In the studio, listening to Mose Alison and drawing my heart out....what a life

Hello world!

I have been trying unsuccessfully to get into my site and blog but this time it worked. I have no idea why!

Having a very busy summer. I taught a workshop on floor cloths, attended the Artists in Residency Program and have been chosen to attend (CPAWS) Canadian Parks and Wilderness’s Art Camp on the Dumoine River. I am  really looking forward to it. I have been drawing and painting so I will be loosened up for it. I am actually keeping an art journal again.

Work that was produced from the Residency program is showing at “Art Brulant and Impressions” gallery in Shawville.

Muriel Davies and I have a second children’s book at the publisher and the proof is in the mail as I type this. Exciting!


Pontiac Artists in Residence program.

Peter carved this beauty with a chainsaw….very fine work and makes it look so easy….

 


CPAWS Art Camp I have been chosen to spend a week up in the wilds of the Dumoine River to paint outdoors. I am so excited! The staff stopped by my studio/gallery today to update me on their plans as they were on their way there. It was really inspiring for me. Thanks girls and John.


Summer of 2017

Well here we are again and I have finished illustrating the second children’s book. “Fang’s kittens at the fair” is the title that Muriel and I  are going with at the moment. This may change though….We are checking out different publishing companies and will decide who to go with  but nothing is set as yet.

I have moved into the studio / gallery in Swisha and the rain just will not let up…..?? climate change??

I am practicing watercolor more and trying to keep up a journal of it all.

I’ll post more later and hopefully photos of the season’s involvements from my ipad.

Great to be back!Summer art_2015 085

 


The Dumoine River

Book Dumoine

Wally’s book on the Dumoine River is a great read telling of its history . I have one on display in the gallery.


April 1st….got stung once!!

I’ts a few days later ….April 3rd as I was unable to do anything with photos….I believe I have figured it out though. I have been working in the studio and decided to approach my art daily again….finally….It’s working out well for a week now. Lots getting done.

Working on the “Beyond the Bag” or” Au dela du Sac”  exhibition which is held each May at Art Brulant & Impressions. It’s fun! I have discovered this show called “from the basement” on CRACkLE. Listening to this great music which gives me the energy to create in ways I had not dreamed of. It’s all good!! Look for this same card ….only change will be the year! (Haven’t got the photo thing figured out yet! lolBey Bag_ FC 017
