The third and final work dedicated to the vaccination efforts worldwide.
Vaccination – Booster
30” x 40”
Acrylic on Canvas
So many have been incredibly patient while I toil through our current situation but eventually persistence pays off.
Here today we have “Vaccination #2” measuring 30” x 40” on canvas.
Tried as I may it became apparent that there’s nothing which can be done to make this piece better.
Perhaps I’m jumping ahead of myself using that title. My enthusiasm comes from having everything set up and ready for painting tomorrow, all other tasks out of the way and weather conditions predicted that couldn’t be better.
There are a couple of creative ideas rolling around that I’m eager to try so all tools and materials are at the ready.
If my brain is even half functioning by the end of day tomorrow I’ll provide progress photos as proof that the day wasn’t wasted eating nachos and watching realty TV.
Just finished this piece and couldn’t hold off releasing it. Certainly the painting is a slight deviation from my usual practices but hey; I’m an Abstract Artist!!

Given another favourable day for outdoor art and the time was not wasted. Tomorrow should be similar before a colder front moves in but I can’t complain; originally it was thought that all this productivity would have to wait another 3-4 weeks. I’ll just take what I can get as it comes along.
Good weather and a free schedule has made today productive indeed.
Okay, perhaps the title is over the top and dramatic but today’s schedule so far has felt close to it.
After fulfilling duties this morning helping an older couple up came the idea of driving downtown on a quest for hidden art supplies not apparent to your average internet user. Hey, some of the best ideas can come out of wandering downtown.
Eventually wound up on Spadina Avenue which is famous for it’s vast selection of practically everything under the sun. Some items can’t be found anywhere else in the city! First stop was “The Collective” where they specialize in spray paint and related materials. If I can’t pour it or throw it I may as well as spray it. Next was “Gwartzman’s” an art supply store I first stepped into 40 years ago. Only minor changes have occurred in that time so it was certainly a trip to the past. They carry anything and everything art related but today I settled for more conventional materials.
Before heading out there was a storefront which read “House of Cannabis”. Needless to say the establishment needed further study purely for “research” purposes. Who would have thought research could be so expensive? To be frank, I believe in thoroughly understanding a subject to it was/is an intensive effort.
There are still a few hours of sunlight remaining to at least get a little painting done. A full day with the canvas is planned tomorrow. Fingers crossed that the warmer days stay with us!
Taking my weekend plans, which includes an intensive search for painting materials, now would be as good a time as any to once again reflect on an effort from just last year. Back when paint was still plentiful and the sun warm.
