Barbara Muir © 2013We've had some major winter in Toronto.
And I've been working on a summer still life.
I've been enjoying it so much, but it's not finished.
So I thought I'd show you one part -- still a work
in progress. Lots to do, but I'm getting that summer
feeling painting it -- this section is of one of my
favorite flowers -- peonies in an antique water jug.
Toronto dressed up by a big snow storm
Another gorgeous snow sceneOn Friday we had 25 centimeters of snow here,
which looked postcard perfect on Saturday. I'm
glad I took some pictures to share with you,
because today it rained for most of the day, and
the huge snow banks were melting, and getting
muddy from the salt and sand trucks trying to
keep motorists safe. And the puddles. Wow!
Have a staying-warm-and-happy day.
beautiful peonies. keep warm:)
Thanks so much. You too. I hope you're having a wonderful winter,
and Happy Valentine's Day!
Looks beautiful, Barbara. I am looking forward to seeing the whole picture! Peonies are also some of my favourite flowers.
When it snows 5 cm here, it's already a big adventure...
Happy Valentine to you, too!
Great to see luscious pink blossoms this time of year on 19th century William Morris style arts and crafts crockery that you love to paint.
I think we got the same amount of snow last week in Hamilton that you did in Toronto - very exciting.
Happy Valentine's day!
Thanks so much. I love peonies too. Well we hardly ever get much snow here anymore either. This was a big deal. Now a lot of it had melted. Happy Valentine's Day to you. Please say hi to Hubert.
Thanks for this. Yes you probably did. I love your drawings. And please brave the streets of Toronto and come and see us. The whole painting is almost ready. Maybe one or two more days. It has a lot going on.
