I Know It's Quite Surprising!

I just looked at the date of my last post and it's even surprising to me that it was so long ago.  Sometimes life just gets in the way.  I know that sounds like a pretty weak excuse but it's true in many ways.

I won't try and give you an update of the past year but just let you know that I have been painting and doing quite a lot of printmaking.  I have also taught some painting and printmaking workshops and really enjoyed doing them.  The best thing about teaching is that I meet really nice people.

Yesterday my work was hung as part of a group exhibition at Arta Gallery in the Distillery District here in Toronto. The focus of my recent work has been on intuitive non realistic works and I have four large pieces on show there.  The photo above is one of them.  I am finding this approach very challenging and in many ways much harder than working from something realistic.

Opening night is Thurs. April 3, 6 - 8 pm.  Regular Gallery hours and the address are in the link above. It would be great if you are able to make it.

Summer means outdoor art festivals and hopefully some nice weather.  I will be exhibiting at several around Ontario and will list them in my next posting.  I will be showing printmaking at most of these events.

The photo below is a piece I did for the Year Of The Horse print exhibition that was held at the Proof Gallery also in the Distillery District.  You can see most of the work here.  To see all the work on their site you can click on the right side of the page or go to previous posts at the bottom.  They were not able to fit them all on one post so did several.

As always I love to get your feedback.   Until next time ........

Your work is lovely. I especially like your abstract art. I know it's hard but I really connect to it. Looks like you're in your blue period!

Thanks Donna. You're right I do seem to be in a "Blue" period!
