When you paint any subject,

country western. Do these variations and you may find your own
style amongst them, but with a new twist.
Gabor's Blog ...
will be meeting with Janet Burgess who is going to Hungary to
spend some creative time in an artist colony near Lake Balaton. I will
attempt to give her an idea of Hungarian Life and Customs...Received
the latest issue of Canadian Art Magazine, it has a couple of
great articles to read: Rebecca Belmore and Mark Kingwell.
John Bentley Mays waffles on about Agnes Martin, but we
can always learn something more about the Minimalists...I am reading:
The Diaries of Paul Klee 1898-1918 and Bill Bryson's *Short
History of Nearly Everything*, both books are the type one can
read a few pages then take a rest...New on Markham Street: My
new tenant Andy Taylor in the Front Room of the Gallery is
moving in slowly with his CD and Records Store...A lovely Japanese
Woodblock Print by Kunisada was the last sale as a wedding present
to a young couple where the husband is Japanese and the wife is
English...Recently I have enjoyed talking to my friend in Hungary
using the Skype Technology, it's telephone through the
computer, sometimes though the voices are interrupted and resume
seconds later, when it gets too bad, we switch to a chat mode of
typing...one can eat one's lunch while the other one works out his
answer...We are planning to go to the AGO, I have to renew our
membership. The ROM construction is proceeding nicely, it looks
like it is designed to withstand a nuclear attack, so much
steel...will there be space for the artifacts?
From Csopi's Garden...
Csopi Mezei loves her garden and Gabor
loves to take pictures of the rare blooms that also present an
opportunity for painting. Watch this spot for year round reports
on the garden conditions, you will be surprised about the variety such
a small piece of land produces.
From Gabor's Easel...
To find a dead butterfly or a fallen
flower gives Gabor an idea how their beauty can continue although
transformed in a piece of artwork. Collage and assemblage are a great
way to achieve a lasting tribute to the beauty that nature provides.
