Dream - Jimmy Scott, Ella Fitzgerald and Stevie Wonder

I'm listening to the Dream album by Jimmy Scott. I remember when I first heard him and was convinced he was a woman. I really like to listen to the nuances in his voice. His voice is exceptionally unique and very blues-y.

So, I'm sitting here listening to Jimmy, if I may call him that, as I ready myself for an art installation at: 

Rainbows Cinemas
80 Front St E, Toronto, ON M5E 1T4

The show runs from October 1st to October 30th. All works are for sale. And will include:

Finally installed in Toronto. They were first on exhibit at: 

Mojo Music in Oakville. 

A Tribute to Whitney Houston currently hangs there. If you're in the area, swing buy and get yourself a guitar and a painting.

At Rainbow Cinemas I will be exhibiting selected works from A Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald and A Tribute to Stevie Wonder:

It's the perfect day. You can see a film, see and art installation and buy some fresh produce at St. Lawrence Market which is across the street.

I'll write about this some more later.

Punching the Rain

The North Toronto Group of Artists and other art groups are exhibiting in the halls of Capitol One as we speak. The art varies from acrylic on canvas to book illustration.

The piece I submitted is called, Standing by You. 
Standing By You - 2014 - $250

This work is a collage of faces grouped very close together, overlapping. All a part the audience of life.
It is a piece from my works entitled Inks on Family.

The title piece, The Circle of Family 
The Circle of Family - Sold

was shipped to its proud owner in Brooklyn, New York.

Mother Teresa said, 'The problem with the world is that we draw the circle of family too small."

Soon to grace the store fronts of North Toronto are original works by the North Toronto Group of Artists. Look forward to seeing, Punching Rain in the window of St. Germain Gallery on Yonge Street North of Lawrence. 

If you had your eye on Swim Swirl.

That piece was donated to the Urban Alliance on Race Relations, (UARR's) fundraiser last week and was purchased by a proud supporter of their efforts.

That's all for now, folks!

Stay beautiful!
