I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted. It's not quite two months, but seems longer because I have been so busy. I have been exhibiting in a couple of shows at the FCA Gallery in Vancouver; set up a prospective solo show at the Osoyoos Art Gallery, hopefully for next year, although haven't heard the date yet; in the midst of organizing our annual Art in the Garden Show with my art group; got both myself and the group juried into Artwalk 2015 in September; waiting for results for another show in Vancouver; waiting to submit to a couple of art shows in Vancouver; waiting to ship a couple of paintings to Calgary for a national show with the Society of Canadian Artists; and working on putting the finishing touches to a sale with an international client. I'm also working on another piece in my Costa Rica series. I had posted a couple of work-in-progress photos of it, to show the fact that I really do work on black canvas. It's a very interesting piece and when it's done it will be posted with everything I can say about it. I'm really stoked about the Costa Rica series!
In the middle of all this, I even managed to take a quick holiday down to Tacoma, Washington. Saw Chihuly's glass blowing studio and watched the guys at work; rode the monorail, that was great!; checked out Pike's Place Market, it's way and way bigger than I ever thought it was; did the Spaceneedle, really enjoyed that; and even took a little ferry ride. Our friends celebrated Canada Day here with us and so we spent July 4th weekend with them. It was great fun. We ate some delicious fresh salmon and clam chowder, drank some great wine, and had an awesome time! And now it's back to work!
In the next week or so the art group is going to have a paint-out at one of our members home. We all always manage to get a small painting completed and we eat lunch together and have a great time. We will also nail down final plans for the summer art in the garden show while we are all together that day. We are all really looking forward to that show. When we have the poster ready we will post it on our event page on our website and as an event on facebook.
Now I'm off to get some work done, but may have to post again soon. Things change that fast!
I am new at this blog business, but I want to share what I am doing with you. I will add my activities as they happen and show you what I do each day. And, hopefully, I'll get some painting done.
