Hop with me to the Lucky Rabbit this Weekend in Annapolis Royal (Nov 30 – Dec 2)

Join in the parade of lights down Main Street Friday night, Nov 30,  in Annapolis Royal, have a cup of cocoa with Santa, and then come on down to the best most beautiful house full of exquisite fine craft and art that you ever will see, from 6 – 9 pm.
Or join us on Saturday Dec 1 from 10 – 4, when the whole town will be bustling with holiday markets, plus the farmers market…you’ll need a tour guide!
Finally, we are open Sunday afternoon from 1 – 4 pm for your pleasure or return visit. This lovely group of talented artists takes the cake…and we’re not just bragging!

That’s the Lucky Rabbit House at 15 Church Street.

I’m so excited and honoured to be invited to show at Lucky Rabbit’s Holiday Market this weekend.
Larry and I filled a room with our works today and we’ve had a sneak preview of Deb Kuzyk’s hot-out-of-the-kiln pottery, Janelle’s leather work, Marianne’s silver jewellery, Kim’s Tartans, Donna’s paintings, Jay’s stained glass and more. I wish I had photos of it all for you to see. The work is stunning and well worth the visit.

There are 6 rooms in the Lucky Rabbit House and this one is filled with my paintings and Larry’s metal work.

A selection of my acrylic paintings from this past glorious, hot summer in Nova Scotia are on display until Nov 30 at Sissiboo Coffee Bar and Gallery in Annapolis Royal.

On these chilly, blustery days, I hope my paintings will serve as reminders of the heat and vibrancy of summer.

You can also view all the paintings here.

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.

Over 10 years ago, on my very first visit to the Annapolis Valley, I wandered into the Lucky Rabbit Pottery Store in Annapolis Royal. I was blown away.
