Studio had a good deep clean and organize this weekend.
Getting ready for Centre 64 art show in Kimberley this fall. Purging old paintings and filling frames - old and new.
Starting some new botanical works from my collection of flowers during this mornings walk. Lupins, wild roses, columbine, kallick-kallick, and fireweed.
So so so super excited to share this with you!
Marie-Christine and I have pulled off exactly what we had hoped for. Over fourteen months in the works and tomorrow we get to share all the hard work, fun times and finished pieces with you.
I am very pleased with the entire show - the balance of the top to lower gallery as well as the scale, installation, and atmosphere.
Please join us tomorrow evening for a glass of wine and a big happy smile. This FAMILY PORTRAIT makes me smile every time! Enjoy!
Having fun today "setting up shoppe!"
Marie-Christine and I have enjoyed collaborating on a few different works for this upcoming exhibition.
Opening November 6th - as well as having a variety of paintings and prints for sale, we have added a subsidiary gift shop space into the the upper gallery filled with small paintings, art cards, postcards, pin-badges, magnets, calendars, t-shirts, pottery, and more! Come on in and say hello.
A few finishing touches and a whole lot of packaging to complete.
Here is a sneak peek at the owl lino. cuts. There will be 35 for sale at the gallery exhibition in November. Each have been printed on card paper with white ink and drawn on with Staedtler pens, gouache, and water colour pencil. $10/each.
As well... a hummingbird on birch - watercolour pencil, gouache, and transfer... in the works.
Hope to see you at the gallery this month! Cheers.
What an incredible weekend and amazing amount of work.
Always such a wonderful welcoming time in Rosswood - and this past weekend so rewarding to get so much work complete as well. Crunch time for November 6th opening with lots of lovely ideas to finalize and materialize and be excited about.
I tried something a little different this year. 2016 Spirit Animal wall & desk calendars are ordered.
There are 50 x wall calendars available at $25.00 each / 10 x desk calendars available at $15.00 each.
Let me know if you want to pre-order. These calendars will be available on November 6th at the Terrace Art Gallery.
Marie-Christine Claveau <https://www.facebook.com/mariechristine.artwork?fref=ts> and I will be sharing our studio work through the Terrace Art Gallery November 6th-28th.
I have given myself until the end of September to paint my mixed media Spirit Animals on board. These works have been really enjoyable for my kids and I to create. We have only begun learning about Spirit Animal meanings and I hope you enjoy these quirky "painted drawings" ... "drawn paintings"....???
The September 30th deadline is to ensure that these works are complete and photographed - ready for my 2016 calendar.
Mine and MCC's goal for this exhibition was to "go back to school" and "challenge ourselves and our painting process through projects." Let me know your thoughts...
A few weeks ago I decided to upload some painting images to a design site and create some super kewl tights - yeh me! It was fun designing them and so so great that they arrived just 2 weeks later.
Uploaded original artwork, check. Canadian company, check. Comfy to wear, check. Compliments from friends, check. For sale in the local yoga studio, BIG check.
Thanks Aly, Jamie, and Grace for your support! visit Terrace Yoga Studio!
