The Sale Continues!

I'm happy to say my camera is home and working again. I've just added a couple new pieces to my Christmas Studio Sale.

I had started this Madonna Icon several months ago and somehow it got tucked away out of sight. So this afternoon I added the gold leaf to her halo and with my tiny needle nosed tweezers attached all those sparkling Swarovski crystals. Although the sky was a bit dingy and overcast to get a good shot of the sparkle, this detail at least picks up the colour of the crystals.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating today. We had our Canadian Thanksgiving back in October when it was still warm and we could still get by in sandals...seems like a long time ago now.

One Month Away and Snow In The Air!

A bit of snow in the air today, and Christmas is...WHAT? One month from today! Ever since I was a child, the weeks leading up to Christmas have always been the quickest to pass. And as the years have crept along, well...time marches even faster it seems.

Sadly, my camera is in the shop again so I have no new work to post. But for those of you who are checking into my Christms Studio Sale I will add a couple new pieces once that camera comes home.

In the meantime, this is a painting that I'll be adding to my sale later today. It seems I'm still finding the odd painting tucked away here and there. And as the advertisers say "Everything Must Go!"

It's called "Such A Pretty Pair" and is painted in acrylics on a wooden box frame, 12 x 36 inches, kind of sweet and romantic I think.

It's Been So Long...

It has been too long since I sat down to write anything on this blog. I've thought about it, signed in...then stared at the screen, tapped away at the keyboard and then hit "delete"...the muses had fled and abandoned me.

My days of late have been mostly spent cleaning the studio, the basement, the kitchen...A brand new year is around the corner and I want to be ready for it!

For those of you who visit my website you might remember that due to family responsibilities I made the difficult decision to cancel all my fall and winter shows. So, it seemed like a good time to run my first ever on line Christmas Studio Sale.
