Welcome to my world of painting and creating…

It is now September and the crowds and traffic jams from summer vacationers have diminished.  The severe heat and humidity have left us with only the sweet kiss of summer warmth.  Indeed, with cooler evening temperatures and the sun peeking over the horizon later each morning, the feeling that fall is around the corner is unmistakable.

It has been a busy and fruitful art season! Thank you to all who attended my various art openings and shows this summer, some of which will continue into the fall.  You can still see my Garden Irises set and other new paintings at my solo exhibit at Figg Street Co. at 40 Front St. S. in Thorold, ON until September 10th.

It Happened in Hawaii, 36″x 24″, gallery canvas, $450 – on display at The Town of Lincoln Museum and Cultural Centre

The Niagara Shores Artists Exhibit and Sale at the charming Town of Lincoln Museum and Cultural Centre at 4996 Beam St. in Beamsville, ON will continue until the end of December.

Read the latest news about us in Niagara This Week.

Go to Exhibits and Shows for more information about all of the artists in this special group and the workshops we will be holding there through the fall.  While you are there, consider taking a walk through the pretty downtown along King St., or enjoying a delicious lunch at The Good Earth winery only a five minute drive away.  Beamsville is along the Niagara Wine Route and there is no shortage of boutique wineries to choose from, offering delectable vintages from the enviable soil and climate of the Beamsville Bench.

Flourish, 28″x22″, $400, on display at Figg Street Co.

If the summer keeps you too busy to join the growing trend to find and purchase original art for your home and office, consider taking a trip to The Carmel Fine Art and Music Festival at Firemen’s Park in Niagara Falls, where many artists with diverse offerings will be gathered over the weekend of September 14th to 16th.  You don’t want to miss the annual Friday Gala, where you might still see some of the artists wearing masks in honour of our old tradition. I know I will have mine on, see if you can recognize me.
