Fall is my favourite season and this year it certainly hasn't disappointed--- wow, what fabulous weather.
With Thanksgiving almost here, I realize I am long overdue for an update about studio happenings and news!
Classes and Drop-in sessions continued throughout the summer; here are some pics of the watercolour class and some drop-in paintings:
Drop-in Class :
Studies form the Watercolour 2 Class:
For the first time I opened my studio and garden for seven "Art Show in the Garden and Studio" Sundays this summer. It forced me to organize my artworks and update pricing, as well as get my rather unruly large yard in better shape! It was successful and enjoyable and the weather was perfect all summer. Met lots of nice folks and even sold some paintings! A few pics:
Now that it back to school time, I am setting some course times up (see below) and I also became a student myself for a week in September. I took a course entitled "Abstracting the Landscape" with Greg Hargeaves, an American artist whose work I think is awesome. His demos and critiques were great! And it was lovely to paint for 5 hours a day for 5 straight days, with a bunch of lovely, like-minded artists! Check out Vancouver Island Art Workshops for future courses, offered in Nanaimo and Saanich, BC. Here a few photos from the course:
