It has been a whole year since we last opened our home and studio to the public for an art show. Like for many of us it has been a challenging year with lots of opportunity to learn and grow. We are very excited to see everyone and to share what we have been up to with our art and home/studio. Our art will fill this place and we have an almost fully completed kitchen that Peter (basically) built from almost scratch. There are also 23 other artists on this tour that are sure to inspire you. So come out and enjoy you local artistic talent!
Here are some of the paintings we completed in the last month. We’ve been having fun with colour and painting on wood panel lately. Click on the caption for pricing info if you’d like one of these for your walls.
It’s been slowly turning into spring around here, and we have even been able to paint with the studio door open to the fresh air! Here are a few new paintings we have been able to make in the last few weeks of April.
Here are four new pieces, painted over the course of the last few months.
All of the above paintings are now available through the “paintings for sale” link above.
Many thanks to all of you that ordered the Doidge Park Sledding print – we’re thankful for all the support and sales – it’s been a fun few weeks meeting (and driving around delivering prints to) people in the neighbourhood. Many Thanks!
Doidge Park is a park in Old North, London Ontario. (The neighbourhood we call home). It’s a magnet for people of all ages, but especially comes alive in the winter after a snowfall, when hundreds of children come out for the steep inward facing slopes that make for excellent sledding.
The original piece was an oil on canvas sized at 24″x30″, but it has sold. A number of people in the neighborhood had asked if they could get a print so here it is!
Another piece that I had fun with was this one. A nice coastal village with houses and bridges. I went back into it after it was “done”, because it needed something extra. I added a clothesline, flag and some other small details to make it come a bit more alive.
Corinne just finished this piece, “Bruce Trail Day Hike”, after a recent trip to the Hamilton area. This rock formation, and many other beautiful scenes are in “Smokey Hollow”, a recreation area near Waterdown Ontario.
