About

Follow the tweets and journal entries of my last days. Live tweeting and journal entries from the period November 28, 1916 to July 21st, 1917.

My journal and live-tweets start once again on November 28th, 2013 when I return to the Shack in Toronto. I promise that this time around you’ll learn more of my days in Toronto, why I didn’t exhibit in the Ontario Society of Artists Exhibition and why I never became a member of the Art and Letters Club.

In the meantime, during the summer please follow my tweets from my readings, sketches and reflections. Some of my sketches that I plan to tweet have never been seen before in public. These were the lost, sold and stolen sketches from 1912-1917 that only now have begun to reappear. I found them after a long and hard search – attics, basements, sheds and behind bookshelves not moved in almost a century.

If you do wish to engage me or contact me, reply to my tweets @TTLastSpring , my blog entries at Ttlastspring.com , or send me an email at ttlastspring@gmail.com.

I can’t promise to tell you who I truly am but I’ll definitely do my best to tell you what Tom was thinking, sketching or reading.

Affectionately,

Tom Thomson’s Last Spring

  1. I found the following posted by @TTLastSpring on Twitter: “There are only two things in this world that can prevent me from painting: black flies and conscription.” As a specialist of black flies at the Royal Ontario Museum, I like to collect quotes about these creatures. Unfortunately, I was unable to find any context for this quote on your website (I assume it was in a letter to someone). Could you point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance,
