It’s a long story how I ended up in Guelph this weekend, and I’ll share that with you another day. But we ended up at a lovely “french country” restaurant, called Artisanale. It was a really lovely place; very rustic and humble; and so welcoming. The thing is, what had me really swooning was their current painting installation. The artist, Janette Hayhoe, creates the most realistic paintings of very ordinary things. A humble sink; a shelf full of mason jars; a solitary chair against a window. The effect was so – calming. And beautiful. I was instantly charmed.
