Abundance, The July Garden

When there are days, as my Mother used to say, "the world is going to hell in a hand basket", I take refuge in the garden. And this year despite the dry and then torrential rains with hail, she has rewarded me abundantly. These photos are the studio garden, a sloped area facing north.

The Day Becomes

I haven't liked the worlds news this week; actually for the past several weeks, and so this morning we decided to just watch the sun rise. No talk of politics, no monkey mind, [easier said than done], just sit and drink coffee and watch the day become.

New Directions


About 6 months ago I was approached by a company in Montreal, Dei Neri,]Link here] about working with them on a innovative idea called stand'ART, that allows art to be placed any where in a home or out side, no need for walls. The other exciting thing for me was the printing would be on plexiglass, a material I have longed to print on but never had the nerve, as it would mean a lot of adjustments to my printer. So for the show at Galerie Art Plus we decided to print 2 works, one translucent which gives about 70 % of the color and one with a black backing which gives about 90 % of the color. It's really exciting for me to see and to start to sense where these may lead.

Under Construction / En construction

Here are a few installation photos of the show "Under Construction" at Galerie Art Plus, before it got too busy. And yesterday Facebook reminded me that I had posted photos of "The Voice of the Line" my exhibition 2 years ago at Galerie Art Plus, and for me, a very good memory . [Link here]

Celebrating

On this gray, drizzly day come on out and celebrate the 2nd anniversary of Galerie Art Plus, the vibrant and dynamic exhibition space created by Brigite and Peter when they bought and renovated the lovely white clapboard former United Church. Congrats Brigite and Peter and thanks so much for this wonderful addition to cultural life in Sutton.

And the vernissage for my exhibition 'Under Construction" is also this afternoon from 2 pm.  It would be lovely to see you.

All Packed

All packed and ready to deliver to the gallery, hopefully before the rain, and hopefully the big box of the large prints fits in the car. Otherwise it's on to Plan B, which isn't formulated yet.


The big box, already to go, 2016

And the small ones, ready too, 2016

June Promise

A perfect June morning, clear, sharp light, cool temperature and coffee on the terrace watching the dew-covered peonies begin to open.

Studio Walls

There are times when an image, a shape, a line just won't let you go, and so you talk and listen and play and print. The studio walls change every few days as the conversation shifts left, right up, down. It's quite the ride.
