Summer 2018- August

My exhibition at the Galerie 2 Barn Owls, Hudson, QC commences on Friday, Aug. 24 with a vernissage from 5-7pm. Suzy will be my bartender in her converted vintage Rice Horse Trailer. Please come and enjoy. From Aug. 25 until Sept. 2, I will be present at the gallery on Friday and Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 11-4. These are the same opening hours as the 2 Barn Owls. You will enjoy the creative talented works of art by co-owner Mavis and Nancy in the adjacent room.

                                                                                                                                                           

This summer is hot and it was a good choice for vacation time to go to Vancouver island and visit our friends. Here we dined on local food and watched the ocean.

Sushi Ichi in Parksville, is an eatery we visit each time we come to the island. Sushi rolls, tempura, Japanese soup and warm sake.

We always dine at Cuckoo Trattoria in Coombs on the terrasse or inside.The menu has a wide variety of Italian favourite and all are wonderfully good.

At Kingfisher Spa and Resort, Courtenay Comox, we stop for lunch at Aqua Ocean 7.  The vista toward the ocean is spectacular and the food exceptional with choice of mussels, seafood chowder, salmon and many other seasonal local foods.

I have my watercolours and paper with me but did only a few sketches.

Invitation 2 Barn Owls 2018

This past week I renewed my acquaintance with artist Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) with a book among many given by my friend and artist Nasco. What I appreciated from this book was the journey of an artist. The Black Bull,(1900-01, oil on canvas, private collection), then the sophisticated decorative portraits like Danäe (1907-08, oil on canvas, private collection) and his mesmerizing landscapes of dense parallel horizontal and vertical colours.

A few years ago, Carole Segal would open her studio and provide a model dressed in the character of well known icons by famous artists. One of these was a model dressed in the fashion of Klimt portraiture. As an aside, I appreciated her kind words “we just started “ when I arrived late and tried to find my spot among many. Montreal morning traffic has not improved. Here is my version found in my studio.

Galerie Carlos, Old Brewery Mission

My Wall Space at the Old Brewery Mission

An opportunity to show some of my recent paintings will take place this month from June 7 to July 19 at the Carlos Gallery, 915 Clarke St., Montreal. My paintings will be displayed in the Gallery at the Old Brewery Mission for their clients, staff and volunteers. This space is not open to the public.

I enjoyed the creation and painting of the canvases; all inspired by my plein air sketching in watercolour this past year. The paintings are here to enjoy. My hope is they start a conversation, a shared laugh or perhaps a memory of our beautiful province. It is my pleasure to be invited.

Sky, Water and Earth

L’inspiration de tous ces tableaux vient de mes aquarelles créés ” plein air”. J’espère qu’ils débuteront une conversation, créeront un sourire ou mieux, un souvenir de notre superbe province. Ce fut un plaisir de recevoir cette invitation.
