Seasons Greetings! These small watercolour paintings on canvas are at The Art District Gallery until end of January. I have some poured acrylic smalls at The Button Factory Art Market this month.  For my personal exploration, I have been busy working in different directions. I finished setting an azurite cabochon stone onto a lost wax cast ring that I started a few years back. I experienced the slow and methodical process of creating a mezzotint intaglio etching plate. I am learning a jig saw woodcut printmaking technique and I am also trying my inks in different ways including painting on silk.

Look for my Hidden Valley painting at the Kitchener City Hall Berlin Gallery in January.  I joined the Central Ontario Art Association and look forward to new group shows scheduled through 2018. I will be teaching Watercolour Exploration Tuesdays and Intro. to Lino Block printing Thursday afternoons at Button Factory Arts this Winter.

Follow The Art District Gallery .. stay tuned for our upcoming journey in February 2018.
