Here’s two photos from a mostly grey, flurrying day in Toronto last Friday, March 9th. The clouds and mist over the ravines always draw my attention with their endless beautiful variations. And I loved the look of this church I passed–the deep red and brown brick, the trees’ branches above. These scenes from the city–they continue to sustain me.
This week, I bought a Japanese paper for the miniature prints I’m going to submit to BIMPE and I’ve been pondering and making thumbnail sketches for the Wake Up card deck that I’m planning. I also continued a gouache painting on the Heart theme that I’ve begun. I often work on several projects at once with them all rolling around in my mind and on paper or board. Just when I thought I’d lost a thread forever, as with the card deck, it reappeared. I feel all these are part of a larger creative venture, despite any doubts I may have at times.

Lily, the shades of grey in the Toronto skyline are so beautiful and atmospheric. Sounds like you are on a creative, art-making roll. I feel so reassured when a theme, or image re -appears in my work, doesn’t it mean it is right for us and almost necessary to express? Looking forward to seeing where it leads.
Thanks, Carole. I agree with your thoughts about recurring themes. Also, yes, the greys in sky that day were awesome.
