The commission triptych I made for Canadian Business Growth Funds has been installed in their board room in Toronto.‚Ā†
We selected the painting color palette together so it would add a touch of brightness while fitting in with the rest of the room colors. They have great lighting in that room so I am very happy with the way it turned out.‚Ā†
Thanks CBGF for this opportunity :)‚Ā†

We have a cool activity for Culture Days, this coming Saturday
10 am to 4 pm.

Step inside a working art studio and try your hand at block printing on paper to make beautiful unique patterned cards.
You can either use the blocks we already have in the studio or we can show you how to carve your own block on a piece of soft vinyl.
Sandrine and Sophie will guide you through the process.
This activity is suitable for all ages.

This event is free.



I brought all those printed ladies yesterday at the ACT gallery in Maple Ridge for the Ensemble show.

In their words:

November 3‚ÄďDecember 20, 2018

This group show has become something of a Christmas ’classic’ at The ACT. Selected artists are invited to display a grouping of their artwork that is related by theme, medium, style, and/or size. The result is always surprisingly coherent, with each artist being given just enough space to make a statement.

All works in the show are available for sale, offering much potential for those who like to deck their halls (or someone else‚Äôs) with something handmade and heartfelt at this time of year.”

Join me for the opening on November 3rd :2-4 pm

From Acrylicsworks: Value is one of the key art elements of any two-dimensional artwork. To many¬†artists, value represents the single most important element of a painting. The¬†compositional structure that the tonal values create in a painting is the¬†framework that holds everything else‚ÄĒcolor and detail‚ÄĒtogether. In a complex painting, the artist generally decides on a value key, whether in the light or dark range, or a full range of values from black to white. It is tonal value that most creates the illusion of three dimensions in an artwork, and it is also the foundation of composition. One cannot overstate the importance of value in painting and drawing.
For the AcrylicWorks 5 contest, we are looking for excellence in acrylic painting in a variety of styles and subjects. The dominant medium must be acrylic, but some minor use of other media is acceptable. If selected, you will be asked to write about your painting in relation to the theme Bold Values. This could be interpreted through your creative or technical process, materials and/or artistic inspiration.
This was a gorgeous weekend for Art in the Garden 2017!
I was located in Christine Hood’s garden, who is a multi media artist (see her website here) as well as a talented gardener.
‚ÄčThe Jazz band Blue Bird Day was playing on both days.

Very nice to see Green Bouquet and Slice of Life-Louise in this selection of gorgeous acrylic paintings!
I have two paintings showcased in that book, both with some bright colors.
Both paintings sold.

The Best of Acrylic Painting
Editor:By Jamie Markle,
The best acrylic artists competition showcase!
Color has the power to demand attention, quicken the heart and transport us to another place and time. The virtuosos featured in AcrylicWorks 4 have successfully employed acrylic paint to capture and use that power to magnificent effect.

This brilliant collection features 127 paintings from modern-day acrylic artists. The artists themselves reveal acrylic painting ideas, tips and secrets, sharing how they play colors against each other–light and dark, bright and soft, delicate glazes and bold impasto–to make their paintings sing. They share secrets for creating mood, capturing a subject’s personality and conveying the spirit of an animal in the wild. And how they approach subjects ranging from a shock of sunset sky, to the liquid ripples of antique glass, to purely abstract color play.
