A Golden Walk

Yesterday while visiting friends we walked part of their land. It was glorious; the light, the smell of fall with pine needles underfoot, leaves drifting down, milk weed blowing open its' pods, a golden blaze of glory.

More Maquettes

I seem to be just a bit obsessed lately, now up to 57 of these maquettes. Distraction therapy from the American election?

Maquettes 1

Last spring, during the renovation, I kept some odds and ends of off-cuts of lumber, I liked their shapes and finally got around to sanding, filling and priming them, impatient to see would develop. The wood is construction grade lumber so not ideal, but definitely good enough for maquettes.

Continuing ...Colors of Dawn

I'm usually up early and love to sit outside with a coffee watching the sunrise. It's my quiet time; a time of wonder, of possibility, of hope, as the sun begins to rise and the new day is born.

The Colors of Dawn

My favourite times of the day are dawn and dusk; that in between time when possibility opens and closes, that time of light so tender.

Last Day for "Under Construction"

I've really enjoyed my time at Galerie Art Plus and want to thank Brigite for all her hard work: for her enthusiasm and dedication, for her support and belief in art and artists, for her belief in the power of art, of arts necessity in our lives; Brigite thank you, you are a gift. 

Today is the last day to see the show gallery hours are 1 -5 pm.

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.
