Transition: 2012 Exciting Year For Art

Happy New Year ! Wishing you all  health, happiness and prosperity in 2012.

I'm off and running for 2012. I have a new collage called "Enlightened, Halifax" at a juried group show, "City Seen" , at SWOON Gallery at 1410 Hammond's Plains Rd. Show dates are January 7th-28th. The Opening Reception is Saturday, Jan. 7th, 2-5 p.m. and there are so many great artists I admire in the show. Definitely a show worth checking out!

I'm working on a collage series as yet untitled for a show all about Mahone Bay. It will run for the month of June at the Amber Rose Gallery in Mahone Bay. I'm really excited about it and am putting a sneak peek here on my page called "I'm Banking On It" .There are so many beautiful buildings and viewplanes traveling through on the narrow winding road and I've captured many in what I hope is a warm and unique style. I'll post more details about the show when I have them.

Following that I have a show called "Fun in The Sun" for the month of July at Art Sales and Rental, Hollis Street, Halifax. This is  another series of collage with fun and vibrant colours and sometimes a little cheek.

I've got other works on the go as well as I'm preparing to get some paintings ready for Jo Beale's Gallery in Peggy's Cove and for Seaside Gallery at Shaw's Landing in West Dover. And I've started another series for the fall.

So my resolution for 2012 is to work hard, and create, create create! This year is a transition for me and I embrace it. I am blessed and I hope that it  will show in my work.

For my passion to paint, 2011 has been a rewarding year for me and I must acknowledge my followers and supporters. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the many ways you have helped me in 2011. Whether in the form of encouragement, advice or patronage, you have been with me. Thank you also to Art Sales and Rental Society, Halifax, Jo Beale Gallery, Peggy's Cove, Shaw's Landing, West Dover, The Amber Rose Gallery in Mahone Bay and Visual Arts Nova Scotia (VANS). Also to The Halifax Art Map and The Studio Rally. Your support and promotion of Nova Scotian Artists is commendable. I am always in your debt, Thank you.
