Vlitma Ratio

Last Thursday night I went to meet Lyall for the opening reception of our friend Zack Woods “Vlitma Ratio” show at the Art Bar at the Gladstone Hotel.  I was really impressed by his paintings and you should go and check them out while you can.  His show runs Nov 17-30.

These are my favourite paintings from the show.  For all the paintings check out my Picasa

I finally got to meet Lyall’s girlfriend who thought I was a made up friend because we’d never met before.  I was supposed to meet up with them a few times when they were in Toronto but didn’t end up going so she started calling me Polkaroo :) Chaddy was there and it’s honestly been at least a year since I’ve seen him.  And of course Taylor and Zack’s gorgeous wife Janelle (who is the woman in the bloody nose painting).  It was so great to see and hang out with you guys!

We had Sunday dinner at the parents house.  It was fun, as always, and we had a very interesting discussion about lawyers.  It was noted by Mom that I should have been a lawyer because of my impressive arguing skills and the way I can make people see my point.  Amazingly enough I ended up as an Agent. haha

Instead of bringing out the albums of baby pictures, Mom went one better and brought out some of our old artwork.  Here are my paintings from 1987.

As you can tell, I was a very talented child.  I mean, just look at the sunglasses in the Bunny painting.  Pure talent.

I did not pursue art after this and my talent level is still on par with these masterpieces.  I would sell these, or maybe even donate to a gallery, but my mother will not let them out of her possession.

I’m ridiculous.

Happy Rainy Wednesday.
