With only days remaining until the paintings go down to McMichael, I contemplate whether or not I will be consumed by the dust bunnies growing and wildly reproducing on my laminate floor before ever getting out of the building. I have let the house cleaning slip as I struggle to keep everything else on track. The work in progress above is the last painting to be completed before the Show. It is the latest painting from the Livingstone House – the story I have been promising my readers for much too long and I managed to forget to put it in the newsletter…. I need a secretary!
There is still one nagging question I have yet to answer about the property in the early part of this century and it will require a trip to the Land Registry Office. That is unlikely to happen this week. So here’s the deal… I will post what I do know with the finished painting in 3 or 4 days. The rest will be in the November Newsletter scheduled for mid-November. I promise! (ducks rotten tomatoes)
It has been slow progress the last several weeks and I was hoping to have accomplished a little more, but, physical limitations needed to be respected. One lesson I will take away from this is better stress management! Between my schedule and the rotten weather, which included snow last weekend, I don’t even have any good Autumn photographs from this season. So instead, I am attaching a shot of some leaves from a few years ago. In a little over a week, they will likely all be gone.
Thanks to the superb work of the “Save the Southwood Church” people, Gravenhurst Council has agreed to rescind the order for demolition. Congratulations! There is much work to be done, so if anyone is interested in being involved, here is a link the the FaceBook Group. For my post on the visit to Southwood, Muskoka… here.
