My next big event is participating in the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition (TOAE). I will be showing landscape painting that investigates climate change. Unpredictable weather and celestial omens in these paintings signal changes in the environment through strong colour, movement and shape. The TOAE runs July 14(10-7), 15(10-7) and 16(10-5) in Nathan Philips Square in downtown Toronto. See www.torontooutdoor.art for more information. I look forward to seeing old and new friends at my booth in the Plaza, Booth 60.
