Trio just begun
These three are destined for the Lambeth Art Association Show, which will be the beginning of May this year, as are several others you're about to get a sneak peek at.
I've been a busy busy girl, not only do I have a bunch of shows coming up..."tis the season"...but I'm in overdrive getting work ready for my museum solo which is just a year away. That sounds like lots of time, but I need at least 12-15 new works for it, all the while keeping my galleries and guilds 'fed'.
I have the supports, I've been working up sketches, the terraskin is here, so NO volunteering for extra duties this year... which I find hard to remember!
Ready for the LAA show
Sparta Line Spring, 12x12, $190. I like to tootle along the country roads, trusty sketch book by my side. I look for patterns in the land that tell stories. One of my favorite geographical features is the misfit stream, a tiny creek that was once a raging river fed by melting glaciers.
Don's Dang Hill. 12x12. $190. Farmers like my neighbour Don, may curse these remnants, but they tell a story of climate change that is playing out again. This time humans are at the helm, where do we steer the story? Only time will tell.
Mother Tree, 12x12, $190.This grand old lady's fate also rests in our hands. Her trunk has a hole where generations of owls have fledged. She had a sister just up the road a piece, who was felled last summer, let's hope she doesn't meet the same fate.
Antler River Spring, 12x12,$190. Spring floods often carve whole new landscapes, we can fight it, but in the end water will always win. Hence the importance of preserving flood plains, like this one just outside of Delaware.
Next month just before the show, I'll send you peeks of the other work I'll be putting into it, plus whatever else I have on the go.
And..... I'm pleased to tell you that two of the three mini paintings I put into the Portside Gallery Miniature Show found new homes. Thank you Portside!!
Beach Breeze is still available, and I'll be taking it to the Art Emporium in Port Stanley, where you can purchase it, or contact me directly.
Beach Breeze 4x4, $75.
Until next month
