London Artist’s Studio Tour 2021

London Artist’s Studio Tour 2021

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!

October 1, 7:00pm-9:30pm

October 2, 10:00am-5:00pm

October 3, 12:00-5:00pm ‘

Details for the tour are here: www.londonstudiotour.ca

Time Lapse Video

Time Lapse Video

Here’s a time lapse video from our new Youtube Channel. We thought it would be fun to show our process, and put the paintings out to a wider audience as well.

So far the response has been great – so we’re making more videos of our work. Check it out!

This piece is called “Old North”, and is painted in oil, on masonite.

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!

We’re excited to introduce a new reproduction by Corinne, “Doidge Park Sledding“.

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!

Some New Artwork

Some New Artwork

Well, it’s been a hectic last few months, despite being shut away in our homes from the pandemic. We’ve been busy!

Here are a few new pieces that we’ve made in between so many commissioned pieces of art.

Smokey Hollow Falls Trail, 36″x48″, Oil on Canvas, Corinne Garlick.

Available for purchase here.

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.

Little Island Village, 24″x36″, Oil on Canvas, Peter Karas.

Available for sale here.
