I dug this guy up, but after I planted my flowers I gently put him back. Cute ah!! 

Art

Art.... I just do not have the energy for it right now. I seem to have other health priorities, and honestly I have come to the conclusion it will come when I'm feeling it. 

I have been taking photographs though. I will post some of them soon. Mostly of nature and other unique things. Right now I'm resting and working on my first real garden.

I planted a bunch of herbs, mostly Basil and a few others and few kinds of tomatoes and peppers and cumbers, it's pretty much an experiment,  trying to give the garden lots of water and maneuver. 

Unlike most people I hope it's a rainy summer. I will post a picture when it grows. 🌱🌼

My iphone will not let me edit my personal information that you see on the right without crashing.
 SO
(just a reminder i'm not taking commissions at this time) 
I am taking a break..
With some encouragement I decided to take a day class on beekeeping with a friend, to try to get out of the house and maybe develop a new hobby and heal. #beesarelife @beesarelife
Although most of my work tends to be abstract and architectural,  the class inspired A few pieces, bee hives. It's pretty much architecture but for bees, lol. 

I am not sure what direction things will go in the future, but I love the visuals of these cute little bees flying around collecting nectar and pollen  to make one of my favourite things honey. 
I'm hoping at a later date things will sort themselves out and maybe I will be well enough to be as productive with my art as I was in the past. Art for me is often therapeutic, however at this time I'm finding it exhausting, but I am proud  of what I have created,  here is a few images and close-ups. 
The bees  are super cute!!! And are actually pretty friendly. 🐝 
Sorry I will not be taking commissions at this time. 
But who knows what the future holds. hopefully something sweet! 
If this is the first time you are seeing my pyrography/wood-burning, please scroll down so you can see my previous work. 
I hope you find it inspiring ❤️

Close ups. 🔍.






The hive is doing well this summer. 🌷.








The bees are buzzing! 🐝.


The small hive.


The skep.


I have to apologize for disappearing for such a long time  on my blog. I took on A crazy job that somehow consumed my life, after quite a few incidents I had to take a leave,  Somehow my nerves are shot and the euphoria keeps coming back. I find it nauseating to even look at these images however this is why I disappeared. 


I am sorry, this piece was finished over a year ago I will explain, next post.

This is my interpretation of how I would design in the North west corner of King and Spadina, Toronto.

In progress 2'by4'

This piece will eventually be a historical building on the bottom and a modern high-rise building on the top. I haven't had a lot of time as of late, but I will slowly work on it. :) The top of the building will have a slightly modern (Victorian) twist. 
I will add a restaurant in the center of the building with the park above.

The week in college/Stark series 2'by4'

The week in college
2'by4' 
The first thing I will say is that when I think about making art, I think about how it will be viewed years from now. I'm hoping to convey a concept or situation. The first thing I noticed in college was the building & just how many chairs there were. So many people and so many chairs, and that's how this piece began.
I took a short one-week college program in February, I explored  potential careers or programs I might enjoy learning. 
My past school experiences were quite harsh. This STARK piece reflects my fears, and anxiety of being in such a stressful environment once again......The black gouged sphere represents the so-called elephant in the room, The pressure, hopes and fears of students going to College in a somewhat uncertain future. 
Lol. I love my stark series! 


Personally I had a fantastic week in college. At the end I decided not to go to school but to find my dream job of being a high-rise window washer. Believe it or not I actually got the job!
Ps. One of these chairs is just a square. Maybe you can find it?
