The full harvest moon will be showing tonight so I hope people get out and enjoy it. This is a little artist trading card. I like to play around with collage. I am hoping to work on an altered book with my friend, Judy Walker.
I took a course with Meira Mathison this summer at Red Deer Alberta. It was the first time I had touched clay in about ten years. She was a great teacher and a wonderful potter. I learned a lot. Now I have a number of things to fire. Hmm...
"Rules" Do not tie knots in unsuspecting snakes. Do not hop on hippos' heads to get across the lake. Do not cheat when playing chess with cheetahs late at night. It may not be illegal but that doesn't make it right. Do not connect a leopard's spots or toot a rhino's horn. Laugh at a hyena and you'll wish that you weren't born. Do not subtract with adders. Do not pinch a chimpanzee. Do not, do not, do not, do NOT times ninety-nine times three
Yes, fall is officially here. The clouds were so low I couldn't see the mountains. The wind was blowing straight out of the north, cold and rainy as Kira and I made our way on our daily walk. Here is my "White Grape Goddess" to commemorate the day.
I'm busy processing the last box of summer peaches and harvesting my garden. I have plenty of beautiful veggies to make borscht. The last few days have been very cool and grey. I can't even see our close mountains for the clouds. I'm afraid when I will be able to see them, they will be frosted with snow.
Her is my little dark grape goddess. I thought goddess collages would be very appropriate for Mabon, the harvest of prosperity.
This is my take on the Delphine Lodge. It is run by Sebastien and Jill Bell and is a wonderful funky, rather British little laid back place. They hosted the open air painting workshop Val MacPhee put on. It was such fun.
The painting on the right was near a small lake just outside of town. I don't think I like green. Some people do like the painting, but I'm not keen on it.
I am an acrylic painter exploring color and texture. I like horses, Canadian wildlife, old trucks, bold women, kind men, tequila and cashews. Most paintings are for sale. Contact me for prices and shipping if you are interested in purchasing a painting. And thanks for viewing my blog!
