Its hard these days to get a lot done
My daughter is home schooling
I am teaching four classes
I painted for awhile today
but I have been enjoying doing these little collage tins.
They are a quick creative fix
I don't fuss with them
And I like the way they turn out
I love cutting out things and sticking them down
Then adding paint and varnish
Somebody bought the cherries one on my Etsy shop a few days ago
I think I will make some more tommorow

Happy New Year!
I have been spending my days organizing my studio and planning my upcoming four classes [click on my current event blog for more about those.]
I have a lot of unfinished paintings that are close to being finished but not ready to be photographed so here is a painting I did when my daughter was a baby.
This piece is an old favorite of mine. I painted it using watercolour, gouache and ink on Rives BFK Paper. It hung in the Island Blue Classroom for awhile before a student of mine was nice enough to buy it from me. Thanks Carol!

This is a lovely photo my daughter took of Zackery and I after the first snowfall. The snow is kind of overwhelming to us here in Victoria, we dont get it very often and when it comes it kind of plays havoc with everything. Its very pretty but I hope it moves on soon.
Happy Holidays!

I hate the term Craft Fair, it makes me think of the church basements bazaars I used to go to with my Grandmother when I was a kid.
That being said I will be selling my tile pendants, magnets and art cards at two Craft Fairs in the coming weeks:
Out of Hand-A "high end" craft fair
Thursday November 20th-23rd Victoria Convention Centre Four days and two night worth of shopping pleasure
Noel Bazaar-a more urban, hip approach to the craft fair idea put on by the Rebel Rebel Clothing store.
Wed Nov26th-28th Victoria Event Centre
This one is mostly nights 5-10 on Wed and 2-10 the other two days.
Contact me if you need more details!
