We just held the 11th annual Oxford Studio Tour and I welcomed visitors from many places over the course of the weekend. Thank you, everyone, for coming, it really means a lot that you used your free time to come and look at my art. And welcome new blog subscribers! I hope you’ll enjoy my posts – I don’t post on a daily or weekly basis but I do like to introduce my new work and announce upcoming events, as well as occasional helpful tips for other artists. This is one of the best ways you can support me as an artist, even if you aren’t in the market to buy art for yourself. As with all types of social media, your subscription, your visits here and around my site, your ‘likes’ and your comments will all drive more new traffic here, putting new eyes on my art and helping me reach those who would be interested in buying.
Dear readers, if you missed this weekend, please know I would welcome your visit on another day. My gallery remains set up all year. Right now there is plenty of art, but that can change over the course of the year as shows occur or new venues become available. Actually, the best time to come and visit would be in the coming week, as my schedule this week is fairly open and my prices will all be increasing next weekend. It has been some time since I raised my prices, but with rising costs of materials and general rising costs of living, I feel that I must do so now. So, don’t delay if you were thinking of purchasing in the near future!
Here are a few photos of my gallery from Saturday morning, to give you an idea of what to expect if you’ve never been here. I think there is something for everyone!

Summer’s over, and it was a good one. Many sunny days were enjoyed, my garden flourished, and I did a little traveling (managed to finally get across the pond!). I’ve got lots of inspiration tucked away in my brain and I hope to bring it to fruition over the next year. It’s time for me to get back to the studio and paint, paint, paint!
The Off the Wall, Off the Vine art show in July had a good turnout and we were really lucky for most of the day as the storms avoided us.

Some of my paintings have been at the Ingersoll Public Library since the beginning of September – they come down tomorrrow.
Several of my fractal metal prints were up in the gallery at the Elm Hurst Inn over the summer, and they came down when I did another outdoor show this fall – a new one called Halls Creek Festival of Creativity. It was in Ingersoll also, and this was its first year. Here I am with them on September 12, 2015:

I’ve been juried in to an international watercolour show as well, which is very exciting! It’s in Tirana, Albania. A blog post from the IWS Philippines branch is very informative for anyone interested. That show is in November, and my two paintings are already over there.
On a much more local note, we have, as usual, Welcome Back to Otterville coming up in November. I hope you will mark your calendars and come out to our little town. Postcards designed by moi.
