I have finally completed the original style floor cloth that I began creating this winter. I am so pleased with the way they turned out. This one is just small….2′ x 3’…note there is no need for a hem when you apply several coats of paint.
Art you can walk on….Saturday at Jelly Massee’s gallery Art Gallery and Studio now open in the Pembroke Mews, 142 Pembroke Street West, Pembroke, Ontario
This is the beginning of a practice for a small barn quilt square that I worked on this winter.
Then I added the red which will be worked over thoroughly till I am satisfied with the look.
This is my new theme….. from my summer garden last year. I began by drawing it out with chalk, right on the canvas. Then I started to add colour.
My art works are now moving from the floor to the wall….for those who would tell me ….”I can’t walk on that…”
I will continue to post the progress and shape that this canvas takes.
Here are my ideas for this year….
This is the year to “join order and charm”
This is the year to “Be who I am”
My creativity is born “where darkness and light meet”
Give myself permission to market myself
Create a balance in my art life
I am really big on balance, I need it and need to remind myself of it always.
Beets and snow-peas.
Reading Deepak again….inspiration came from there I guess…funny! Having fun creating table-tops and floor cloths about my favorite ones.
Floor cloths on display in the gallery adjoining my studio. I am getting one ready to be created by the youth from Maison des Jeunes here on the island next week. It is triangular in shape and hopefully will go in front of their couch area. I’ll get help from a board member I hope. In the meantime I will just keep drawing….draw… draw…. draw…. Hey…check the shoe on the real foot!
I just couldn’t get started so I moved my work area to this window to work on illustrations for a new book.
The drawing is much easier when I can look up and see the water, catch a glimpse of the ducks or paddlers. It is a very tranquil sight that pleases me so.
I grew up in this town and spent much time traveling in and out of Montreal on the train that left this station. Great memories….
