Hello out there in the world!  I'm here too...at least I think I am!

Just a quick note to say I'm working hard at Christmas shows, having work in the Summerland Arts Council Light Up the Arts gift shop (which I organize with the help of a great crew who have decorated the building beautifully!) November 15-December 24, I had 2 pieces juried into the Peachland Artists of the Okanagan show opening November 26 until Christmas, and I have 2 pieces in the Penticton Art Gallery's Under $500 sale (already open).

I will be showing lots of new work and my 2023 calendars are also available at the events below or by sending me an email.  I was able to keep the costs to $14 again although they are bigger (shows off the art very well) and the mailing costs are a little higher.

This encaustic (beeswax with oil paint) piece is in my calendar, and although it sold right away I have a number of smaller ones in the series that are still available.

Two events I'm also participating in are this weekend, Saturday November 19, Kaleden Progressive Market, from 11-3, in an artist friend's garage on 3rd Street with another artist this year. A great idea where there is a map with many merchants, food providers, and crafters setting up in locations throughout this beautiful community, and people can drive around and visit who they like--no charge! 

And the biggest sale of the year, for me, is December 2-4 in Coquitlam with a cast of thousands.  Do come and see me, I should be in the same place as I've been for years and it's always a pleasure to be surrounded by the creativity and bustle of people!
