Wonderful artist friends

 
Kim Rempel and me with her beautiful paintings
at her booth at the Toronto Outdoor Art Expo
This weekend my friend Kim Rempel was
exhibiting at the Toronto Outdoor Art Expo
at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto. Kim
is an amazing artist with an incredible
range.  She is equally at home with her
gorgeous, colourful abstracts and with
her large plein air landscapes and smaller
still life work.

I loved her abstract exhibition.  And
heard when I got home after visiting
that my blog friend, Catherine Jeffrey
was at the show too!  The exhibition
was huge, so I determined to go
back on Saturday and look for Catherine
and her lovely work.  Success, it was
so nice to meet her.

Catherine's cityscapes mostly of Toronto
downtown are magnificent, and it was
such a treat to see them in person.  Plus
Catherine is a sweetheart. It's hard to
imagine on the computer how big her
larger works are -- and they are superb.
I came home from my second visit to
the exhibition with glorious images of
Kim's lush abstracts, and Catherine's Toronto
filling my happy imagination.

Thank you my friends for all of the work
you put into bringing your art to the fans
in Toronto.

Have a going-to-see-your-friends'-art day.

Hi Kim,

I enjoyed myself immensely. Your family are so amazing, your cousin and your sister, and your uncle, all helping. And your work is just beyond amazing. Plus it is a really great location.

Thanks so much. It was so fun.
