Plein Air at Ward’s Island

(submitted by Wally Lush)

On Tuesday, June 26, six artists took the ferry to Ward’s Island for a plein air session. The Weather was glorious with warm sunshine and balmy breezes wafting from the lake – a perfect day. The artists had a choice of locations. The Toronto skyline offered a striking backdrop to the sailboats moored along the water’s edge. The flower gardens included coral coloured geraniums and beautiful white peonies in full bloom. Cookies and coffee were provided by the Sunshine Center. The group met for lunch at about 12:30 and some even enjoyed BBQ hamburgers. All and all a very enjoyable day.
