Studio Tour

I'm back from my travels, catching up on timezone changes and getting ready for a studio tour on August 29 & 30th. In my travels I had some time in the Canadian Rockies with a hike around Moraine Lake in Banff National Park.  The glacial lakes are amazing in colour and clarity, looking surreal.  Apparently its "rock flour" that gives the water that turquoise colour and even in August, the remnants of snow and glacier ice can be seen on the mountain peaks.  There's a few paintings waiting to happen there.

This year I will be taking part in the Pouch Cove Open Studio event.  This is a two day event where Pouch Cove area artists and artisans open their homes and studios to the public to showcase their work. This year I am one of the two artists from Flatrock who will be participating. On the tour you will find paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, and photographs.

I'll be making my organic vine charcoal available only through the studio tour and will have a range of prints and original paintings to browse through.  If you're in the area, take time to visit all the artist studios, you never know what treasures you'll unearth.

Hi Jeanette,
Welcome back from a well-deserved trip. Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos.
Best wishes for the Open Studio. I have a feeling your guests will love what you do and your inventory will be seriously--and happily--depleted!!

Hello Gary and thank you.

Photos aren't a patch on the real thing, the scenery in the mountains is always inspiring.

I'm juggling plumbing repairs (where else but in the studio!) with prep for the open studio at the weekend. Hoping for vistors to talk and share with during the two days.
