Where does the time go… I haven’t had an opportunity to tell you how well the Peninsula Art Tour went at the end of September! It was amazing. More later. For the moment, here’s looking ahead.
October is a busy month and this group show is coming up. Mark it on your calendar, I expect to be there on October 15th.
It was an opportunity that I did not want to give up. To have a solo art show at the Ocean Park Library, South Surrey from October 1st to the 31st. With short notice and help, it came together. I decided to call the exhibit, October: Simple Pleasures and Gratitude. It is the month wherein we celebrate Thanksgiving, a time of sharing – just getting together.
Included in the show is one honorary painting by my art tutor Laara WilliamSen. I’ve taken classes with Laara since 2012.
Drop by to see her beautiful oil painting and my expressive acrylic art works! Simple pleasures for the spirit.
Dear friends and art lovers,

The tour features twenty-seven artists.
Looking forward to a visit with you.

I am looking forward to showing my work with other artists at this uniquely-themed show through the Fraser Valley Chapter of Federation of Canadian Artists! I’ll be there on Saturday.
“Abstract painting is abstract. It confronts you. There was a reviewer a while back who wrote that my pictures didn’t have any beginning or any end. He didn’t mean it as a compliment, but it was. ” Jackson Pollock

Another month, another showing! This weekend, I brought a few of my favourite pieces, including two triptychs and three works to the Ocean Park Library in Surrey. My mentor, Laara WilliamSen, curated the show which will be on display until the end of April. Consider buying some art with your tax refund!
Something else that is particularly special about this show is that a it is the first showing for a friend of mine who has also recently started painting in the abstract style. Darrel Cannings (stay tuned for his website) has also started working with Laara and has fallen in love with and adopted the abstract method of “pouring.”
In total, there are six artists on display. Please make some time this month to pick up a coffee across the street and wander into the library to support your local artists!

I received this quote in an email about a week ago and have not been able to let it go. I can feel it.
It seems true for other areas of life too when it comes from the heart. That is how I feel about art, letting go so the drive creates it. Pretty amazing.
