Afternoon on Queen Street West

Bill and I went for a walk on Queen Street West last Saturday with our friend Shelley Savor.
We fortified ourselves with a good lunch at our beloved Beaver.
It was mild for February in Toronto. The day was in a good mood.
We always visit Inabstracto when we can. Today there were small, very interesting, inexpensive paintings by the clearly talented Byron Hodgins.
We thought these looked very collectible. Still might bite.
 Nice wire sculpture ["Necklace" by Lisa Neighbour, wire, plugs, sockets. 7 feet long -- information added 25 March 17] in Katharine Mulherin's window. Now our whole walk was centred on seeing her new Keiran Brennan-Hinton paintings -- and they were so fun that I didn't take a picture to show you -- sorry! See the Mulherin gallery post.
Further east on Queen I liked the windows of the discount appliance store at Fennings Street.
Their hard-edge aesthetic is irresistible.
The crossing at Ossington was also irresistible.
By the time we got to Pink Optical I fell in love with Bill and Shelley all over again.
We suddenly realized that we had completely walked past Dovercourt and so had missed Lynne McIlvride and Ann Cummings at the David Kaye Gallery. We walked back and I caught a quick snap of a Cummings sculpture. Exhibition continues to February 26th.
On our way home we flew past Trinity Bellwoods Park.
