Muskoka


This weekend I went up to Muskoka for the Annual Classic and Antique Boat Show. Basically it was an exhibit of amazing vintage boats, the type Scott Fitzgerald must’ve seen continuously as he wrote The Great Gatsby: “So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past…”

Muskoka is actually known for its cottages. Many people in Toronto go there as it’s a convenient 2-hour drive away from the city (without traffic, that is…). We went on a cruise around lake Muskoka and saw a few of these cottages, some were on islands by themselves, truly amazing.

While I was there I couldn’t help but get all excited about coming back to the city and painting a few of the boats we saw. These are just the first two of a series of boat-inspired paintings/drawings. Watch this space!

  1. Hola! Soy de las que está por aquí y nunca dice nada, pero hoy por fin he encontrado un rato para hacerme oficial. Vengo de Verde Bonito y ya he comprobado que todo lo que me recomienda Rocío es la pera. Un saludo

  2. Hola Maria, muchas gracias por tu mensaje! Me ha hecho mucha ilusion. Mi hermana Rocio es que es estupenda. Por cierto, me gusta mucho tu blog, y fijate que casualidad que he empezado a aprender a coser este mes. Hay un sitio en Toronto al lado de casa donde dan clases: http://www.theworkroom.ca/ Es una maravilla, no se si hay centros asi en Espana. Un abrazo, Araceli
