First Prize- Best in Show

I am happy to share that my painting Road Home won first prize in the Sunrise Gallery's 1st Annual Juried Show. It is a fantastic show, with incredible works and I am stunned and honoured to have taken home an award. The show is on until November 15  and it is worth a look.

Flower Necklace

Another painting of a necklace by Liz Meister. Hope you like them Liz!

Bowtie Necklace

This is a painting of a necklace my friend Liz Meister made. Liz will be in the Burlington Studio Tour on November 7 & 8 as well. I am painting a few pieces of her jewellery. She may use these small panels for displaying her pieces.

Sunset Over Guelph Line

This is another large landscape I have been working on the last few days. This was a challenge and a lot of fun to paint. I think I see a series starting.

Art in Action - Burlington Studio Tour

I am in the Burlington Studio Tour on November 7 and 8. This is my first time participating in a tour and I am quite excited. The interesting part of this tour is that you will be able to see the artists at work as well as purchase finished pieces. If  you are in the area that weekend please check it out and come say hello!

One Down

And this is the lipstick painting I did last night. One Down - I thought it was a great title for this, but now that my son is sick I hope it is not foreshadowing. My husband never gets sick, so it will be me if Evan is going to pass it on to someone.

Best Friends

I meant to upload this painting with the previous one, but got a call from the school to pick up my son. It seems the flu may have hit our home. He is resting now in bed with a bucket and his favorite cartoon. Poor little fella. So much for traveling this Thanksgiving. Oh well, I nice quiet weekend at home won't be that bad.

One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you Janie for awarding me the "One Lovely Blog Award". Janie is a lovely lady who gave me this award on September 26 and I have been tardy in accepting it and passing it on to 15 other deserving souls (yes 15)- hence my tardiness. I am new to blogging and have I made 15 new site discoveries lately?  Here are my latest 5 discoveries that I go to again and again.

Smitten Kitchen -love the recipes and the delightful lady who posts them

White Plate

Another purple and orange colour scheme. I call it white plate because that plate drove me crazy. It is one of those plastic plates that went through the dishwasher too many times so it is a little warped. I would paint what I saw and it did not look right, then I would paint what I thought it should look like and it was worse. I finally just painted it as I saw it and was done with it. It is not a great photo of it; I took it inside because it is overcast and really windy here today - and cold.
