Seasons are a time to be cherished. Having lived in very hot countries, Africa and Australia, I came to realize how lovely it was to have seasons, as it was either very hot or rainy and cool. The variety refreshes you and all the good things that come with the change make you feel alive. Like spring it is a time of renewing and freshness. A time of hope for sunshine and warmth. For me it is a time for inspiration and new color like the sunny yellow of daffodils, primroses, tulips and crocuses. The vibrant green of newly grown leaves. All these trigger inspiration to renew ones home with new ideas, new designs, newly painted walls, new objects that invoke memories and help to make new ones. A time when the beauty of the natural world we live in gets a chance to enter inside our homes.
So spring this year inspired my new spring floral prints. My garden was filled with spring flowers. Now I am so looking forward to summer, can't wait to see what I can grow and paint and enjoy this summer. How about You?
I hope you are enjoying spring as much as I have.
I recently donated two paintings to Arts Whistler, we had a great sneak peak show on April April 2nd. Details here. https://artswhistler.com/anonymous-artists
My bear is on this page so happy to be featured this way. I can tell you now the sale day is over. Also I painted a bald eagle for the show. The sale of the art took place on April 5th and was a great success. Last year they raised $11,000.00
See the article in the Pique local news magazine.
I am not sure yet how much was raised this year but I will let you know. It was a lot of fun and was a very organized popular show at the Maury Young arts centre in Whistler. I was very happy to be a part of the collective fundraiser and hope to join again next year. If you are looking for some great art i highly recommend you stop in next year if you come to Whislter. Find out all about events on their website. There is still some art left to buy and the art is available to see until May 1 2019.
