Hi folks! This is my first blogging notation. I’m a new member and happy to be included into your organization.
Yesterday, during a persistant downpour there was a moat around my barn studio as I nervously watched the tidal waves slowly rising up to my studio and shaking the old structure to it’s core. I’m about six metres from the water’s edge and this deluge didn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. Even a bedraggled, lone seagull was tapping at my window trying to get in out of the downpour! Now today, it’s sunny and clear, and the building still stands albeit minus a few shingles.That’s the way it goes here in Passamaquoddy Bay. If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute and it’ll change!
Jean Eng’s painting “Bonsai Minute” is included in “Animalia” an exhibition of animals in the Archives of Ontario. The show currently runs indefinitely— at least until 2021. The Archives of Ontario’s newest exhibit explores our changing relationships with other animals and how these species have left their mark on Ontario’s history.

The sheer spectacle of these pine trees growing from a crevice in solid granite rock at Bon Echo Provincial Park for 200 years is a testimony to natures endurance and will to survive. STUART BLOWER, OSA – 2018.
