This Saturday October 24th is the opening night Gala for IAD 2015 in White Rock, BC. I have two 12" x 12" gallery-wrapped paintings in the exhibition this year and I'm looking forward to seeing them on the wall with all the other amazing submissions! This is a fun event and lots of people will be taking home incredible art at an incredible price. Each and every piece is priced at $150 but the deal is there are no signatures on the front so you don't know who did what... or which. All you know is how (much you love it). Partial proceeds go to support the arts in the community.
Two shows this past October have come and gone. I participated in the Delta Studio Stomp the first weekend of the month and it was an enormous success. It's our 3rd year and it was so good to hear many of the visitors were returning to see what we had created that was new for the show. I was happy/sad to see 5 paintings go out the door with their new owners. I say sad because they're a little like family members to me and sometimes I don't feel quite ready to say goodbye! I do get over it pretty quickly by popping back into the studio and playing with my paints.
I'm excited to see what happens with my painting in the months to come. I've been dabbling in acrylics lately and I'm loving some of the things I can do that I wasn't able to with oils. I'll never give up on oils completely but it sure is nice to see results in a fraction of the time! Nothin' beats the juicy buttery feel of oil paints, though :)

It's almost that time again! My studio, Darkling Thrush, will be opening up for two days October 5th and 6th for visitors to come wander and enjoy some new pieces. This year Marie Heath will be joining myself and Alice Loftus. Marie is an amazing mixed media artist from White Rock, BC and she's also a lovely person.
