Going Places a new painting

It’s funny how fast summer goes. We promise ourselves to be fitter, get more projects done and be more contented with the weather as we know it is fleeting. Yet, it still passes at record speed;  the kids are back in school and as artists we are all getting ready for an assortment of Fall […]

Interpretations Show

  This is currently on display in the new gallery at Maggiolly Art for the show “Interpretations” with the Orangeville Art Group.  Again, I seem to find myself pushing the limits with colour.
