Thanksgiving Coffee and Final Weekend of Art Show – Sat Oct 10, 2 – 4 pm

This is the final weekend for my Summer Garden show of paintings in Bear River.
I’ll be at the café sipping a latte and I hope you can join me on Saturday, Oct 10 from 2 -4.
for my last meet-up at this location.

I think this may be the best collection of pieces that I’ve ever put together for an exhibition.

Social distancing is in effect and the numbers have been low enough for everyone to feel safe.

Let me show you a 1 min video of the creation of “Summer’s Bounty”.  I think the warm orange tones in this painting make it my Thanksgiving painting.

Some of the paintings move to Sissiboo Café in Annapolis Royal and will be on display from Friday October 16 until the end of November.

I haven’t planned any yet, but please let me know if you are interested in a meet-up with me in Annapolis.

And finally, THANK YOU to all who have and will come out to see what I’ve been up to; to those who have supported my art journey through social media, purchasing paintings, through your comments, your words or by just showing up.

And a big thanks to Erin and Jon Welch who have created a beautiful space at 2 Sissiboo Coffee Bar and Gallery locations with delicious coffee in which to enjoy the artworks and company of others.

You can see all my exhibited paintings here.

I created these scenes for the Bear River Holiday Spirit Craft Show and Sale on Sat, November 30, (from 10 – 4.) They are perfect for framing and are a standard size. The images are 5.5″ x 7’5″.  They can be used as cards. Continue reading

Hanging the Show with my True Love

Last night we (Larry) hung the show and I’ve made a little movie of it for you.

I’m dashing out the door for a couple of days with him on Brier Island and will resume sending you images on Monday.

Larry has been my support in my art journey since we met in our 20’s. His love and encouragement have lifted me for many years.
