Everything Old is New Again

WELL. If you’ve been following my blogs, you will know I have had a really hard time focusing on work for my upcoming show with Jennifer Trefiak. I’ve been distracting myself with other projects (like my Ontario paintings for the July show, or personal projects like the Northern Lights, or film photography, or writing moreContinue reading “Everything Old is New Again”

When Art Becomes Work

It has been a very interesting month for me. As I’ve mentioned, I have a show to set up in Campbellford the first week in May, and I’ve been trying to tie up a lot of loose ends on old works of art, and have also been pulling old pieces back out to sell. ThisContinue reading “When Art Becomes Work”

Bittersweet Completion

It’s hard to believe I’m coming to the end of this three-and-a-half month stretch of painting for my Canada Project and show.  Bittersweet. What an artistic learning curve this project has been. I made sure to give myself LOTS of time to explore these landscapes, because I wanted to add depth to my work andContinue reading “Bittersweet Completion”

Sick Day = Paint Day

Well after a week of feeling a bit “off” I lost my voice last night, and it has yet to return. For those of you who do not know, I am a yoga teacher by trade and losing my precious voice meant cancelling classes today. I spent most of the day resting, but finally IContinue reading “Sick Day = Paint Day”

Christmas (show) Countdown

December is almost here, and this weekend seems to be kicking off the Christmas season. We made a gingerbread house, the Christmas lights go on in Cobourg tonight, and tomorrow we will be hitting up Christmas at St.Mark’s and the Santa Clause Parade in Port Hope. But for me, I’m over half way through myContinue reading “Christmas (show) Countdown”

2018 Art Calendar

Well, what a learning curve! I finally decided to try and make an art calendar. Talk about being pushed beyond my comfort zone. I do as much business as possible locally. I do as much IN PERSON as possible. I dislike ordering bulk of anything, without seeing and feeling the first trial run of aContinue reading “2018 Art Calendar”

Summer Fun

Another art show was a success; and as always I’m left feeling so grateful and humbled from it. Last year our show “Earth and Sky”  brought friends out from Toronto to Belleville. This year our show “Vast Lands” brought old friends, some who I hadn’t seen in over a decade! I even met a newContinue reading “Summer Fun”

Vast Lands ~ Art Show

The show is inspired by Canada’s water, land and skies. Paintings will include landscapes from the Great Lakes, Georgian Bay, Frontenac, Gatineau, andContinue reading “Vast Lands ~ Art Show”

A Year In Review

One year ago, I held my first private art show “Two Days In Jasper.” It was a very small show, only 7 canvases (only 5 completed), quite experimental in my new style. The show gave me a positive push into 2016  when I received my first commissioned piece (along with 3 others this year). ItContinue reading “A Year In Review”

Canadian Landscapes

WELL. I’m struggling to start this blog entry. A week ago today, I returned from a 9 day trip across Canada. I have a friend who moved to Vancouver, so we drove her car out west and then I flew home. Holy memories! We have been friends for 27 years (we met when were 10Continue reading “Canadian Landscapes”
