Super Moon/Blood Moon fails to show...

I had set up my gear for an evening of painting the rare lunar event, but cloud cover spoiled the view.
Still, an evening out painting is an evening out painting.

Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition

The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition has been an annual art fair since 1961, when Toronto entrepreneurs Murray and Marvelle Koffler launched the first TOAE in a hotel garden.
The City has hosted the exhibition at Nathan Phillips Square since 1967.
It's an exciting show with great variety of work, something of interest to all.
I'm pleased to be marking my seventh year 'on the square'. I'll be at booth H13, if anyone should be in the area.

During the recent hot days, painting at night seemed a good option. And it's always a challenge.
Here are a few samples:

Night Work 11x14, oil on panel

                                          Ravine 11x14, oil on panel
