Art and children have a way of showing us the love and sunshine in our life. Even when it's dark, being present to possibility, creativity and love instills hope and a pathway forward. My Mother's Day gift came early, and in a beautiful form. I want to share that with you.
Sitting Bull - "VOTE" - C'mon and get your VOTE ON, Canada!
Who to vote for? Who to trust? Go with the gut feeling, and be informed. Vote! It seems these days, you can't check in on Twitter or Facebook without seeing someone posting about the upcoming federal election, votemobs .....or the Vancouver Canucks. Everyone seems to have an opinion. I love seeing this type of engagement and I'm glad that I live in a country where we can express these freedoms. I've been more accustomed over the past decade or so to see apathy abound where voting is concerned.

Join me for a wonderful in-depth, weeknight workshop series at Alberta College of Art and Design, July 25 - 29, 2011 as part of the extended studies offered at ACAD. Working from still life, you will learn how to focus on values, create a grisaille, define light and complete a painting. You will also learn how to stretch and finish a fine Belgian linen canvas.
For years, one of the things that kept me back from painting with oils, was an allergy to them. The solution that I found was in M.Graham oils. Based with walnut oils, this did the trick for me! The medium is wonderful, silky smooth and the pigment quality is excellent.
