It feels like spring is just around the corner with the longer days and bright sunshine. Winter is still desperately trying to hang on with the occasional snow squall but the warm winds of spring quickly melt any fresh snow. The local art community is also experiencing spring fever as many of the spring shows which were cancelled over the last two years are back in full swing! And that means I have to start painting! I have started a mixed media series based on the daylily which will be showcased in of those spring art shows. But I really need to start some bigger paintings. A few ideas are percolating...you will just have to wait and see.
CURRENT and UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS
"PRAIRIE DRIFT: A PERSONAL JOURNEY"
In this solo show, I am exhibiting a collection of landscape works that I created over the past four years. The Alberta prairie is showcased in this exhibition, portrayed in a wide variety of mediums ranging from graphite to acrylic to mixed media. This show is at the Zyp Gallery, Calmar.
I will be one of the vendors at this spring market showcasing my fused glass items and some of my "Easter" crafts. I will only be there on Saturday, April 9.
I will have my daylily series on display at this particular art show. This art show takes place at the A.J. Ottewell Centre (Red Barn, Broadmoor Blvd., Sherwood Park)
I know, I know. Two art shows on the same weekend! What was I thinking?!? I will be showcasing some of my landscape paintings at this art show. It takes place in the St. Albert Place Rotunda.
WHAT'S IN THE STUDIO?
Thoughts and hopes for an early spring have been on my mind and so I started a new series featuring bright, sunny daylilies. I have completed several small mixed media paintings, including my first one on a round birch panel.
