Greetings from my Millbrook studio!
We’ve had a wonderful warm and colourful Fall here in Southern Ontario. Between long dog walks in the forest, winterizing our charming old home, and raking leaves, I have also somehow managed to spend time in the studio creating new etchings. I will have this new work on display, with pleasure, at the two upcoming shows in Maryland.
At the WATERFOWL FESTIVAL you can find me at the Armories http://www.waterfowlfestival.org
At the SUGARLOAF CRAFT FESTIVAL I will be back in space # 186 in building #2.
Posted below is a new etching I made of a large Japanese maple tree growing near the site of the former Wye Oak in Talbot County, Maryland. Etching details are as follows. Title: Light Within, Framed size: 19 ½ x 27”, Medium: Etching and watercolour, Year: 2014
I was happy to be awarded First Prize by the jury at my recent show in Birmingham Michigan. That is always an unexpected treat for me. It was a good show (the nice ribbon certainly didn’t hurt) and I received a few large commissions to do as well. I’ve already started them.
I’m also posting a few pictures of my artwork hanging in the home of one of the people that has commissioned me. My artwork, of which they have many, looks wonderful on the walls of their beautiful home. My series of etchings hanging above their couch is called Wild Things, they depict indigenous grasses and remind me of early botanical engravings.
