And I bought a beautiful painting today by Aminda Wood. I thought it was called "Cold Flowers" but here it is called "Flower Fancy". Anyway, it is lovely and inspiring and Aminda happened to be buying an espresso at the same time as me so I gave her a cheque on the spot.
And another wonderful artist, Rob Farmer, has a show opening tomorrow in Toronto. Where the Wild Things Are at 10 Wolseley Ave, main floor, one block north of Queen St West at Denison Ave... I bought a post-apocalyptic dolly painting from him last fall (Diamonds and Rust). You have to see them in person to get a feel for the dark side hidden in the pink bunny exteriors.
And I have now spent 2 hours on two bars of first movement Vivaldi #14 in C minor. It's been a great summer.
