Summer, being my favourite season, for the heat and sunshine, has so far proved quite disappointing. We’ve had a lot of rain and overcast days, quite cool also. So cool in fact, that we’ve been firing up the wood stove and wearing sweaters, at the end of June! However, due to all the rain, the garden (and weeds) are looking great and the mosquito population has exploded! The lake levels are up!
I am continuing to work on my Lotus paintings on a daily basis.
Most recently, I’ve completed a few pieces on hand made paper, with wonderful results. I’ve had this paper in stock, in my studio, for many years; it was obviously waiting for the right opportunity to make it’s debut!
On July 11, I will participate at the annual “Art in the Garden” exhibit at Keppel Croft Gardens. How fitting-images of Lotuses in a beautiful garden! Rain date is July 12, for any local people who plan to attend. http://www.keppelcroft.com/
In June, I spent some time visiting old friends in Montreal. Long time coming! I was very fortunate to see the exhibit at Musee d’art Contemporain of Montreal artist David Altmedj. It’s difficult to describe this show-but for me, it was one of the most amazing visual art exhibits I’ve seen in a very long time!
