Schomberg Street Gallery, Rhythm of Life Watercolours and other news

The weather was wonderful on Sunday for the Schomberg Street Gallery and we had many visitors. Thank you to everyone who popped by.

It's such a lottery with the weather at outdoor events that you can never plan what to actually take with you until the day before. As the weather was looking good I decided to take several matted and framed originals with me. I was very happy I did because two of them sold. 

On the theme of sales, my Rhythm of Life series are now back from exhibition and have all been released for sale on my website.  

So what else have I been up to?

As President of IWS Canada I had the pleasure of jurying the Canada 150 ways to celebrate competition over the last few weeks. With over 1450 entries to look through it has taken quite some time. I think all 4 jurors wished Canada was 350 years old so we could choose more finalists! I am currently making a video of the 150 selected finalists. There are some amazing works of art! IWS Canada will be announcing the finalists and winners in just over a weeks time on October 1st. 

I have also been working with several art associations and individuals planning some exciting workshops for the next two years here in Ontario. I have started to put details about them on my website Hope you will all enjoy the topics we have planned.

Hoping to get back to painting soon.
