Paintings added to permanent collection of Toronto Public Library

I was thrilled to have the Toronto Public Library Special Collections get in touch with me this year and enquire about purchasing two paintings.

These are both recognizable locations in a nearby area of the city that was at one time the town of Leaside. The top piece is an old building at Todmorden Mills, which is now a public space. I deliberately distorted the perspective on this lovely old building, which had such pretty colors in the stucco.

The lower one is part of a cement plant, in the Leaside industrial park. I am very interested in these industrial spaces that are part of the city, as they are fast disappearing.

Both pieces are now in the permanent collection at the Toronto Reference Libary!
