“An interesting maze in a Toronto park.” – Grange Park Labyrinth – Downtown Toronto

This is the moment I arrived in the Centre after finishing painting a Sky Blue Heart into each of the Aglets of the Labyrinth.

The presence of Hearts transforms the experience and meaning of walking The Labyrinth.

This remains true even for me, the Labyrinth’s maker!

“A little reminder of home…” – Labyrinth – Augusta Avenue – Kensington Market – Toronto

The Street Labyrinth I painted one month ago is holding up pretty well on Augusta Avenue in Kensington Market.

I might leave it as is and not re-paint until it really fades . . .

“Labyrinths on our Morning Walk” – Labyrinth Pier – Granville Island – False Creek Seawall – Vancouver

White and Orange Labyrinths on Labyrinth Pier, Vancouver . . .

My intention was to paint at least five and possibly seven very different Labyrinth Designs, each a different colour.

I was only able to complete four of them.

These two remain visible and walk-able.

Water Filled – Wading Pool Labyrinth – Sir Casimir Gzowski Park Playground – Sunnyside Beach – Toronto

Haven’t returned to Sir Casimir Gzowksi Park since I recently re-painted my Labyrinth in the Wading Pool.

Wonderful to see how well the colours work with the wading pool filled with water !

“Orange maze.” – Labyrinth Pier – Granville Island – False Creek Seawall – Vancouver

This Labyrinth was originally going to be painted yellow.

Instead, I chose Orange as an impulse buy at the paint store.

It worked out well.

This long exposure confirms it . . .

Look closely in the top left of the image.

You can make out the Heart Labyrinth I painted in Red.

The red paint has since faded,

Nevertheless, this long exposure re-reveals it !

“Starting today with a couple museums and walking the neighbourhoods of Toronto…” – Grange Park Labyrinth – Downtown Toronto

The Labyrinth I painted in Grange Park back in April was removed only days before my World Labyrinth Day City of Labyrinths Jane’s Walk.

Many people expressed to me how disappointed they were after it was removed.

This past Sunday I painted a New Grange Park Labyrinth.

I stuck with the colour blue, to match the giant Blue cladding of the Art Gallery of Ontario.

New design is also round instead of my previous unique rectangular-ish path, which you can see the top of in this first image . . .

This round Blue Labyrinth Design in line of sight of the Art Gallery of Ontario in Downtown Toronto is the exact same design of the Multi-Colour Labyrinth I painted in Robson Square in Downtown Vancouver.
