the opening


Our exhibition opening was a great success!  Whew!  *laughs*

Many thanks to Rachel Bouchard, gallery owner, who curated the exhibition beautifully, and to Amy Dryer.  Amy and I are both very prolific artists so Rachel had a lot of choice in what to show.  As you can see from the photos below, she created a wonderful flow of shape and colour throughout the gallery.

The response to my Multiples was very positive, and a couple of pieces even sold during the opening.  Amy's work was also very well received.  All in all we had a great afternoon.

We stayed overnight in Edmonton, and this is what I saw first thing the morning after the opening:


A lovely sight after a very positive public reaction to my new works.

coming and going

This week I sent off the work which will be in the upcoming exhibition at the Front Gallery in Edmonton.  It will be the main public exhibition of the Multiple Suites; I'm feeling excited and also a bit nervous.  Going out:




In the studio a new piece is coming along.  Below, sidelighting really shows off the stitching:
