8x10 Oil on Canvas
This past weekend, I was at the juried Toronto Outdoor Art Show. In spite of the heat and rain, it was a wonderful show. The people were very gracious and positive and I enjoyed the conversations and comments. It was my first outdoor show in many years and it was a learning experience regarding presentation, framing, and pricing. There are some things that I would change for future shows.
I also met C.C.H. Pounder who played Mo'at in the movie Avatar. (Neytiri's Mom and the spirit leader) What a lovely person...and she bought some small paintings. She collects pictures of people in the rain.
In this painting, taxis head down Front Street during rush hour, the yellow umbrellas from Le Papillon Restaurant folded during the late afternoon rain.
