Getting Into Flow Motion

Good Day People,

Flow Motion is getting closer.  I visited Galerie 240 on the weekend.  It is looking quite nice with Brenda Warner’s black and white paintings, and Heather Kings large photos and Tom Wilson’s paintings.  Heather and Brenda’s works were showing  together at Galerie 240 as the show ‘Back to Black’.  Tom Wilson’s show ‘ Tom Wilson And A Cast of Thousands’ was happening in September/October.

Here is the direct link to the Galerie 240 website.

Today’s painting is one I completed a while ago.  I took these photos a couple days ago.

I seem to be flowing with a bit of a cold.  It reared its existence late last week and through the weekend.  I seem not to be herding swine but have had a low temperature.  Ah well, home alone.  I certainly do want it to run through its course before the show.  I’ve got work to do.

Eagerly awaiting the advent of ‘Flow Motion’






Below  is a link to the Canadian Archives website which hosts  a birds eye view of Ottawa in 1871.

Birds eye view of Ottawa, Ontario 1871; four years after Confederation when the new Dominion of Canada was established.

Remember that there were no aeroplanes in those days.  Perhaps the artists went up in a hot air balloon to get a a photo reference to make this map.  I shall have to research how they did it.

The future Galerie 240 would be located somewhere on the far right of this map in the market area.
