Acrylic on canvas
Created : June 2020
I was watching my son “chat” to our Collie, Oakley and it seemed like she was listening to a story he was telling – Like she understood his toddler language and they were the best of friends. I needed to capture this moment on a canvas.

My little painting called “Summer Dream” was created for the February kids art Saturday morning class prototype. I wanted to create a summer backdrop to a project that they could complete which would evoke a warm, lazy summer feel during a cold and dreary month. They loved it, and created some beautiful paintings of their own.
Metro Road Barn
Lynda Quirino tells us:
My father’s painting is “Metro Road Barn”. It was painted in 1999. He was a first generation Canadian, born in Montreal of Slovak heritage. He moved to Georgina after having retired as an art director for a furniture company in Montreal and wanted to paint during his retirement. He was working on a painting of St. George’s Church in Sibbald’s Point when he passed away of cancer in 2001. He is buried in Briar Hill Cemetery in Sutton.

Thelma Sellers from Sutton shared her two recent paintings with us.
She wrote: “the first one I have called Covid – 19. After driving past the Skyline Barn on the Baseline two weeks ago I was be struck by how much it symbolized for me the Covid –19 pandemic these days.
“Leonard Cohen’s lyric from Anthem, as performed in London in 2008. A reminder of beauty in broken things:
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in
“The second painting depicts the Drag River in Halliburton.”
