I’m planning a wonderful 2015.
There are new art classes and workshops starting in January… check out the schedule here.
I have a solo exhibit coming up at the Craft Council Gallery in May and June, which I’ll be busy getting ready for all winter. I’ll be printmaking, painting, and hooking mats representing ocean portraits. There should be a couple of collaborative projects included in the show too…
Then I’ll be packing up SS Virtue for the trip of a lifetime. Duke, Fred, Jack the Labrador Retreiver, Theo the orange tabby, and I will be sailing to Battle Harbour, Labrador at the end of June. I cannot express how excited I am about this plan! I have a hard time saying “Battle Harbour” without clapping my hands. I will be the Artist in Residence for the month of July. I’ll be creating work in a space provided for me, and teaching a few workshops on lino-cut printmaking. Go to www.battleharbour.com to find out more about Battle Harbour and the fantastic vacation you can have there!
And that means that Norton’s Cove Studio will be closed for the month of July. Not to worry- I’ll be bringing back lots of newly inspired work and a slide show too.
What are your plans for 2015?
|I’m working on a series of 9 8×10 canvases.
Each oil painting is based on the same photograph of waves, yet the images are unique.
|Here’s Surfacing 6-5 in progress…
