as you can see it appears I am unable to stop painting Blue/green chickens with human type eyes.....so I am going with the flow of it and continuing to play with this idea.......

Joyful Effort

i have been a regular user of the word "busy" in the past but i am the process of dropping it from my vocabulary...at least in terms of myself.....i have come to see it as being an ego reinforcer....as in "I'm so busy" having a secondary meaning of "I'm so important".....so i am working on dropping it....

my story today is that i am grateful to have all the opportunities to create and share my artwork....and i have been very happily occupied with many new things.....here are a few with links....

1. Sandwell Slough Show.....this is a local show with several artists creating work based on raising awareness of a beautiful and threatened area on our lovely island....my pieces were of my "Heron" series of glass art

2. Glass Christmas ornaments to Crafthouse Gallery in Vancouver

3. New glass art to Vernon Public Art Gallery

4. 3 New paintings to Resolution Gallery in Calgary for an event called "The Tea Party" in conjunction with "The Naked Leaf Tea Company"

5. Preparing new mixed media paintings for a solo showing at Artzi Stuff in Nanaimo in early
November....

and working on orders for commissioned pieces, flower bouquets for The Shayne Gallery

and many more things including travels and family....

Artzi Stuff

i just delivered these few small pieces of my mixed media work to a lovely little boutique gallery in Nanaimo....it is called Artzi Stuff .....this gallery has had artwork from other  Gabriola Island artists long before me....people like Shena Meadowcroft  and Simone Bell ....the shop is owned and operated by Tanya Streeter Wilson who is an artist herself....she does really great silk screening and textile work as well as other types of mixed media art......

we are planning to have a solo show of my mixed media paintings in september.... in the meantime, there are a few pieces already showing there......check it out if you are in the area...it is a delightful shop...!
