…join Nancy Merrill in her Photo a Week Challenge
I really didn’t think I had anything to share for this challenge until I remembered that the Humber College buildings that we pass almost daily on our walks were used eons ago for the movies.
The building that I’ve photographed was was originally on the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital grounds and was used as the headquarters of the police academy for the movie. The actual building appeared in Police Academy 1 (1984), 3 and 4. The series starred Steve Guttenberg and Kim Cattrall.
Today the grounds were bought up by Humber College and all the buildings, except the one used in the movie have been restored and are now used as classrooms and offices.
…..now that we’ve officially had our first snow storm most of the trees have been stripped of their leaves
I’ve always been a huge fan of bark. I love the texture, the subtle colours and the interesting lines that bark produces.

….I finished my on-line course this week
I really enjoyed this on-line class with Diane Culhane. I don’t always finish all the assignments but for some reason this class held my interest and the assignments didn’t inhibit me. Carla Sonheim really has a knack for finding amazing art instructors for her on-line classes.
The last three days of this six-day class involved painting on gessoed paper, a textured wood panel and glazed canvas and making glazes with acrylic paint. All the compositions consisted of table top still life arrangements that we had to create. Here are my creations in the order that I finished.
