Spruce on Parliament

Did you have a great

Even before the weekend actually began, we attended the opening of Spruce on Parliament. I totally love their vision and their sense of display!

Elements unified through colour and/or shape are set up as compositions ready for a photo shoot. Somehow that isn't too surprising as Tara Sameshima, one of the owners, is a photographer.

As it was evening, the light wasn't the greatest to work with, never mind that the place was jam-packed with guests. 

My work was beautifully displayed in a way that clearly showed an innate understanding of what it is about. I can't tell you  how nice that felt.

Spruce is in Cabbagetown, an old neighbourhood in Toronto's east end. Beautiful homes and parkland  where the old Riverdale farm is located just a little further east.

Congratulations, Tara and Kim
