Judy Anderson has a great series based on board games. I don’t know about you, but playing board games make up about three quarters of my childhood memories, so I’m loving these paintings. She’ll be at booth PINK 117 at the upcoming TOAE.

By his own admission, Brian J. Harvey focuses on the mundane, and I’ve always thought that elevating the mundane was a fantastic ability. A really good painting can make you re-examine the world, or at least a small part of it, and that’s always a good thing.
Robyn Drage has several series of paintings on the go, and it looks like the figurative works will be appearing at the Toronto Outdoor this year. Keep an eye out for them at booth GREEN 363.
I am always a sucker for a good urban landscape, but it’s almost hard to categorize Alexandra D’Arcy’s paintings as such. They clearly suggest high rise buildings in clusters, but are also light and colourful experiments in abstraction. One thing they are for sure is enjoyable.
Visit Alexandra at booth BLUE 208 this year at the TOAE.
You can find Laura Culic’s amazing landscapes at booth ORANGE 413 this year at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. Of course, you can see them before that on her site.
If you live in Toronto you may already be aware of the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition that takes place every summer at Nathan Phillips Square. If you don’t know about it, that’s ok too, because I’m dedicating the next three weeks to artists who will be appearing at this years Exhibition (which takes place July 11, 12, and 13) to get you primed for the event.
I’ve been enjoying this amazing show since I moved to Toronto, it’s a great opportunity to see incredible work by over 500 artists all in one place, and it’s free!
In the interest of full disclosure I should also mention that I will be participating in the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition again this year, so swing by booth Green 370 and say hello!
On days like today, when without even trying I ran into the website for an amazing painter, Douglas C. Bloom, I am very happy to have a place to share my findings. Enjoy!
