Labyrinths within Labyrinths – Wading Pool Labyrinth – Christie Pits Park – Toronto

Many of my Labyrinths include canvas spaces at the turn-arounds for additional artwork. Often I create or paint smaller Labyrinths within the canvas spaces within the larger Labyrinth.

When a little older, kids on skateboards may go round and round and round my wading pool Labyrinths. One boarder told me how my Labyrinth lines help in […]
