The Revelstoke Visual Art Center & Parks Canada's Art in the Park exhibition is November 12-December 24 and the paintings had to be delivered beforehand. I submitted the Northern Lights, Peak Flowers, Clouds Hugging Mountains and Mt Fidelity which took me longer than expected to complete. I am thrilled of the outcome of this painting and am really looking forward to the Opening night November the 12th.

The Penticton Art Gallery has their annual Under 300 event which I really wanted to enter. It is a great event and the Penticton Art Gallery is one of the friendliest and inviting public art galleries I've been to. Below is the painting I submitted for the show, opening night is November 25th!

We spent 10 days in Vancouver and on the coast to celebrate our daughter Joni's 2nd Birthday and had a great time with family and friends. The last weekend we were there we rented a little cabin on Galiano Island right on the ocean. It was beautiful with the inspiring views, the warmth of the wood stove and Joni playing with her train set. I just love the Gulf Islands and can't wait to go back there again, hopefully in the spring.
I completed a commissioned piece for our friend Dan who has a place down in Palm Springs. This painting is of the house across the street from his that you can see balcony with the mountains towering behind. I love Palm Springs with the endless sun, hot afternoons and lounging by the pool.

In other news I've had a few studio visits, although at home as my studio is not yet complete and am working on a few commissions. The studio is almost complete, we just have to finish the ceiling and put down the floors which shouldn't take long. Now that these deadlines have been completed it's back to working on the studio and finishing it soon. It's getting cold out!!!
Stay tuned, I promise it won't be as long and hopefully the next post will include photos of a completed studio!
