The kid and I went to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) today... yes, I played hookie from the studio with Jen's assistance. THANK YOU JEN!!! We had a great day and I got some much needed time with my kid and family. Thank you!!!!

I am VERY lucky to have a kid who appreciates ART! She loves to sketch and is a big fan of Anime and Comics ... in fact, that's what brought us to Toronto to begin with. We attended a Comic Book "Speak Easy" at the Gladstone Hotel, stayed over in one of the hotel's designer rooms (the Felt Room, 416) and enjoyed a day in the city.... Yes, I'm sooooo lucky!!

Anyway ... we were both inspired by the Julian Schnabel exhibition at the AGO -- especially his Plate Paintings. The kid and I eagerly started planning a plate composition of our own. You should have seen the light in her eyes twinkle when I said I'd pick up some fun china sets so we could smash them and create art! Look out world. We're on a mission -- once our kitchen reno starts we'll create something very special to hang when it's complete. Makes me want to start the dreaded kitchen reno sooner rather than later. Whoa boy...... *smile*

I did snap a great pic of the kid. I loved it so much I played a little in photoshop when we returned. Hummm... I'm thinking fun transfer piece.... can you see it? *smile*

My mind is spinning.
I guess that's what happens when you're inspired and had a great day with a 13 (ahem, almost 14) year old! LOL Cheers everyone! Have a creative weekend!!
