Summer is here!

NEA_1437You know those precious weeks of summer are officially here when the calendar begins to quickly fill up. Remember to slot some time in for relaxing. We get so busy running around scheduling fun that we are often exhausted by the end of it.

Here are a few photos of a custom canvas I created for the wonderful Gillian. She gave me a few requests, and then left the rest up to me. I was honoured. After learning a bit about her life & plans, I got to work. I hope that as she views this piece over time, she will keep noticing little things I have layered onto the canvas.

Purple Turtle Art Festival

I can’t believe that we are already mid-way through July! I have been a little computer & camera lazy lately, but that does not mean I have not been creating!

Here is a peek at some of my new canvases that will be at the Purple Turtle Art Festival this weekend, July 13-14.

Home

home 8×10

I love making these “home” canvases. I am really into making sure I put a bird on it & adding lollipop trees.

mermaid 16×20

My mermaid on the rock was a canvas I experimented with right before the OOAK Art Show in the spring, and they all sold out right away. So I have made 2 more, but they are pretty labour intensive. I have decided to also offer these as 8×10 prints.

buddha 8×10

This is a pretty funky buddha. I have been experimenting with paint and I was inspired by artist Juliette Crane when I created this background.

lotus flower 16x20

lotus flower 16×20

The lotus is a symbolic flower that seems to lend itself to many of the phrases that I chose for canvases.

This looks like it’s going to be a great weekend. If you are looking for something to do or you are in the area, drop by this awesome event located on the fabulous grounds of The Briar’s Resort, Jackson’s Point.  Come see amazing artwork by over 35 local artists, and enjoy a lunchtime BBQ by The Briar’s. Saturday 11am-6pm & Sunday 11am-4pm. Free Admission.
