No Courtroom Drama in Milton

Just finished at the courthouse...after waiting for a very long time they ushered the potential jurors into a larger courtroom and the judge gave us a deep bow--and told us that our services were no longer needed. That is the second-deepest bow I've ever received... The other was the one at the Japanese restaurant yesterday. Two in two days. Zwei!

That's it for "another three years" said our handlers. They were all smiles.

Above is a photo of the sky while I was walking towards downtown Milton. (The courthouse for my area is located in this town.) It reminds me of the northern Lauren Harris paintings, and wonder if such meteorological events inspired him.

Last week a friend and I met up in Toronto to go to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) and after discussing the upcoming exhibitions (Picasso, and Frida & Diego) I decided to get a membership + guest. Of course we didn't go far into the gallery before we we deeply drawn to the Canadian artists, including Harris. We even had a sneak peak at the Picasso works--blocked off to the public while they were being hung. C wanted to see the Inuit sculptures and African exhibit, and we quickly took a tour of the new parts of the AGO. Too bad a lot of the modern works I saw at the grand opening are no longer on display.

Now I'm chillaxing (it's cold today!) at a Thai restaurant downtown. I walked past a few buildings. Here are some photos.

The Anglican Church. It is a beautiful building, and unfortunately closed went I tried to take a peak.

The church's windows. I love the stonework, and I'm sure the stained glass must be beautiful.

View of Downtown Milton (the Thai restaurant is across from the spire, the Presbyterian church).

The old Town Hall.

I guess I'll wander around a bit before I can take the GO bus home.

Great photos.

Have you ever seen the Group of Seven gallery at the National Gallery in Ottawa? It was inspiring. They had a lot of the mini-canvases they painted when they were in the wildreness. They would bring these home and paint their larger canvases all winter long.

No, I don't think I've been to the National Gallery...or, if I have been there, it was a very long time ago. I have been to the Kleinberg gallery, however, and the AGO had SO many examples if their work--including many of Tom Thompson's smaller studies. </p>

Another artist they had on display was the Winnipeg artist William Kurulek, whom my mother loved (she's from Transcona, now part of Winnipeg). C and I scoured his and Krieghiff's paintings, as they provided so much detail...
