Good dark and early morning from damp Kingston, Ontario. It's 14C under lightly showering skies. It might reach 22C during the day, with a good chance of more showers. Last evening we went downtown for Art After Dark, an event where various galleries and shops displayed art of various types. We started at a gallery we've been to a fair amount, which has loads of paintings we'd like, if we had the money. We even discovered one place that holds art workshops for kids and adults, featuring such techniques as splatter painting. When the young woman asked if I'd tried it, I responded, "Yes, in the Sixties," which caused one woman visitor to laugh out loud. Then, in answer to the visitor's inquiry about who Prudence Heward was (her name was on the wall), I was able to explain that she was a member of the Beaver Hall Group (in Montreal in the 1920s). Here's one of her paintings, "Farmhouse and Car", oil on plywood. Anyway, it was a good time out now that the radiation's over. Also, on this date six years ago, Sheesham and Lotus and 'Son gave a concert north of here, in Battersea. That's Sam Allison as Lotus Wight. Sam is so expressive, he's a delight to photograph, not to mention an incredible banjo player.
Have a great day! (Don't get splattered!)
