Ruthis Pak Regis -- Beautiful work at Yorkminster Park Gallery

Acrylic on canvas

Sunday is our day for hanging out doing nothing. But today
was special! Why? Ruthia Pak Regis is having a solo show
that opened today at Yorkminster Park Gallery, and runs until February
13.  The show is called Round and round we go until we
see a little more. Her work is spectacular.  She focuses on intense
abstracted close ups of the natural world -- what you might see
looking down in a forest.

All but one of her paintings, a large energetic view
of nature at the end of the gallery, are on oval canvasses.
I was told by a friend when I entered the lovely space
that she wanted us to feel like we were looking in a mirror,
looking at each piece.  We need to be one with nature, and
these paintings make that clear -- highlighting the
exquisite beauty we might miss if we don't look closely.

Give yourself a treat if you're in the Yonge
and St. Clair area in Toronto, and go and see her
magnificent work

Have an enjoying artists' work day.

Thank you Laura, so true. Her paintings were magnificent. I wish I'd taken
photos at the show. Her choice of detail, colour and light were amazing.

Love your work so much!

Hi Ruthia,

Your show was a treat. I love all of the work. Just amazing, and now you're doing
a portrait that is equally amazing. Wow!
