Feeling abit like the Royal Couple, (Will and Kate), I have been in Canada since June 24th, hosted by Susan Sutherland in the Kitchener/Waterloo area to conduct a fraktur design workshop within the Mennonite region of the design source. The following hostess was Anne Boissinot who lives near the McMichael Collection in Kleinburg. We toured this museum complex for a full day, exchanging our artistic views. What a great way to learn– visit a museum with a friend with similar interests.
I stopped briefly at Rittermere-Hurst-Field to lunch with Jeanne Field, Andrea Shepphard and the family/workers. Will be back for the Circle of Friends on July 9th in Aurora. See www.Letshookrugs.com for information.
Now in Belleville for the two weeks, enjoyed Canada Day by touring Prince Edward County. Art exhibits, farmers markets, and a beautiful day all recorded in my mind or on camera. Took shots of the sun moving across a mowed field highlighting bands at a time. The square bales were stacked in pyramids to be picked up later. Shapes, light and values were on my mind since this is the theme for the Loyalist College class beginning July 11th. www.Loyalistfocus.com see Susan Feller for details, opening in class still.
