My New House Guests

After a long stint at INDEXG Gallery in Toronto my first art brownies have come home, and I like them here keeping me company in my kitchen. I think I will ask them to stay.

Have you had artwork returned to you only to discover that you are really glad they came home to stay?

Let’s Get Physical!

A recent German study found that recent retirees who engaged in active creative activity showed improved brain function and psychological resilience compared to those who attended art appreciation courses. The physical act of creating art seemed to be the key to this improvement for it strenghtened brain connections and enhanced memory processing.

So get your paintbrushes, pencils,…

What You Build

It has been a while since I have posted about my artwork. Family matters have kept me occupied and away from my computer. It has been a good time, with my son getting married and my sisters coming for an extended visit, but it has ended on a bittersweet note with a lot of departures, including both of my children leaving for parts East as they embark on new adventures. My house,…

Wharariki Beach

Wharariki Beach

The most beautiful beach in the world is this one I came across on my trip to New Zealand earlier this year. It is Wharariki Beachon the northwestern tip of the south island. A hidden gem reached by a twenty minute walk from the closest car park, it is an unspoiled, vast, breathtaking piece of heaven on earth. It’s remoteness and unsuitability for swimming due to strong currents…

Music Mondays – Enjoy The Silence

An oldie but goodie today from one of my favorite bands.

Enjoy The Silence by Depeche Mode, one of their best live performances of this song. Would have loved to have been in Milan for this!

Enjoy the performance!

Gordes, one of France’s beautiful perched villages in Provence. Breathtaking as you approach, so lovely to walk through, oh so hard to leave.

These three pieces are from a series of small, four inch square monotypes I made, using the ghost imagery of the previous work to build upon for the next. I created the works using two mylar circles of varying sizes which I inked and placed in different parts of the square whole. I used only two colors, black and yellow ochre in the pieces. The textures were created…

It’s late in the day but it’s a perfect song for sending you off to bed.

Italian Hats

Roman Holiday

Do you ever feel like you’re wearing too many hats?

These days I feel like I’m juggling so many projects and everything on my to do list takes twice as long to complete as expected. Being sick with a bad cold all week hasn’t helped. Although it did allow me time to play Portal 2 all the way through again. Except for the final battle, can never beat Weasley on the final battle!
