This spring I moved to Toronto. As much as I loved my stone house, I knew I needed a change. My beautiful property was too much work and last winter’s relentless ice storms scared me. I have sacrificed fresh air, a car, a TV and a microwave to become a city slicker. Toronto has so much to offer that I am overwhelmed. I am steps away from the ROM, AGO, theater and as much music as I need.
After years of painting, I find the work is not one bit easier. Watercolor still challenges me. In the country, material was right out my window, so this urban setting will require me to use more discipline and imagination. The rhythm of symbols and seasons that inspire me will stay the same.
They say change is good …I sure hope so.
