Huge week in art!

Thank you to C. U. Slater for taking this video of his friend, sculptor
Bert Jackson doing the 22 day challege in front of my painting
Breakfast in the Hotel at the MUSE Show opening at Super Wonder
Gallery on Saturday night here in Toronto, Canada.

It has been such a week of art adventures!  Thank you to
everyone who came out to the MUSE art exhibition at the Super
Wonder Gallery, 876 Bloor Street West (near Ossington)
in Toronto.  And if you haven't seen it you owe yourself
that pleasure! It's on until Wednesday night from 2 - 8 p.m.,
and it is spectacular.

The show opened on Friday and Saturday night and
my large still life Breakfast in the hotel, and two landscapes
Magic Day in the Neighbourhood, and Across the Highway
were given a place of honour -- the front wall in the exhibition
designed by the brilliant curator, Daniel Anaka.

Last weekend my painting In the right place at the right time
was featured in a gorgeous exhibition in a church/
restaurant in The Netherlands as part of the Worp show.
Mid week my portrait of the supremely beautiful Regan began
its journey to France (more on that tomorrow), to be displayed
at the Louvre.  Whew!

There are so many exciting, excellent, significant paintings
in the MUSE exhibition that I was delighted that my big still
life attracted a lot of attention and seemed to energize people --
like the super sculptor, Bert Jackson who is doing a 22
day, 22 push-ups-a-day challenge in support of first responders
suffering from PTSD.  His challenge aside from push-ups,
is to find someone new to take on the 22 day/22 push-up
challenge, for each of the 22 days.

Have a letting art give you an energy boost day.
