Greetings, my beloved fans!
As the holiday season fast approaches, I have a number of events and updates to inform you about; especially should you wish to honour me by giving my work as gifts this year! I'm so grateful whenever someone decides to purchase my art. Please know how much I appreciate it, especially this time of year! I love making people smile when they see their beautiful new prints. That is my gift from you!
I have a number of shows this month. The first, the Matthews Hall Holly & Ivy Show, is an excellent venue for both shoppers and artists. I was so pleased to receive an invitation to attend this year. It will be happening on Friday the 21st (3-8) and Saturday the 22nd (9-6) at 1370 Oxford St. West, in London, Ontario, in the Great Hall & Atrium Gallery of Matthews Hall. I will have prints, calendars, and framed work with me, including this piece beautifully custom framed in green gold:
Pirates of KincardinePlayfair & Pathfinder leave Kincardine at sunset.
There are almost 40 vendors with various wares and treasures for you at the show. This will be my first time displaying in my former home city. Hope to see my friends, family, and fans in London that weekend!
I don't have much of a grace period in between, because the next big show is the weekend after that: Artful Hands Kincardine Christmas Show and Sale is at the historic beachside Kincardine Pavilion on Saturday, November 29th (10-8) and Sunday, November 30th (10-5). The show has been very enjoyable at the Pavilion, and there will be many artists and artisans on hand with unique gifts, cards, decorations, and more. I will have a variety of gorgeous prints, framed work, calendars, canvas, and posters. I'm looking forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new folks from the area. Please invite your friends to come down, enjoy a beverage, discover local talents, and visit with some cool folk.
There's an amazing little art supply store in downtown Kincardine called Artemis Art Supplies and Fine Art Instruction, located on quaint Harbour Street. It's a great place to find brushes, paints, papers, frames, instruction, inspiration, and so much more. The whole store just smells like creativity and masterpieces in the making, yet it's all so comfortable and welcoming. You must get in. PLUS, throughout the holiday season, Athina will be carrying a select number of my prints at 30 - 50+% off regular prices. There are quite a few of them there now, but hurry in for best selection! Why not pick up a sketchbook while you're there? Drawing, even just doodling, is very good for you. I said so.
Of course, you can still find my work in the usual haunts (another blog on that later!), and I'm always happy to have you contact me with orders or questions. I can help you put some sparkle and amazement under the tree!
Have I left any time for taking more photos and creating pretty pictures? You know I can't stop! Thanks for sharing my journey! I hope to see some of you this month at these great events. Support local artists! Cheers.
