Fall Beach Studio Tour

Beach Studio Tour
October 19th , 20th and 21st
Friday 6-9pm
Saturday 10am-6pm
sunday 11am-6pm

You are warmly invited to my home studio for a wine and cheese opening Friday night October 19th. The exhibit and free tour  at my location (17 Fernwood Park) and throughout the 12 other locations continues Saturday and Sunday. 
A variety of new works will be on display. A fairly recent series of mine is inspired by Pine River, a small magical river that runs throughout the Mulmur Hills area that will be affected by the the Mega Quarry. This year coinciding with the weekend of the tour there will be two other events: Soupstock in Woodbine Park and Artists against the MegaQuarry at Essentia on Queen St. A great weekend to have some soup, see some art and enjoy the Fall coulours in the Beach.
The Pine River series of watercolour and acrylics on canvas will be based on my frequent stay in a little cabin owned by a friend, surrounded by trees on the edge of the river. A true artist's retreat that I loved. When I grew tired of water and trees I took a drive and enjoyed the rolling hills and beautiful vistas of the surrounding area.
The inspiration and images stayed with me and influenced my painting through sketches and photos I brought back to my studio. These paintings will be on display with a percentage of the proceeds going towards www.ndact to support efforts to save the water and farmland in this beautiful area.
Along with plein aire paintings will be my usual whimsical mix of flowers, angels, goddesses and abstracted explorations. It would be great to see you.
