Gloomy Sunday..er, I mean Wednesday

Today it is rather dreary day in Toronto which disappoints me a great deal. I had hopes of photographing a few things and the sunshine that streams through my front window on beautiful days is a must for this scenario. I have had a lovely afternoon despite the gloom. I made banana bread (mum's recipe), did some painting, some blogging and this evening I am going to view the Surrealist exhibit at the AGO with my brother, Aidan. Afterwards, my buddy ol' pal of a brotha is cooking me dinner!! I'm really looking forward to the show!
Ciao for now!

With Love II; mixed media

Unfortunately some of the details aren't visible in these photographs. I was able to incorporate my love of rusty objects in this piece. :)
