Received a kind email asking if Kim & I would like to paint a message for the Frontline Workers. Yes of course, please send us more details. After a couple emails and a phone call later. The only question was when & where.
The two, 8 by 4 feet property for sale SOLD signs were removed from Base Line Rd E, across from Victoria Hospital and relocated to a suitable socially distant space.
Arrived shortly after 8:30 am and painted till about 3 pm.
Dear Frontline Healthcare Workers
Everyday Kim & I are shocked and delighted that we get to paint a massive mural at one of our favourite airports, London!!!
At the start of this project, we wanted to push ourselves and try complete within a month. With that being said, we've decided to adjust our painting schedule when the cafe/bar is only closed.
Let's be honest, nobody wants to hear the beeps of the sky jack when on vacay mode. We get it!!!
Thanks for all the Love & Support!

Happy with the progress.
Tonight I'm adding texture to the stones...
As with any project. Fresh creative problem solving, is always essential.
In this case?....
Translating proper perspective from a distance.
While I'm sure there are many ways, to go about doing so.
We decided to use a lazer pointer, to help guide main structural lines.
It's been working super awesome!
Better now than never, right?
We have so much to be Thankful for!
It really is true, what you believe you can conceive.
Not too long ago, Kim & I did a video on Facebook wanting to host painting parties in your space ...
Another day went by and an ad popped up for Culture Days. What is that?
"Culture Days is a nationwide weekend to celebrate arts and culture. Launched in 2010, this public engagement initiative aims to foster support for a diverse arts and culture community that is lived, created and expressed by all Ontarians."
After reading the website, we quickly sent an email to the L.A.C with our interest to participate in any way we can! We're so happy & grateful that we did.
Would you like to facilitate Community Murals for Culture Days? Of course we will!
Shane was able to create the mural he wanted to see on Friday.
From young to 92! Everyone can paint if you believe you can.
Peace. Love. Happiness.
We had such an awe-mazing time over the weekend!
To those that can't paint, we thought we couldn't do a 3 day event and look at us!
We got this and can't wait to do it again real soon.
Speaking of soon...
Find us at White Oaks Mall on October 26th from 11am - 4pm with another canvas.
YEAH!!! Stay tuned for more details.
Nature always has the best show!
