Painting with All Ages, Tuesdays at the BoHo

The Artful Life (con’t) Max Out This Day!

Within our day to day routines, and our preconceived notions of what we should be at this or that age, sometimes we forget, or we lose confidence, or, we think it is too late, or a hundred other reasons creep in, that tell us why we are better off not starting something new or doing […]

The Artful Life

Canadian “May Two Four” Celebration

After every long Canadian winter, “mild” or not, there are few weekends so celebrated as the wonderful Victoria Day holiday that falls sometimes near  and sometimes  not so near the 24th of May. I think back to when we were in our late teens and early 20’s, going camping on the Victoria Day weekend was mandatory to continue […]
