Spring Island Spring

It seems like more than just a week ago that I was teaching in South Carolina. So much has changed in my city, my province, my country and the world since then. But it made me smile to open my sketchbook today and remember standing in the sun and showing my group how to create vignettes of the spring garden that surrounded us. And although it’s many weeks away, I’m looking forward to seeing some blooms in my own backyard this spring too.

On another note, if you are looking for a good way to fill up some of those long hours at home, here’s an link that a friend sent to me yesterday. The 38th edition of Montreal’s FIFA — International Festival of Films on Art — had to cancel their indoor event but they’ve made many of the films available on the web. For a $30 CDN online ticket, you can watch dozens of films on their online platform. I know my starter film will be this one. Films are available until midnight on March 29th.

    Your flowers are always so colorful and cheerful-and fresh. I watched the trailer on Mary Pratt.Just wonderful. I know nothing about her but now I will look into her art. Thanks for this.
