New Work

As mentioned, here are some quick pics of the new pieces that will be at the Fall Shows the next two weekends at
Galerie Harwood. Not the most glamorous shots but I'll fuss with that later....

The Season of "Busy"

But in this case "busy" translates into being creatively busy. Asked to create some Christmas cards for a new local stationary and art supply shop, I took to the task with enthusiasm. Here is one of the latest designs (I'll post a few more soon). This one
features a photo of a view known to Hudsonites as we drive along the Lake of Two Mountains and see the Oka church.
A lovely sight in any season. The bird, I have to admit is not native to our area, but was used for it's suitable color. Something
which I will tweak on the second go-around. The process is addictive as it starts out with hand painted papers followed by
some loose collage and scanned into Photoshop to continue digitally by adding the fonts. This is my little segue from
jewelry design and painting. (...as if I needed to segue!)

Fall Shows and Where to Find Me

I didn't realize that yesterday was my 100th blog post! Whoohoo....!
Not very articulate but it did catch me by surprise.....

I'm here to list the Fall Shows that I'll have my jewelry at starting with:

the 3rd Annual Christmas Artisan Sale at
Whitlock Golf and Country Club
128 Cote St. Charles,
Hudson, Quebec

November 15 and 16

followed by the next two weekends at the

Christmas Market and Craft Show
Galerie Harwood
3663 Rte. Harwood
Hudson, Quebec
November 22-23 & 29-30

Also at Galerie Mouche on Cameron in Hudson every weekend, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Although I am not present in the shop except on a sporadic basis. It is hosted by either Melissa or Anne who also have wonderful items in this gallery.

Time permitting, I'll post some previews of what will be for sale.....

Back in a Moment.......!

"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all." Stanley Horowitz

Been gone too long, preparing for Fall shows and catching up with commissions and falling leaves. Just thought I'd post this
quote by Stanley Horowitz that really sums up a Canadian autumn.
