I'd like to invite you to join me for a morning of fun and art that is personal to you. This simple technique of ink and watercolour will be something you can use all your life to create and record those moments of importance in your life. Throw away that Instagram and Facebook post for a quick sketch and some penned thoughts
Enchant your inner artist in a sensuous slow feast with painter Janice Tanton, singer songwriter Julia Lynx and Chef George Bayne. Explore the role of art and music in your life with a special focus on healing and rejuvenation. A two-time Canada Council award recipient, Janice’s works are represented locally at Canada House Gallery in Banff. Julia will share some of her songs unplugged.

It feels like Christmas! This is my first solo show in twelve years!!!...And the ONLY solo show of my work for 2012...AND...introduces some fabulous new figurative work that incorporates 22k gold and silver. Can you see me grinning from where you are? I'm very excited. There are secret pieces in this show from my own private collection and brand new works which I have to say are the best work that I have ever completed....and YOU ARE INVITED!!!
Any time that I spend a lengthy time working on tight, classic work...it's too much for me. My creative muscles atrophy; my brain keeps me up all night and I feel like I'm trudging along, thermos and lunchpail, to my shift at the factory studio.
I'm 10 days away from heading out on the open road and sea to Haida Gwaii for my residency. I've been blogging about the countdown on my CAMP Art Project site, so do head over there and have a look!
What a lovely day to begin spring plain air painting. Here was my setup this afternoon in Kananaskis.
