To the people who asked for abstracts -- here's one!

 Broken Line #3
Acrylic on canvas
12 x 12 inches

At the show I was in in April with Gill Cameron,
at the Wychwood Barns, one couple was struck with
my large abstract pieces and said they'd be interested
in a smaller painting in that style.

That made me think that in the midst of my
other work -- I might create at least one smaller
abstract a week if I was in Toronto.

This week I've been working on this painting --
a continuation of the Broken Line series I started
for a show at the Super Wonder Gallery curated
by the superb curator, Daniel Anaka.

Have an enjoying life in the abstract day.

Always wanted to try abstraction--I love it--but don't know where to start!
Love the movement and see a I'd space.

Hi Laura,

I tried it because I've been working with a curator
who keeps coming up with new show ideas. Something
about the way he described the exhibition and the
challenge of it, made me do it. And it was a lot
of fun. I'm sure you could do abstract work.

It's a lot like everything else we do. I still want
to do still life, and portrait and landscape and now
add abstract from time to time.
