Wonderful seeing my painting "TUMBLE" Blue Mountain Birch Cove Area, NS featured on the cover of the 2018-19 Halifax Art Map. http://www.halifaxartmap.com/
This was quite unexpected and I'm thrilled to be included in a magazine that I love! I started buying this magazine years ago when it first came out, never thinking I would one day be in it:)... Thank you, Laurent Benoist!

Just wanted to let you know about an upcoming show that was organized by Rae Smith, one of our Plein Air Artists.
Rae is also one of the founding members of the Cobequid Cultural Society, and they are in the process of fundraising for a multimillion dollar Arts Centre which will be located in Middle Sackville (http://www.cccas.ca/page3.html).
Please join us next Tuesday to learn more about the Centre and view some inspiring “Winter Wonderland” paintings! Wishing everyone a very successful & creative 2018!
As some of you may know, I've been organizing a casual Plein Air group for the last few summers which is open to anyone who wishes to paint outdoors in and around the HRM. Personally I feel it has been very successful as everyone has met someone new, learned a bit about the challenges of painting outdoors and discovered new places to paint/explore. Also, thanks to the generosity of those in the group, we have been invited to paint at special events and to paint in unique locations that we would never have known existed, unless we lived in that area.
This past summer I combined two of my favourite activities, hiking & painting, as well as an evening Plein Air on Citadel Hill. Right now our group is quite large, but on average we are a very comfortable number as people are on vacation or cannot attend for a variety of reasons. The group is open to the novice or experienced artist (everyone has to start somewhere:), working in any medium. We also welcome partners and friends to accompany us and explore the area as we paint.
This month Rae Smith, an experienced pastel artist in the group, has invited us to the Gallery 97 and the show is entitled “Paintings by my friends, Plein Air Group”.
If you want to know more about us, meet some of the artists, view some inspiring work or find that unique gift for someone special, please join us this evening at 6pm. Hope to see you there!

I’m honoured that my painting “Tumble” Blue Mountain Birch Cove received third prize in the IWS Canada (www.iwscanada.ca) online competition. What a wonderful way to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary and Watercolour! A very big Thank You to all the organizers/judges and Congratulations to all the winners and 150 finalists!
“Tumble" was inspired by painting on location at Susie Lake in the Blue Mountain Wilderness Area, late October 2016. Here’s a link to their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/Bluemountaintrailsassociation/
Pleased to be part of an upcoming Group Show at Galley Nineteen Nineteen, in Halifax.
Hope to see some of you there!
