I have a lot of things to chat about...where to start? On Instagram I recently joined a group of artists who do artist pen pal exchanges. We are to mail something handmade that is small maybe 4"x4" along with a note. I received my package the other day all the way from New Zealand! The artist Helen Dean made me a wonderful abstract painting.
I've been painting a lot lately. While creating this new body of work I've discovered a few things. My youngest daughter is very interested in gems, geodes, and rainbows. These images keep repeating themselves in my paintings, without premeditation. A relative recently bought them some FANCY crayons & before they lose their shape I took a quick photo.
If you are local, stop by & say hello at Burrow on Hunter St. in Peterborough Ont. Wednesday April 20th they are hosting a Meet the Artist event from 5-7pm. Drinks & treats will be provided! I've made some new pieces on wood panel that will be the perfect gift for Mother's Day.
