Dundas West Museum Laneway

Located at the north laneway behind Dundas St. West, between Dufferin St. and Gladstone Ave. lies a beautiful grayscale portrait of a women smoking. The drip technique can be observed in this artwork, as the gracious expressions are elegantly placed in the composition.

Our community is blessed to have such great talent present. We thank the artist for his inspiration and art.
