Mosaic Monday - Art on Windows


On Saturday I attended the District 5 AGM for the Ontario Horticultural Society.
 Two wonderful speakers, a flower show and a delicious lunch.
Bruni Nielsen a local artist had some of her paintings for sale.
Instead of canvas she uses old windows. 

This month I have been taking another photography class, Lensbaby Magic
with the Perfect Picture School of Photography. I have not taken the lens off all month,
practise makes perfect my Mom always told me.

Mary at Little Red House hosts Mosaic Monday.
Thank you Mary!!!

Nice photos.

Oh I needed a closer look at these lovelies. The light through the glass must make them look extraordinary.

Hi Jen
My AGM was the same day and it's always a lot of fun.
Painting on old windows is a nice way to repurpose them.
Good luck with perfecting your skills with the lens baby.

You must have had a lovely day.
I love to see how artists use the everyday or the unexpected to create something beautiful.
