Toronto International Art Fair

I attended the Special Gala Preview of the Toronto International Art Fair 2010, held the evening of Oct. 28th. The folks who attend this event pay $300 for a ticket that gets them into the fair 2 hours before everyone else.  This is an opportunity to buy the best pieces on offer at the various gallery booths.  I used a little Flip video camera and shot various items that caught my eye.  This 3:21m video is just an impression of my wandering around.

The Gala evening was good for me.  Looks like a number of my paintings now have new owners!

Chanson Rouge

Chanson Rouge, 48x48 in., oil/panel, (click to enlarge)

It's autumn, so I just had to try and get that glorious colour of a turning maple.  It beautiful and melancholy at the same time.  We're having a fantastic colour season this year in southern Ontario.  I'm out in it everyday, either riding my bike or walking.  It's so gorgeous it almost hurts.
