Time to get organized

With paintings seemingly coming and going in all directions, I've been working on getting organized. Other than running a 1/2 marathon (very slowly), I spent the weekend photographing, wiring, varnishing, etc.  I have a booth at a show at the Carriage House in Manotick this weekend.  It's kind of an impromptu thing so I hope we get traffic.

In other news, my brand new business cards arrived from Vistaprint today, and they are quite nice.  Just wish I had put my QR code on the back but that's OK.  Oh yes, and I finally put a couple of images on my Imagekind site so I can sell prints more easily.

Here is a recently finished piece.  I think I'll call it "Escape".

Persistent Visitor

My inspiration for this piece was a very persistent oriole that was hanging around the house this summer.  He kept going around to all the wondows and chirping and looking in.

Small Wonders Show Opens

I belong to an art group called "Ottawa Mixed Media Artists" and every year we have a show called Small Wonders where all the pieces are 12"x12" or smaller and are square.  The vernissage was last night at the Britannia Gallery in Ottawa, Ontario. The show looked great!  This image is of one of two paintings in the show and I'm happy to say that it sold.
