The forecast predicted 20 degrees celsius for this afternoon. It didn't quite get that warm, but Huxley and I put our bikes into the back of the car and drove down to the Commissioner's Street and went for a ride along the bike path.
At 4 1/2 he is already riding without training wheels and having fun. It is interesting to see though, how at this age, the human brain is really not yet wired to do more than one thing at the time. It is so easy for him to get distracted and swerve to the side. I have to be on hyper-alert to not run him over.
We went to Cherry beach and discovered a brand-spanking-new playground that is bound to become a city favourite once word gets out.
Here is also a view of Toronto, taken from the playground, that includes mountains (grin-for those of you who know our city)
Isn't it scary to know that this is salt, waiting to be dumped onto our streets?
I know that this blog has been a bit Huxley-heavy lately, but with his new haircut, I can't resist, so please bear with me, while I show off two more:
On the studio front, I worked on 8 pieces 6 x 6 inches and 8 x 8 inches. They are all re-works from that awful Triart Topcoat disaster that damaged over $20,000 of work a couple of years back. Luckily I was able to rework them and most pieces are sold now. These little ones are almost the last batch.
I'm also contemplating making another bunch of smaller pieces, even though a couple of years ago I decided to not work smaller then 16 x 16. It's a money question, because the galleries take 50%, and at less than a hundred dollars, and calculating all the time that I spend on them, it's not worth it for me. Now I'm thinking that it might be a good way to test new colours and experiments. Then again, it does provide some instant gratification. I'm gonna try and take some pictures in the next few days to show you what I've been doing.
