Springtime Art & Celebrations!

Soooooooo this Spring was a very busy and I cannot wait to share it with you! I have had a fabulous creative time with 4 big events.

#1. I was invited to be a part of a very well organzied Gypsy-Bohemian-Anne of Green Gables day for a lovely young lady and her friends. I hand painted 11 journals, where the party goers were to finish off the eyes, hair and mixed media embellishments . Plus I had some time to create and inspire with these adventure goers. IMG_2507 #2. I had the pleasure of teaching three 1.5 hour workshops with 90 young women of leadership that will be heading into high school next year. I created a mini introduction art/bullet journal for them to work in. I wanted it to be a way of taking some of the stress off of moving up to the older grades and having more classes in their schedules, while keeping it fun and friendly.

#3. NEW Art Instalment: I was invited to create some bright & fun art on canvas to be displayed at our local Menchies in a local shopping area called Morgan Crossing (ADDRESS: 15775 Croydon Drive, Unit 120, Surrey, BC V3S 0G2). The ceiling is very high and the walls are large, so I went out and bought a few large blank canvases and new paints 😉 . All of the painting are for sale and once they sell, I get to instal new painting!!! Therefore I invite you all to come on down to South Surrey, BC, have some refreshing treats and gaze upon the fun work. My largest piece , ‘Clowning Around’ which is 3 feet by 4 feet, is one of my most favourite paintings that I have ever done!

Challenge #12 ~ Create like a child

2014-Oct-propmt-12Remember when you just loved to scribble using different colours….

when you did not need to conform and colour within the lines?

I give you permission to let the 5 year old you take control of your art today!

For Example:

  •  draw flowers floating in the sky rather than clouds.
  • draw a fish being taken for a walk on a leash.
  • sketch a garden that grows house, hats or honeycomb
  • write about swimming unicorns and flying pigs
  • draw a rainbow you can slide down

Stepping Stones

Welcome down the path into my new ART STUDIO.

It is still a work in progress, but it is a lovely project to have to work on…lol.

This studio space is smaller than the last, but will be more prominent and welcoming for guests at my next OPEN HOUSE (date T.B.A.).

As mentioned in my video shown above, My lovely Grandma Fran turned a young 90 today! We had a wonderful celebration for her last Saturday with over 100 guests!

HaPpY BiRtHdAy Grandma!   xoxoxox
