Rednersville Road Studio Tour

The Rednersville Road Art Tour was an amazing success! Had over 600 people through my little studio, Single Malt Cove, over the Labour Day Weekend. My lovely assistant Kyley and I were delighted with the wonderful people who came by to see all the creativity that our little hamlet has to offer.
Many thanks to my neighbour, talented actor Rick Zimmerman, for taking these photos and making a collage of them for me!

Have just completed a large mural for Chesterfields Homegrown Café in Picton, Ontario. "Trees of Life" was a real labour of love. Thank you, Vicky, Graham and co. for such an amazing, creative opportunity. I absolutely loved doing this project, and happily welcome further inquiries for murals in public spaces.

Here is a video made by Crowe Video Productions!

Share the Canvas with me at Art in the County 2010

The proprietors of Chesterfields Homegrown Café "share the canvas" with Brandy Gale (John Oster photo)
From the blog: Art in the County  invited visitors to express their inner creativity and “Share the Canvas” outside of the exhibition last Thursday, at the corner of Ross and King streets, Picton. A large blank canvas was set up between 4-7 p.m. where all were encouraged to pick up a paint brush and add their creative flare. Organizer Brandy Gale and assistant Anne Sheasby were pleased with the turn out and noted both young and old participated to create a vibrant piece that will be on display and available for silent auction bidding until July 4th.

Having it all

I understand this. S you will be missed. xo

You Want a Social Life, With Friends

You want a social life, with friends,
A passionate love life and as well
To work hard every day. What’s true
Is of these three you may have two
And two can pay you dividends
But never may have three.

There isn’t time enough, my friends—
Though dawn begins, yet midnight ends—
To find the time to have love, work, and friends.
Michelangelo had feeling
For Vittoria and the Ceiling
But did he go to parties at day’s end?

Homer nightly went to banquets
Wrote all day but had no lockets
Bright with pictures of his Girl.
I know one who loves and parties
And has done so since his thirties
But writes hardly anything at all.
