You may recall my last entry about this great couple out in Rockwood who owns "Second hand shop"! I have a few more treasures to post, including an old Oak Arts and Crafts hall stand in mint condition. First and most importantly I wanted to announce that Vija Francis-Celmins,from Latvia, and incredibly talented artist will be displaying her artwork at the CAMH-workman arts in Toronto. The exhibition is called "Being Scene" and is dedicated to people suffering from depression and other ailments of that nature. Vija was a brilliant physicist and mathematician until her true love for what she does took over, which steered her into the life she now owns. This is a serious matter and we hope that this event will bring lots of attention especially on Vija! This painting was gracefully given to me today as a gift. It has been a long time since I have received such a meaningful gift.. Why? because she wanted me to have a piece of her life.. one that she shed way back, one that used to belong to someone else. It is an intensily personal watercolour with a lot meaning behind it. A lot of emotions went into it. Thankfully, Vija is strong and happy now and only does good for others!.....Thank you, I will cherish it forever!...
Here are a few other treasures I found there today:
