Good dark and early morning from cool Kingston, Ontario. It's only 9C now, and will just hit 19C later, with possible showers. Radiation is now 75% done. Not much happened yesterday except for the aforementioned radiation, plus some weeding and lawn mowing. Today's painting is by Nora Frances Collyer (1898 - 1979), a member of the Beaver Hall Group in Montreal. It's of the Eastern Townships, the region south of Montreal.
Have a great day! (Stay out of the weeds!)
G’mornin’, everybody… at a measly 48 minutes east of midnight. Tomorrow temps will retreat to April levels again,, last week we still had an overnight snowfall,, aah, but of course, it’s to keep the ice in good shape for the ongoing over-hyped Battle of Alberta in the NHL playoffs betwixt Edmonton Oilers and the Calgary Flames. The flames extinguished the oil in last night’s tilt,, stay tuned for more on-ice hijinks…..
Have a terrific Thursday everyone.
A friend of mine is a working artist - that is his artwork is his only source of income. A lot of his recent work is done by masking parts of his canvass and then charring other areas with a torch. He also paints the un-charred areas on some of his works. He mounts some of his pieces in backlit frames and the effect is quite stunning. I find they look good wither way. Here is one of his works backlit and not. The photo is in focus but the piece depicts cars at night on a rainy city street so the blurring is intentional.
Good morning, people & their pets!

Another drizzly/rainy day. +5 C. on getting up. Environment Canada says all the way to 8 this aft. and I see it's already 6, so they're probably right. Wrt to precip. they say: "Rain, at times heavy, is expected. Another soggy weather system is poised to hit the region today and tonight, with already-saturated areas poised to receive 30 to 40 mm of rain by Friday morning. Rain should end Friday morning. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. I haven't been out and about to check, but I think the low-lying areas are in the "foothills" [i.e. of the Riding, Duck and Porcupine MOUNTAINS].
Hope everybody has a good day.
Continued puttering on the stone-guard for the trailer is on tap for today..... it involves cardboard, fiberglass [cloth on one side, resin used as glue on the other], paint and an actual flag, sort of guided by a hunch, so "puttering" it is. Will also fit in some TMITIMing.
