Lots of sketches
Ok so technically this is on my work table, not my easel.
Hubby, Studio Dog and I have just returned from our annual snowbird trek to South Carolina. We have a teeny tiny RV and a powerful desire to escape at least part of the winter, so away we go.
Because said RV is very teeny tiny, I sketch. I've tried painting, but imagine two people living in a space the size of the average bathroom with a very large dog, and you'll understand why that was an epic fail.
Now we're back I've started the process of turning these into hangable art.
Terraskin paper has been prepped, backgrounds are underway... let the art begin!
February is the start of the art show season. I have three 4x4" mini's ready for the Portside Gallery Mini Show.
The View From Here,
The show runs March 1-31. Portside Gallery, 187-1/2A Main St Port Stanley, Ontario, Canada, and is always stunning.
I'm pleased to be included in the St Thomas Art Crawl once again. I'll be located at the Library 153 Curtis St, St Thomas Ontario. This is the 6th year for this popular event, and my 5th year as a participant.
The popular winter celebration of local arts and culture invites people to explore venues throughout St. Thomas and meet talented local artists engaging in the creative process.
A free Arts Crawl passport is available at participating venues and helps crawlers locate the venues and artists they'd like to explore over the two-day event on February 22nd and 23rd.
Megan Pickersgill the event coordinator says "Something exciting we’re seeing is the increase in special activities Artisan food, cultural dance, music, steampunk, a bonfire, and acrobats! You never know what’s going to pop up when and where so it’s going to be a pleasant surprise for Crawlers to experience all these different forms of creativity.”
The After Dark – a post-Crawl celebration, and an event that can be enjoyed on its own – is being held Saturday night at the CASO Station. Here, experience a special art event featuring Kelly Wilson or some virtual reality while munching from Salt and Pepper’s Taco Bar, before sitting down to the tunes of Deni Gauthier, The Shangles and Chris Casserly.
The passport, containing information on both the venues and the artists, is available at participating venues and downloadable on the Railway City Arts Crawl website. Each venue will stamp the passport and if the participant reaches 10 venues, they are eligible for a prize draw.
And in case you're wondering if Big Beach Tree's made it to the St Thomas Guild Show....
Yes I got it done in time, and it found a new home :)
Until next month
