Happy New Year!
It’s been a while, so let’s get caught up. Our last exhibition in Lonsdale was crazy wonderful. We saw old friends that we hadn’t seen in years. Our first art dealers, Pam and David Haight from the Rubaiyat in Calgary dropped in for a peek! Imagine.
I did a lot of work on the old blacksmith shop after that. The shop is needing a little TLC, but the forge is ready to go. Can’t wait. Where the wood fired kiln was, is now workshop space. I made myself some supports for paintings, and now I am using them.
We love seasonal food. Pierogis are winter food. Fried pierogis are serious winter food. If you come to our house for pierogis in the winter, be ready for white. Snow and table cloths. Black tie. Good dishes.
Pizza on the other hand is anytime food. If you are lucky enough to have one at Ardo in Toronto you know anytime. I am not going to tell you how long it took me to make the pizza shape support…
Lorie is an old friend. For as long as I have known her, I have wanted to do a painting of her. She has great character…smile, laugh, gesture and hair. Beautiful. I hope I have done her justice.
I did a painting of Maureen a few years ago. Same reasons.
I am doing a spring workshop for the Fusion and the Sheridan ceramics students at Sheridan in late March. More later…
I am busy. Happy. Working. The gallery is still open. Drop in anytime.
