you

The Don Valley Art Club's spring show starts next weekend,
on May 11, and is on at Todmorden Mills Gallery in Toronto for 
the next two weekends.  I decided to go with flowers, because it's
spring, and I love flowers.

So here's the final version of the painting I showed you yesterday.

I also submitted this painting of my friend Ken Lander in Pugwash,
Nova Scotia at his garden center, Sunrise Greenhouses, with a view
of the ocean.

I'll be in New York City next weekend, so I'll miss the opening, but
I'll get to enjoy all the wonderful art in the great, large gallery when I
sit the show the next weekend.

Have a going-all-flowery-on-yourself day.

Gorgeous! I love your vibrant work Barbara. I just left a comment on Making Magic in Montreal (a new fave) and then see these flowers. A nice lift to my night ; ) Bravo.

Hi Kim,

Thanks so much. I'm in New York right now, heading to the MoMA in minutes. Such a charge watching the editor of Vogue last night on Colbert in our hotel room, and realizing we're going to a show that starts today -- love it here. Love your abstract work. You are a clever woman.

Hi Sally,

Thanks so much. Just being in New York is luck enough. I love it here more than I can say, and Steven's smile went from ear to ear the moment we stepped off the plane. Only New York is New York. See you soon.
