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.
