WINTER NOTES FROM THE STUDIO

French Suite, 11×14


Dear Friends

As the year draws down to embers, I sit in the warmth of my studio fire and reflect on the gratitude I feel for each of those known and unknown connections to people such as yourselves that have been part of making this year rich with opportunities and growth. The myth of the lone artist is just that, a myth. I may experience solitude in the studio, but without the myriad sources of support with which I am gifted, the work would not find its life and place in the world. Thank you.

Wishing you and your loved ones a winter holiday season of warmth, light, creativity and peace.

Please join me in an afternoon of celebration December 15th, in the iconic Parker St Studios. I have some paintings on offer, including French Suite seen above, along with a select group of artists curated by Sarah Dobbs of the gallery Parker Projects.

The gallery is open Wed – Sat 12 noon to 6pm or by appointment, call Sarah at 604 254 8743.
