Queen West Art Crawl and the Art Show in Trinity Bellwoods Park.
Everything came together for this art show. The weather was absolutely fantastic bringing huge numbers of people out into the park to enjoy the art, food and atmosphere. The quality of the art shown was very good and there were really interesting food vendors. Just across from me was a stall selling spring rolls, dumplings, fish balls and meat things on a skewer. They did a roaring trade. Alongside was a very theatrical popcorn maker who continually had crowds around him as his huge pan began popping up a storm. There were also musicans playing in various areas around the park and they had chosen them well. My favourites among the people who played near me were the gypsy band with it's feverish music that had everyones feet tapping and a couple who played great jazz. I took some photos of the two jazz players as reference material for some future musical paintings. I met some great people and was honoured by the ones who decided to buy my work. I would gladly do this show again.
