This past few weeks have been very full with teaching.  I have completed 2 of the three foundation classes: Acrylic 1 and Watercolour 1.  This weekend I complete the last foundation class Drawing 1.  I am finding that the teaching space is far more comfortable!


I have mentioned that our house has experienced the death/rebirth cycle!   We are finally feeling settled in our space. There are still boxes that need to be gone through,  one box that seems to have disappeared…but for the most part we are settled. What a long time it takes to get this all done.

new photo of the room set up for the class.

In other news I finally got my video done for my Luminous World Art Show.  I took a series of videos just hours before the Opening happened on October 28, 2016 but when I went to process them my old computer wasn’t being at all cooperative.  Now that I have a new computer I was finally able to do the work to get the video together and up on YouTube.  Check it out!

Thanks for dropping by!  See you soon.




Last week I spent part of the afternoon outside working on the hanging apperatus for two of my journal quilts that I made in July. The weather in Yellowknife has been amazing this past week.  I hope it holds for a while longer.

The Studio Tour went rather well yesterday.  I had more than twice as many folks come than I had anticipated.  So today I thought I would  take a photo of each space in its entirety which called for the fisheye lens!  And my walls are not Dr. Suess-like. 🙂  Though that would be fun!


I hope to be back to quilting this week.

Studio C is downstairs.  I took this photo when it was dark.    My paint brushes are calling to me.  So in the morning I will get back to it!  😉

My “Happy Birthday!” cards and some paintings at now available through me or at Down to Earth Gallery here in Yellowknife

See you on Thursday.

I am pretty pleased with how these cherries turned out.  Back to watercolour painting.

A little further on.  The background is done.  Now to do the cherries and have them look right!
