WELCOME TO MY NEW STUDIO
For years I felt profound envy for artists who had large studios – particularly lofts with great natural light & views of Paris or Manhattan, like the one above. Finally, this last May, I took the plunge.
Alas, no view of rooftops of Montmartre, the Marais or SoHo. However, it is a pleasant, open, high-ceilinged space on the east side of Vancouver where I can welcome an out-of-town visitor, or schedule a local friend to come share a coffee or bottle of wine. It also gives me a second location closer to downtown Vancouver where I can show my artwork at short notice.
· I can paint larger works on hardboard – works that are hard to manipulate in my attic studio at home in New Westminster.
· I can exhibit my largest works that had been impossible to view except during gallery exhibitions.
· I can store my remaining landscape paintings while still having them easily accessible for viewing.
· I can more fully feel part of the community of artists.
EAST SIDE CULTURE CRAWL
In mid-November, I’m participating in the Eastside Culture Crawl (ESCC) for the first time and hope to gain a larger audience for my work. Please come help me celebrate the new space. I am sending invites by email and snail-mail. Let me know if you haven’t received yours.
I will be in studio
• Thursday & Friday November 17th & 18th from 5 – 10PM
• Saturday & Sunday November 19th & 20th from 11AM – 6PM
You can also contact me and we can arrange a quieter private tour.
ART IN THE HOME
I am always grateful when people send me photos of my paintings in their homes. I’d like to share some beautiful examples.
