Harbourfront

Today was such a beautiful day that I thought I would head down to the Harbourfront. I really like it there! I think I *might* move there. It is so peaceful and fresh!
I brought my camera to show you a couple of pictures. You can click on the pictures to make them big.


See all the condos? Wouldn't it be a nice place to live? Watching the boats sail by...


PLUS there is a HUGE arts and crafts center there! I went in and there are studios of jewelry silversmithing and glass blowing. So cool!


These canoes looked just like a box of crayons :)

It was a bit chilly, so I got inspired to paint this new painting hee hee:



I also painted another oval canvas. This time it is Little Red and baby wolf. He hasn't got his sharp teeth yet :)



Both paintings are up for grabs on ebay

Hugs for now!

Love to see "neighborhood" pics. Toronto is such a great city. I lived on Howland near Bloor and Bathhurst years ago.

I understand you well. It must be great to live by the water.
Your paintings are sweet. I love the wolfe- cub but also the kitty with that shawl.
Very cute.

Thanks Tascha,
Funny, I spent the early afternoon looking at your work and feeling inspired. I adore your use of color, and it never fails to perk me up to see your darling little girls and kitties. You are amazing and so prolific! I don't know how you keep it up.

Oh man, that waterfront looks so appealing. We have an area like that in Tacoma that we could have bought a condo in a few years ago, and now it is out of your price range. I hope you find the perfect place down there. I think it would be so fun to be down there walking every day.

Tascha!

I'm so jealous!

Yes, that would be a great place to live. Save one of those condos for me! LOL

You're right. Those canoes do look like a box of crayons!

The two newest paintings look adorable as always. I like the one with the colorful scarf the best.

Thanks for sharing the photos!

Tascha, your photos make me want to come across the lake and live in Toronto..I'm on the south shore of Lake Ontario and could get there pretty quick if I were a bird! I absolutely love your paintings, your characters,,they are wonderful. I'm so glad I just found you. I also like your sense of whimsey! That's what it's all about! I,too have been owned by Siamese cats!

Hey Tascha :)
I used to love going to Harborfront too.. its especially nice on a beautiful sunny summer afternoon. Found a slightly cheaper place though and rented a condo right behind the Okeefe Center on Esplanade. Was walking distance to *everywhere* it seemed (really close to the St Lawrence Market), including Harborfront :) Oddly enough I felt safer there.

Hope things are good with you! Glad to see its finally spring up there.
