Just another reminder that my paintings are at The Break in Time Cafe here in Creston, BC!
Just installed this new “old” painting yesterday – this large piece has been hanging in my own home for years and this is the first time it’s ventured out into the great wide world. This is your chance to take a peek at it in real life!
Well the sad news is that my competition piece did not get accepted in the canadian art comp SSNAP… There were 800 some artist submissions and only 54 were chosen so that’s a lot of talented folks to compete against! I’ll try again one day. 🙂
Now this was a fun project! My good friend Jo owns her own little organic spicerie and she commissioned me to design a new artistic label for one of her flavourable blends.
I did the drawing digitally, which is not something I do very often, however I’d like to get better at it. The image is actually inspired by our local landscape here in Creston, BC.
Make sure you take a peek at the spice blends that Jo has to offer – we’ve used several in our home and we love them – Just click this link here —>42Things – Organic Spicerie
Love the abstract play of ice on windows.
Us Creston Valley peeps are wimps… It’s been minus 8 – 16 degrees this week and we’re freezing – brrrrrr!!! (I’m rolling my eyes because I know that all you folks who live in the truly arctic areas of Canada are laughing at us right now.) However, I am grateful for this little cold snap because I found ICE everywhere. A big thank-you to Valerie for submitting ‘ICE‘ as a photo challenge it has been a fun week of ice hunting and ice play!
This is a view of the tree in our backyard through the ice covered greenhouse windows.
Funky icy bubble formations on our pond.
And not only is ice fun to photograph it’s apparently a lot fun to play on as well! Couldn’t resist sharing these silly pics of my son and his friends sliding around on our frozen pond yesterday afternoon!
Next week’s photo challenge, submitted by Damien, is ‘TRANQUILITY‘. Ahhhhh… I like the sound of this one! Check back next Wednesday to see how tranquil I can be! 😀
