What an incredibly creative year. 2017 brought seven custom projects, prints selling in a Nova Scotia Art Gallery, two successful art shows, my first calendar project; it also brought more depth and meaning to my work.
Canada: The Provinces and Territories was a wonderful success. I have now sold 8 out of the 12 completed paintings (4 are still for sale), and the 13th one is still a work in progress:
Paintings ($250 each, 12 x 16 inches Acrylic on Gallery Canvas):
$5 each or 5 for $20
OTHER LOCAL TALENT
Spirit Of The Hills is a local art community I joined when I first started giving my art serious focus. It’s a great way to network with other artists in the Northumberland area, as well get updates and opportunities to show your art with others. This year I hope to work with some larger canvases (and complete the hoodoos I’ve been working on for months) so I have something to contribute to these shows. If anyone knows of any juried shows coming up in 2018, I might give them a try for the first time too.
I discovered some of Les Robling‘s work in November, and was so excited to purchase one as part of my personal art collection. It looks great with the Lucy Manley painting I bought last year!
Jennifer Trefiak and I will be plotting our annual summer show soon. In the meantime you can find her “inks” in Colborne at Polish House and Home, or contact her directly if you want to view her paintings or purchase a last minute Christmas Ornament!
Now that the big show is done and over with, I have a few older pieces I want to complete, along with a new vision for a project of smaller paintings of the Northumberland Area, and a few more from my Ontario travels.
I will have time in the New Year to start some custom art too, if anyone is interested in having a special piece made. Quotes are free, so don’t be shy to just inquire!
Looking forward to sharing 2018 with you all!
