It has been an exciting autumn so far for me. It started with finding out that 3 of my paintings were accepted into the FCA - Chapter show in Kamloops.
One of the paintings - "Soul Trap" was a bit of a departure from my usual subject matter. I entered it into the show not really knowing what to expect and was very pleased to have it included along with "Bed and Breakfast" and "Along The Trail". This show runs from September 25th - October 4th at the Old Courthouse Gallery in Kamloops. The opening reception is Friday the 25th from 7-9pm. I will be doing a demo on October 3rd which is a Saturday from 1-4 at the gallery as well.
Another exciting upcoming event is the Federation of Canadian Artists Show - Scenes from Western Canada. I submitted the painting to your left - "McGillivray Creek". This is a painting of the beautiful creek that flows through Sun Peaks, and right behind my house and studio. I LOVE that creek, and it's music lulls me to sleep every night. It is VERY exciting that a little piece of Sun Peaks will be represented in this show.
The opening reception for Scenes from Western Canada is Thursday September 24th from 7-9pm at the Federation Gallery on Granville Island - one of my favourite places.
So... I will be driving down to Vancouver for the reception on Thursday, then heading back to Kamloops for the reception on Friday... this is an exciting kind of busy.
