It’s been a happy couple of weeks since the Oxford Studio Tour.
I received news that my painting ‘Last Light Near Goat Rock’ (below) was juried in as a finalist to IWS Canada’s ‘A Symphony in Watercolour’ exhibition, an international biennale taking place this fall, September 28 t0 October 27 in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada.
A total of 320 paintings were entered, from 32 countries around the world, so I feel very honoured to be a part of this show!
I sold a couple of paintings too (Hiking Around Horne Lake and Quiet Pond). The first one was actually sold via its display in our neighbourhood corner store – or at least it used to be our corner store. Having been sold and renovated it’s now called Market by the Falls and is pretty cute and trendy looking. You just never know which exhibit opportunities are going to result in sales!
We celebrated my father’s 96th birthday, and my sister’s birthday, I have a full house of offspring and cats for a while, and there are other family events making me happy as well. Thinking about the good things in life really does make the difficult things less so!
