Winter's breath is upon us!

I am finding myself hunkering in to warm myself in front of the fire these past few days..Snow days already and it's only November 20! Reflecting on the past month or so I have been busy -and my activities diverse! A weekend visit with two artist friends at a cozy cottage  proved to be a remedy from my own private hustle and bustle
Having my art featured in the most lovely Heartwood Home Decor store in Owen Sound for the month of November has been a treat!

A drive to Toronto to see family..(and wrestle traffic!)

Roller skating with my local Roller Derby Team at the Santa Claus Parade..

and a few new  art pieces..
 this painting was re jigged,painted and altered...
A couple of workshops in October that were fun and enriching! The Memory Box project with a feisty group of local seniors and a journal workshop with some creative youth from local high schools

Going horizontal

Ok I am just a little obsessed with horizontal/landscape paintings right now...

They are especially  fun and nice on textured found wood...

Yea! A new online Class in Time for Cooler Fall Days! After a couple of months of filming and configuring and formulating I have finally finished my newest online class for the Trodden Path! I am overjoyed because this topic proved to be more daunting than a single project!  "Adventures in Mixed Media" encompasses a visual commentary on my process and tips for making your own art journals come alive..I also offer a video on making an altered board book -and show steps from start to finish .(.With the occasional rooster or chicken adding their personal vocal touch to the background!) It's all very personal ! What I love about offering  these classes is that they can be accessed at the viewer's discretion- no dates or deadlines  to be locked into!

Here is the link if you wish to check it out further! These are the methods I use when i feel a bit artistically stuck and I hope you will have fun and play along too ! :-)
