Cajun Bayou Belles

Have been working on the camping trip for a long time. I'm about to totally finish the 16 x 20 painting. Then Going to make prints of it and hang the original  on my wall. Working on any thing for my belles makes me so happy. If all goes well my short story will go on the back side of the painting.

Life

Well life, the reality of life, has taken over my artistic freedom and of late I have none.  It has been hectic.  I have been facilitating a number of art therapy workshops (which is great) and the preparation has involved all of my free time.  But...these workshops are easing with Christmas on the horizon and the summer holidays here in Aus when life begins a slower pace while universities and school are closed.  Roads become quieter and as the weather heats up people stop inside with…

HELP! Am I forgetting anything? Less than Two Months to "Big Break" Exhibition

Eeek, I've now passed the two-months-to-go mark. I install my Passions: Red & Black show at The Art Bar of Toronto's artsy Gladstone Hotel on December 23. While every day eats into my 7-page to-do list, there are still SO many items still to accomplish.

Paintings are all completed. Oh yeah, some still need D-rings installed to conform to the gallery's hanging system, but that's a matter of two hours some Saturday morning. Soon. I'm buying the rolls of bubble wrap…
